Infotech Lead Asia: Exabytes, a Malaysian web hosting provider, has selected OnApp software to power cloud and CDN services for its global customer base.
Exabytes has more than 60,000 customers in 121 countries, including consumers, small businesses, public sector organizations and large enterprises. It used OnApp software to build a range of cloud hosting and CDN packages, with different pricing, performance and managed service options for its diverse customer base.
“OnApp is the only cloud software we saw that is tailor-made for the hosting industry. It fits the hosting business model. Almost everything is 100 per cent automated with OnApp. Services are set up almost instantly with the automation provided by OnApp at the back end. That really improves our bottom line. More importantly, to our customers the experience is seamless,” said Exabytes’ founder and CEO Chan Kee Siak.
“Prior to OnApp only huge companies were able to offer CDN services, because you need 50 or more locations around the globe huge investment is needed. However, by tapping into the resources available in OnApp’s CDN federation, you can still offer 50 plus locations and compete with other CDN providers,” Chan added.
OnApp products include OnApp Cloud, a cloud platform for hosts and service providers; OnApp CDN, a federated CDN platform for service providers; and OnApp Storage, a low-cost, high performance distributed SAN for cloud environments.
