Today, we’re announcing the private beta launch of Brightbox Cloud – our new IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) platform!
We’ve dedicated several months to developing and engineering our new cloud platform from the ground up (almost literally). We’ve kitted out two new datacentre “Zones”, set up a new resilient network across them and built-out a distributed cloud system which enables some very exciting features such as re-mappable cloud IP addresses, easy import/export of your cloud server images and much, much more.
We’re launching the private beta phase with our simple command-line client (a full control panel GUI will be available soon). Check out the screencast below to see how easy it is to get started.
If you’d like to get [free] access to our private beta programme, simply submit a request via the beta site and we’ll be in touch shortly!
I’m extremely proud of our achievement, Brightbox is the first company in the UK to offer a “true” distributed IaaS cloud – quite a shake-up for the European cloud market. Stay tuned – there’s a lot more in store!
