DataCentred's cloud compute service is a next-generation IaaS solution based on OpenStack, the leading open source cloud infrastructure software stack.
Using open source software enables us to be extremely competitive on price. For customers that means: less than 1p per hour for a VM ? with no contractual commitment. It means 2p per Gig per month, billed hourly ?there is no contract commitment beyond an hour?s usage ? and based on actual use not pre-allocation of block storage.
Our use of these open source technologies means we can afford to invest heavily in our engineering talent, fully resource our operations and still offer our customers a low-cost service. The "you get what you pay for" maxim does not hold true here, DataCentred customers get much more for their money.
The DataCentred cloud compute solution allows customers to self-provision computing environments comprising fully virtualised networks, virtual machines and persistent storage volumes through either a graphical user interface, command line interface or APIs.
DataCentred's cloud compute service provides our customers with several key benefits: High-quality services at a low cost Full transparency of costs, with resources billed hourly Flexibility, including flexible deployment and migration Choose from capped resource usage, burstable resources or full API-driven elastic resources Data portability and no proprietary vendor lock-in Secure, fully DataCentred owned and operated Tier 3 UK datacentre 24 x 7 x 365 support Excellent support from highly-skilled engineering teams operating in a Dev-Ops support structure Choice of network access
