Verio, an NTT Communications company that provides online business solutions, has introduced a new Cloudn customer management portal. According to a statement from the company, this portal is designed to make it easier for customers to provision, configure and manage their cloud solutions by putting everything in a single location.

Cloudn is a scalable public cloud computing and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution. Verio said that Cloudn takes advantage of Citrix CloudPlatform powered by Apache CloudStack.

Some of the features of Cloudn include:

  • Load balancing – Cloudn users can distribute workloads between Cloudn compute virtual servers.

  • Auto scaling – Cloudn automatically increases and decreases the number of its compute virtual servers and load balancers.

  • Monitoring – Cloudn monitors the running status, load and other aspects of virtual servers, data disks, load balancers and auto scaling groups.

In addition to unveiling the new Cloudn customer management portal, Verio and NTT Communications have reduced the prices on IaaS Cloudn offerings by up to 37 percent, effective next month.

“By lowering [our] pricing, Verio is demonstrating its focus to become a force in the North American IaaS market,” Fred Martin, senior vice president of Product, Engineering and Operations at Verio, said in a prepared statement. “Customers do not like surprises, and free bandwidth eliminates one of the largest, and most difficult to predict, expenses of cloud computing.”

The new version of Cloudn, released last month, is suited for the infrastructure requirements of independent software vendors (ISVs) and software developers in both large and small organizations, Verio said. Through its Global Tier-1 IP Network, Verio provides partners and customers with access to business solutions in more than 150 data centers worldwide.
