VEXXHOST Launches New Managed Kubernetes Services

MONTRÉAL, CANADA – VEXXHOST, a Canadian cloud computing provider, has announced today the launch of its container service which is used to manage container clusters. The solution is now fully available to users as a complimentary service offered on VEXXHOST’s public, private, and hybrid cloud. The container service is compatible with multiple container platforms.

The cloud infrastructure provider announced that the first platform available to its users on the container service is Kubernetes. Kubernetes is an open source container orchestration created by Google and is now part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). The service automates deployment, scaling and monitoring of containerized applications. VEXXHOST is offering Kubernetes as a service which allows users to benefit from features such as high availability, load balancing, and health monitoring without needing to invest training a technical team to run Kubernetes clusters.

“We are excited to offer a managed Kubernetes solution as we believe it provides tremendous value to any container users,” says CEO and co-founder of VEXXHOST, Mohammed Naser. “The service eliminates the complexity of managing container infrastructure while remaining agnostic of any infrastructure model.”

VEXXHOST offers all the infrastructure solutions needed to run Kubernetes such as compute, networking and storage solutions. These services are available on public, private and hybrid cloud and are based on OpenStack. This allows users to easily deploy Kubernetes on their hosting model of choice, as clusters can be span across private, public or hybrid cloud environments without requiring any change to the code or any back-end configuration changes.

The new container service, which is powered by the OpenStack project Magnum, gives users the freedom to deploy Kubernetes clusters separately or side-by-side with OpenStack. Users can use OpenStack to provision virtual machines and bare metal compute parallel to Kubernetes clusters.

VEXXHOST announced that it will soon be adding multiple other container platforms to its container service to create a fully comprehensive container solution to its users.

Spotify Switches Its Operations onto Google’s Cloud

The Swedish startup that was using the data centers of AWS in UK and USA has announced the shift of their entire services onto the cloud computing services of Google. On the news blog of Spotify, it is officially announced by the company that they have chosen the Google Cloud Platform as their infrastructure partner to run the famous music streaming service. Before finalizing this decision the company was providing their services by managing their own hardware and other data centers including the AWS.

Nicholas Harteau the vice president, Engineering & Infrastructure Spotify said, “Google has long been a thought-leader in this space, and this shows in the sophistication and quality of its data offerings. From traditional batch processing with Dataproc, to rock-solid event delivery with Pub/Sub to the nearly magical abilities of BigQuery, building on Google’s data infrastructure provides us with a significant advantage where it matters the most.”

Spotify plans to shift its center computing infrastructure, where the company stores, retains and analyzes the very huge data it gathers, from its personal amenities to Google’s. The music-streaming service policy is to keep on storing its music files on Amazon Simple Storage Service. With this, the company will go on with the distribution of music to its distant clients via numerous content delivery services, which consists the Amazon Cloud Front also.

He further said “We have a large and complex back-end, so this is a large and complex project that will take us some time to complete.  We’re looking forward to sharing our experiences with you as we go, so watch our engineering blog for more information on what we learn, build and break along the way.”

Spotify state that it’s a huge deal for them to work with a cloud giant like Google, but it’s also a gigantic contract for Google that an industry boss in the streaming group would prefer them. Surely, Spotify could have selected to spread out service with AWS or even chosen Microsoft’s Azure cloud offering to be on the basis of their service.

The reason behind choosing the Google for this service is the experience of using the Google’s data platform and tools. Good infrastructure is important to keeping things up and running, but the thing that is more important is to make all of the groups more competent and more successful, and Google’s data stack are doing this for our company.

Verizon Announces the Discontinuation of Its Public Cloud Service

An official Email has been sent to the Verizon Customers to notify them about the upcoming changes to the Verizon Cloud Services that include shutting down of its public cloud.

Verizon  Verizon Communications has given out notices to its clients that it will drag the plug off, of its public cloud offering. In the email to Verizon Cloud clients, as posted by Kenn White on Twitter, consumers of Verizon’s Public Cloud and Reserved Performance Cloud Spaces services should have to formulate other plans by April 12, when the virtual servers will be switched off. Customers of the Verizon Virtual Private Cloud and Verizon Cloud Storage will not be exaggerated by the move, while the Cloud Marketplace store, which was launched in the huge display in 2014, will also close.

“Verizon will discontinue its Public Cloud, Reserved Performance, and MarketPlace services on April 12, 2016. As an alternative, Verizon offers Virtual Private cloud (VPC), which provides the cost effectiveness of a multi-tenant public cloud, but includes added levels of configuration, control” according to the email.

Virtual Private Cloud is that other service that Verizon be going to carry on, offering to the business market and it was said by the company that it is making major investments in the business cloud platform in 2016.

Further, it was informed in the email that “On April 12, 2016, Verizon will shut down any virtual servers running on Public Cloud or Reserved performance Cloud Spaces. Please take steps now to plan for migration to VPC or another alternative before the discontinuation date. Verizon will retain no content or data remaining on these Cloud Spaces after that date and any content or data that you do not transfer prior to discontinuation will be irrecoverably deleted.”

It is also a possibility that the Verizon will start working with Google to accommodate the extremely increasing requirements for hybrid cloud systems among business clients, with a Verizon branded hybrid service running on Google’s public cloud an option. This option would preclude the requirement for Verizon having its own public cloud service. Still, none of the both companies has inveterate or deprived of the assumption about their suspected partnership.

It is a fact that the cloud market is growing aggressively and the giants of cloud providing industry have left behind the small enterprises that are struggling to satisfy their customers with their services.
