MILAN, Italy, and SAN FRANCISCO, Nov 25 — Libero, Italy's most popular portal and Internet service provider, is using Joyent's SmartDataCenter cloud computing software and services to launch the country's largest on-demand public cloud offering. Libero's public cloud will give businesses and developers access to a full line of unparalleled cloud-based solutions, running applications faster than any other cloud on the most advanced, efficient and secure platform on the market.
Businesses and developers get quick and easy access to real time infrastructure resources with a pay as you go pricing model. Customers order resources online based upon their needs, and within minutes the resources are allocated and ready to use.
"Libero wishes to serve clients with any type of cloud computing need," said Antonio Converti, CEO of Libero. "Our service also excels at providing highly scalable, performant and efficient computing resources on a temporary basis, such as for massive data analysis, research and development projects, or peek data processing times at month's end."
Libero's public cloud based on SmartDataCenter offers Italian businesses and developers the following benefits:
"Our relationship combines the strength of Libero's IT and online service capabilities with Joyent's proven high value cloud computing infrastructure," says Philippe Weppe, president of EMEA for Joyent. "Customers will benefit greatly from the efficiency, flexibility and quality of the Libero cloud."
In the cloud, efficient, scalable infrastructure can make the difference between profit and loss. That's why Libero elected to deploy the latest enterprise grade PowerEdge R710 servers to maximize performance and efficiencies.
