myLoc starts HP Helion OpenStack public beta test with Odin service automation

Munich - June 11, 2015 - At the OpenStack DACH Day in Berlin, myLoc managed IT AG will launch its myCloud solution with a public beta test. The product developed on the basis of OpenStack will be realised with HP Helion and the Odin Service Automation Platform and hosted on HP ProLiant servers of the latest generation, Gen9.

"After more than four years of development, we have finally reached the point," explains Christoph Herrnkind, CEO of myLoc managed IT AG. "First we are starting our public beta test to gain valuable customer feedback in order to launch our myCloud in the third quarter of this year."

In addition to the hypervisor KVM, the distributed file system CEPH is used for storage, which is operated exclusively with high-performance SSD hard disks. Within the scope of the beta test myLoc provides the following services completely free of charge and without any contractual obligation for 3 months: 4 vCores, 16GB RAM, 500 GB storage space, 4 IPv4 addresses and up to 4 virtual instances.

"Customers need cloud services that integrate seamlessly into their hybrid cloud environments," said Robert Wigger, vice president, HP Service Provider Business EMEA. "With HP Helion OpenStack as the open source IaaS standard and Odin Service Automation as the management platform, myLoc with its myCloud solution offers the prerequisites for this".

The limited public beta test is now available at helion.myLoc.de with the code HP-HELION-BETA-20150611. myCloud is made available within a few seconds through flexibly scalable performance features and hourly billing via Odin Service Automation.
