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!
