2013-01-03 22:35:41 - Crosspeer provides Enterprises with Next Generation Open Cloud Computing Infrastructure that is unmatched in Flexibility, Scalability, Performance and Price.
Crosspeer is delivering the Next Generation Open Cloud on its Cloud Computing Infrastructure with the high-performance KVM hypervisor. KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine) is a proven enterprise open-source hypervisor that is built directly into the Linux kernel. It enables multiple operating system instances to run securely on a single processor.
Crosspeer provides customers and end users of its cloud servers with one of the highest-performing and most efficient public cloud computing environments in the industry. What this means for CIOs and IT professionals is that the Crosspeer Cloud Infrastructure helps them to prepare and transition their IT computing resources into tomorrow's computing ecosystem.
"We have been proponents of open source technologies for many years," remarked Salvador Diaz-Verson, CEO of Crosspeer. "The code development
for KVM happens in a true collaborative community where hundreds of developers the world over are contributing their talent and expertise. Not being tightly controlled by one owner as with proprietary hypervisors, makes it a smart choice for enterprises looking for an Open Solution for their Cloud Computing resources.”
KVM has many advantages compared to other hypervisors in use today, especially for public cloud infrastructure providers like Crosspeer. Although newer to market than its competitors, the KVM hypervisor is secure, rock-solid and well-positioned to quickly overtake proprietary solutions. Its technical approach is elegant and streamlined, making it superior in performance than first generation hypervisors that have become more complex over time.
In recent tests, KVM scored higher than its competitors in terms of scalability, flexibility, performance and price. With the KVM hypervisor being tightly integrated into the Linux kernel rather than being a separate add-on, ensures that KVM is fully tested and continually enhanced in tandem with mainline Linux distributions.
"It is well known that Red Hat, a long-time supporter of the Xen hypervisor officially dropped Xen in favor of KVM," said Patrice Haftman, CTO of Crosspeer. "The move sent a signal that a new generation of open virtualization would emerge. With both Intel and AMD providing hardware support for KVM in their chipsets, demonstrates that KVM is laying the foundation for an entire ecosystem of virtualized computing environments. From the bare-metal processor up to the management layer and tool chain, KVM is spawning the growth of new system components that can take advantage of these efficiencies. This type of organic innovation and ubiquitous influence can only happen in the open-source world."
Users can test drive the KVM hypervisor which is the underlying foundation of the Crosspeer Cloud. The company offers a FREE Cloud Server Trial from which users can seamlessly upgrade to a production cloud server. The Crosspeer Cloud supports any x86 operating system, and users are free to utilize their own installation media, even during their Free Trial.
