Web Hosting ReviewsCupertino, CA – Cloud.com, a leader in open source cloud computing software, today announced Profitability.net, a data center and provider of innovative collocation and cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solutions, is using Cloud.com CloudStack™ to build, deploy and manage Appica®, a full suite of private and public cloud services. Appica provides ground-breaking public and private cloud services and storage services, allowing enterprises to add server instances as needed, manage storage capacity, and gain access to enterprise features that will improve the performance of business applications. Profitability.net selected CloudStack for its ability to easily integrate with both commodity solutions and next-generation hardware, allowing the company to concentrate on adding value and differentiating Appica.

“Profitability.net is focused on building cutting-edge cloud solutions for our customers. Appica enables our customers to deploy servers and storage in minutes compared to in-house projects that can take days or months,” said Aaron Larkins, CEO at Profitability.net. “CloudStack provides us with the reliable, easy-to-use solution we need to meet customer demands. With its amazing flexibility, it also allowed us to build the right cloud for the market in a cost-effective manner, and continue to enhance our cloud offerings and accelerate our time-to-market.”

Cloud solutions continue to create new opportunities and models to improve IT utilization for enterprises. Appica provides computer servers (CPU, RAM) and SAN storage on demand, using three storage layers to protect critical data. Appica also provides Continuous Data Protection (CDP) and allows customers to utilize scheduled/on-demand snapshot technology to safeguard data or changes within their infrastructure during patch cycles. With Appica, enterprises can simplify the provisioning of new servers and storage to a five-minute process via a web management platform. Once enabled, users can configure firewalls, load balancing and data protection. Additionally, Appica can provide enterprise customers with a private cloud environment that is custom engineered to meet the computer, storage I/O and capacity requirements needed. By combining forces, Cloud.com and Profitability.net are able to give customers the simplicity, flexibility and performance they demand for their cloud solutions.

“Cloud.com CloudStack was designed with IT managers in mind with the intention of making the task of building, deploying and managing a highly-scalable cloud straightforward and easy. Appica is a great example of this, as it enables organizations to decrease management time and cost while also providing an easy-to-use interface,” said Sheng Liang, CEO at Cloud.com. “Appica is a unique offering and the flexibility of CloudStack has enabled them to achieve great success. We look forward to continuing to work with them.”
