Canadian Web Hosting, Canada’s leading web hosting and cloud services provider, has announced the impending release of their new 100% Canada-based OpenStack environment, OpenStack Ocata. Ocata is the 15th release of the most popular open source software for building clouds and is scheduled for public release in September. Canadian Web Hosting believes that the addition of Ocata will bring in a range of new features with improvements in stability, scalability, and manageability. This means that customers can expect higher uptimes, live migrations of Virtual Machines, and a variety of new services like VPN, DNSaaS, and relational database in addition to their powerful cloud computing and cloud storage that is fully Canadian.

This new deployment offers an improvement in terms of allowing stable and fast instance upgrades (like adding more CPUs or RAM), a stable and highly available storage backend, load balancing between instances, firewall capabilities on your virtual router, and more.

The developer and application focused environment supports new open APIs and offers additional support for containerized services.

“This latest version of Openstack focuses on stability and security, which is what we at Canadian Web Hosting strive to provide for all of our clients,” said Canadian Web Hosting’s Matt McKinney. “Our new Openstack deployment with Ocata should bring greater peace of mind for anybody looking to host services on a public cloud, thanks to the cutting edge of Openstack technology, backed with Canadian Web Hosting’s guarantee.”
