Canadian Web Hosting Joins OpenStack Foundation

Canadian Web Host and Cloud Hosting provider Canadian Web Hosting has announced its commitment to support the development of OpenStack®, the open source software for building public, private and hybrid clouds, and is now a corporate sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation.

By becoming a corporate sponsor of OpenStack, Canadian Web Hosting is joining a community of more than 850 unique organizations who are committed to building cloud architecture based on open source software and open standards.

Canadian Web Hosting has been integrating OpenStacks Cloud Operating System into their existing Canadian Cloud Hosting infrastructure including the Compute, Networking and Storage services that are accessible through OpenStacks dashboard giving users an easy web interface to automatically provision cloud-based resources in Canada. Canadian Web Hosting will provide both monthly server and storage services, and hourly usage billing, to give customers the flexibility they need to manage their resources. With the summer release, companies and their development teams looking to benefit from OpenStack’s high-performance cloud environment without the typical vendor lock, will have immediate access to a system that delivers repeatability, usability and massive scalability to its users. With the promise of OpenStack, and its open standards for both public and private clouds, companies in and outside of Canada will benefit from the new open source cloud computing platform that delivers easy to use infrastructure-as-a-service, while benefiting from Canada’s strict regulations to protect their data and privacy.

“OpenStack gives us the ability to continue supporting the open source community that has been a big part of our company since 1998. More importantly, we will be doing something a bit different by not only offering our corporate support behind the platform but also reaching out to our customers and working with them to join our efforts in increasing the footprint of Canadian Web Hosting within the community and supporting several of the interrelated projects within the platform. It’s a unique proposition and we are excited to be working with our customer’s hand-in-hand to bring these cutting edge technologies to Canada,” said Matt McKinney, Director at Canadian Web Hosting.

“We are excited to welcome Canadian Web Hosting to the OpenStack community and look forward to advancing the OpenStack mission with their support,” said Mark Collier, COO of the OpenStack Foundation. “As our community continues to grow globally, we are thrilled to see the innovative solutions Canadian Web Hosting and other members of the community continue to bring to market, helping to deliver new open source solutions to the enterprise and produce the best cloud software in the industry.”

Back in March of 2013, Canadian Web Hosting expanded its Canadian Cloud Hosting services to include multiple cloud server locations across Canada including Vancouver, BC and Toronto, ON. “The purpose behind our cloud services was always to give customers an easy-to-use, highly reliable cloud hosting environment that enables companies to meet their corporate governance requirements,” said Matt McKinney.
