New marketplace of readily available IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS providers gives customers easy, fast and affordable access to best-of-breed cloud enablement services
Today, Vultr, the world’s largest privately-held cloud computing company, announced the launch of Vultr Cloud Alliance, which includes a new marketplace of plug-and-play services from leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers, to enable customers to build agile cloud operations that can scale and evolve to meet their needs at every stage. To kick off and celebrate the Cloud Alliance, Vultr will be hosting a launch event in Miami on Thursday, June 29.
With the introduction of the Vultr Cloud Alliance and marketplace of best-of-breed services from leading IaaS, PaaS and SaaS providers, organizations gain a simple, intuitive control panel that makes it easy to deploy infrastructure and add services from one central portal. Meanwhile, composable enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure and services, along with powerful API automation, allow developers to seamlessly assemble and scale modern cloud operations on demand – regardless of location. Thanks to the Cloud Alliance, organizations can scale up or down as needed with ease, without having to worry about vendor lock-in or long-term contracts.
“At Vultr, we are committed to giving our customers access to best-in-class technology, tools, and services to empower them to easily build and scale their cloud native operations,” said J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Vultr. “By leveraging plug-and-play, pre-integrated services from Vultr’s Cloud Alliance partners, digital startups and enterprises can move from legacy technology to cloud-native operations without having to worry about updating infrastructure and operations. We’ve created a digital ecosystem of partners that seamlessly integrate, so everything just works.”
A New Marketplace For A Best-of-Breed Applications and Cloud Services
As digital startups and enterprises alike look to scale their cloud-native and generative AI applications, they are faced with the cost, complexity and lock-in that comes with choosing a Big Tech cloud. Rather than having freedom to choose the services that best suit their needs, they are stuck navigating complicated controls, services and configuration bloat and complexity. At the same time, limited server locations and network connectivity result in latency and data residency issues that impact application delivery, performance and customer experience.
To enable organizations to overcome these challenges, Vultr, the only MACH-compliant independent cloud computing provider, has created the Cloud Alliance and unveiled a new marketplace of plug-and-play services as an affordable alternative to Big Tech cloud offerings. Building on its initial partnerships with Cloud 66, Backblaze, Domino Data Lab and Console Connect, the Cloud Alliance enables organizations to build custom cloud operations from an ecosystem of enterprise-grade IaaS, PaaS and SaaS providers, so they can scale and meet their needs at every stage. This environment enables customers to spin up Vultr Kubernetes Engine (VKE) clusters on cloud, GPU and bare metal, and then pick and choose the pre-built, container-based services needed to deploy in that cluster, while benefiting from:
- Composability – a compatible ecosystem of best-of-breed IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS service providers gives customers unrivaled flexibility in building and scaling cloud operations.
- Price to performance – with the freedom to choose from a range of enterprise-grade partner services offering competitive, transparent pricing, customers gain full control over their cloud operations and costs.
- Global reach – 32+ global data center locations allow customers to set up cloud operations in the markets they serve, decreasing data sovereignty and latency, while improving performance, and enabling powerful edge compute instances.
“With the introduction of Vultr’s new Cloud Alliance, customers gain flexibility in building and scaling their cloud operations,” said Dave McCarthy, Vice President of Cloud and Edge Infrastructure Services at IDC. “Composability is at the core of this new partner ecosystem, enabling organizations to easily access and integrate a diverse range of services. This empowers customers to optimize their cloud strategies by selecting the most suitable solutions to meet their specific needs, ultimately driving efficiency and growth.”
