Metacloud Partners with Trace3 to Bring OpenStack-based Private Cloud Solutions to a Wider Audience
Metacloud’s technology and Trace3’s innovative consultancy-based business model combined will make it easier for companies in all industries to access the benefits of private cloud
PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Metacloud, Inc., a leader in deploying and operating OpenStack as a service for some of the world’s largest companies, is pleased to announce that they have been selected as the open source cloud solution of choice by Trace3, a leader in digital business transformation. The agreement makes Metacloud solutions an official part of the Trace3 portfolio, which will benefit both organizations by increasing Trace3’s selection of proven cutting edge solutions and by giving Metacloud access to a large and sophisticated team of consultants.
“Trace3 is an ideal partner for Metacloud”
The two Metacloud solutions Trace3 will be offering are Metacloud OnPrem and Metacloud Hosted. Both solutions are built on the company’s enterprise-hardened version of the OpenStack software platform, and feature advanced operational support from one of the most sophisticated teams of cloud engineers in the industry. Metacloud OnPrem is designed for customers that want to leverage their existing hardware and data center facilities for private cloud initiatives. Metacloud Hosted is a turn-key private cloud solution that provides it all—hardware, software, expert support, and secure hosting—for companies that either don’t own those assets, or simply do not want to be involved in day-to-day cloud management.
“We carefully evaluated a number of OpenStack solutions, and determined that Metacloud had the right approach,” said Anoj Willy, Trace3’s Cloud Practice Director. “Our customers want public cloud agility with predictable performance, data locality, and security, and Metacloud OnPrem brings all that to the table. Their focus on cloud operations is extremely important to us. Most of their competitors are just focusing on standing up the environment, but we believe that making sure it runs smoothly over time is more critical. We also knew their non-prescriptive hardware model would appeal to customers looking for maximum flexibility. Our plan is to make Metacloud a key component in our broader cloud strategy.”
"Trace3 is an ideal partner for Metacloud,” said Steve Curry, Metacloud co-founder and President. “They have a nuanced understanding of the current technology landscape, and they’re determined to bring the right solutions to their customers. They’re only going to present Metacloud solutions when and where they make sense. That approach lays the groundwork for a successful relationship between us and our customers from the beginning. We really appreciate that philosophy and that level of integrity.”
