LeaseWeb USA Launches West Coast Cloud Platform

Expansion supports customer growth, improves end-user access and provides continent-wide redundancy.

Manassas, VA - May 9, 2017 – LeaseWeb USA Inc., one of the world's largest cloud hosting brands, has deployed its cloud platform, powered by Apache CloudStack® and Netapp, to its San Francisco-area datacenter. The move provides more capacity to serve the company’s growing U.S. customer base and locates this powerful platform closer to end users based on the West Coast. 

“LeaseWeb’s public and private cloud platforms provide rapid scalability and total control over resource allocation for organizations and companies across a wide range of industries,” said Lex Boost, CEO of LeaseWeb USA. “With this addition to LeaseWeb’s cloud product proposition in its SFO datacenter, first opened in 2014, and the continued rollout of new functionality to the Los Angeles datacenter received through the Nobis Technology Group acquisition, LeaseWeb is continuing its rapid expansion on the West Coast.”

LeaseWeb’s cloud platform is ideal for software developers, application builders, experienced cloud users, gaming companies and hosting resellers. It is also suitable for transcoding companies that need an optimal private cloud solution for dynamic media. 

Key features include an open API that replaces manual maintenance tasks with automated tools or integration into owned systems. LeaseWeb’s rich GUI helps monitor resource usage, assign capacity to projects and control all aspects of the infrastructure. 

Dedicated resources provide full, unshared access to all cores and memory available in a private cloud. This cloud platform also offers redundant enterprise-class storage including access to advanced storage features. Finally, all of LeaseWeb’s cloud platforms run on servers with multiple 2+ Ghz Intel Xeon processors and are connected to multi-gigabit networks. 

LeaseWeb’s cloud platform is also available on the East Coast from the company’s Manassas datacenter, located outside Washington DC. Positioning services closer to end users enhances customer experience, by decreasing content delivery times. Geographic spread also provides remote backup solutions and locational redundancy for maximum uptime. 

“When your business is Internet-driven, speed and reliability are the two absolute prerequisites,” said Boost.
