MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--At the HostingCon trade conference today, ZeroStack, Inc. CEO and co-founder Dr. Ajay Gulati delivered a session titled “Hosting Private Clouds” and also participated in a “speed panel” on Strategy and Innovation for hosting providers. According to Dr. Gulati, hosting providers don’t want to invest heavily in cloud expertise, but recognize that they need to offer cloud service options to their customers. The answer, he said, is a self-driving cloud.
“Hosting providers have to both compete with public cloud on price, and gain trust as a regional provider of services, but many cloud infrastructure options are too complex and expensive to support a solid business model,” said Dr. Gulati. “Hosting providers need self-driving cloud platforms that put them in the cloud business quickly and inexpensively, and that’s the advantage that ZeroStack offers.”

ZeroStack uses smart software and artificial intelligence to deliver a self-driving, fully integrated private cloud platform that offers the agility and simplicity of public cloud at a fraction of the cost. On premises, ZeroStack’s cloud operating system converts bare-metal servers into a reliable, self-healing cloud cluster. This cluster is consumed via a self-service SaaS portal. The SaaS portal also collects telemetry data and uses artificial intelligence to create models that help customers make decisions about capacity planning, troubleshooting and optimized placement of applications. The integrated App Store enables one-click deployment of many applications that provide the platform for most modern cloud native applications. This solution is fully integrated with public clouds to offer seamless migration between clouds.
