G-Core Labs is entering the competitive world of the public cloud, with the company opening up a data centre in Luxembourg to support the launch. That will be followed by a further seven data centres that will be dotted around the world.
The public cloud is an incredibly competitive space, with G-Core Labs now planning to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Amazon’s Web Services, Microsoft’s Azure and Google Cloud. Of course, the company doesn’t expect to have an infrastructure larger than those players, but that’s being seen as a USP for the brand – which promises to work with companies of any size to make sure they have the necessary IT infrastructure to scale when their business grows. It’s also promising to be on average 20-30% cheaper than the big five operators.
For G-Core Labs, there’s no shortage of companies looking to switch to the public cloud, and it’s already working with a number of big-name firms on its private cloud services such as MTS, Beeline, Megaphone, Tinkoff Bank and Wargaming Group; the latter of which runs the World of Tanks, World of Warships and World of Warplanes games.
Customers who are interested in G-Core Labs will find a virtual data centre that can be scaled to fit your business in just a few clicks. The firm says that this will boost the development, testing, and launching of new products and services significantly without buying the expensive necessary equipment. It also carries the benefit of supporting websites during peak demand, such as retailers during cyber week and Black Friday, ensuring that they have the infrastructure necessary to keep their websites running.
“All these tasks can be performed with the help of our public cloud. Here in your personal account you can order a specific set of any capacities for your needs, and you pay only for the resources you actually use by the minute, utilising a pay-as-you-go model. Today, our public cloud already offers a standard functionality of crossfunctional virtual machines, not limited in capacity, with the options of smooth automatic scaling, system backup, and data disaster recovery. We allow our clients to create virtual cloud networks where they can set up private clusters to do necessary computations or to isolate a certain set of applications within their own cloud network,” said Vsevolod Vayner, G-Core Labs cloud platform department head.
To support its new public cloud, G-Core Labs will be opening a total of eight data centres around the world as part of the initial rollout. The first market is already live, with a new data centre in Luxembourg. Eventually the company plans to have sites in Moscow, Frankfurt, Singapore, Sydney, Santa Clara, Sao Paolo, and Khabarovsk.
