This data center is second after NYC2 data center capable of such rich features and capabilities.

It was announced by the digitalOcean this week that they are going to start a modern state of the art data center in Amsterdam city – it will be highly featured and capable of providing shared private networking. Previously, this kind of feature was available through New York datacenter NYC2; it is the first data center of DigitalOcean that will provide these kinds of facilities to its European customers directly from within the European area. This is second datacenter of DigitalOcean cloud company – AMS1 is already operating in the city. This data center is located in the facilities of TelecityGroup in the city of Amsterdam.

This AMS2 data center would increase the capacity of servers and shared private networking capabilities of the company in Europe and across the globe. The shared private networking capabilities will provide additional features and capabilities to the customers such as database replication, private communication between host to host and file storage. Another important feature of this shared private networking service is that the bandwidth used for private communication would not be counted for the account bandwidth. This is a value addition to the cloud servers and cloud computing services of the company.

The details of how to activate the shared private networking was also given in the statement. According to the details, the customer should select the private networking checkbox during the process of creating the new droplets from the creation screen. Meanwhile, already created droplets can also be enabled to shared private networking features through settings on the control panel.

At the meantime, this cloud computing service provider disclosed some futuristic ambitions of the company – according to the statement, the company is planning more security related features such as IPV6, charts and graphs of private networking use in the near future. Also, the company is planning to start more cloud data centers in European as well as other regions. The UK market of cloud computing is being explored to start another state of the art data center.

The open source cloud hosting platform OpenStack that is supported by over 80 vendors has announced the release of a new version today.  The latest release that is labeled as “Diablo” has around 75 new features and enhancements to help increase the amount of use cases in order to increase it’s ecosystem, according to their press release.

OpenStack is a set of open sourced applications that allows anyone to create their own private or public account on a highly scalable platform with no vendor lock-ins.  The fact that the code is entirely open source allows anyone to extend it to their own usage scenarios.

The latest release added highly requested features such as support for enterprise storage systems and much needed features within all three elements of the OpenStack software which are compute (codenamed Nova), object store (codenamed Swift) and image service (codenamed Keystone).

All of these services running together allow anyone to create their own cloud web hosting infrastructure just like any of the infrastructures currently offered online.  This allows for enterprises that require locally hosting data for security purposes an easier path to entering cloud computing.

The most common management interface for the application is led by Nebula which creates a self-service portal that allows an easy web interface to deploy, destroy and manage servers within an OpenStack infrastructure.  The OpenStack dashboard project has also seen advancements in order to make use of the new authentication system “Keystone” with the release of the new OpenStack version.

“The OpenStack Dashboard project provides a way to visualize OpenStack and many of its capabilities. The addition of an official web based user interface will help to drive wider adoption of OpenStack,” mentioned Devin Carlen, the technical lead for the OpenStack dashboard project, founder and VP of engineering at Nebula.  He also added: “We want to ensure that the OpenStack user interface architecture is flexible enough to support the requirements of service providers, businesses, and the rich ecosystem of emerging products and services that are compatible with OpenStack.”

The new re-engineered API codenamed “Quantum” also allows for an extremely versatile API that allows the development of an entire ecosystem that surrounds the OpenStack application services.
