This newly developed private cloud service would be very easy to use with any high level of expertise of implementation of the virtual machines.

While talking about the ease of use, the official statement elaborated that the private cloud services have always been very complicated due to large number of modules and other technicalities – but, the private cloud services offered by Mirantis are based on the OpenStack Express platform, which is more easy to install and implement the cloud computing services without any much expertise.

It was also informed that the pricing schemes of this newly introduced service would be highly competitive based on “pay as you go” formula. The company claimed that any person with a little knowledge of IT can order and implement the private cloud on the Mirantis platform on any one of the three major data centers of IBM/Softlayer located in San Jose (Silicon Valley), Singapore, and Amsterdam.

The CEO of Mirantis cloud service provider company, Mr. Adrian Lionel, in an interview, said, “This is a top-down OpenStack cloud at the click of a button, running in the data center of your choice, you select from a drop-down menu how big a cloud you want, where you want it deployed and you pay as you go”. He further maintained that “There’s no long-term contract and you can stop any time you want”. “A customer can, for example, order 2 bare metal servers that support up to 60 virtual machines for $59.98 a day or up to 50 bare metal servers (up to 2,940 VMs) for just under $1,500 per day” he added.

While commenting on this new move of Mirantis, the analyst of Group 451 Mr. Carl Brooks said, “t looks easy and fun but it’s actually a giant pain in the rear and super complicated under the hood. It requires direct expertise that doesn’t come with other types of IT operations.”
