Protect Your Right to a Free Internet with SaaS

Over the last decade hyperscale cloud providers have dominated the Internet. The giant cloud companies have shown to be poor custodians of their customers' data, interests, and futures. They are harvesting their customers' sales data to build their own products and build their own competing software-as-a-service offerings off the backs of hardworking, small open source software projects. The mega cloud providers have created a less free, open Internet leaving customers wondering if there is an alternative software product or application.

OpenStack is the only enterprise-grade, fully open source solution for building your own private cloud. At InMotion, our core mission is to support a more free, open Internet. We are making OpenStack more accessible, flexible, and affordable. Our innovative Flex Metal Cloud platform makes OpenStack a true open source competitor to the big private clouds with on-demand hardware provisioning, usage-based billing, and flexible scaling. This includes OpenStack's great features and functionality for both the cloud-native application stack and legacy infrastructure without vendor lock-in, licensing, or anti-competitive incompatibilities with other providers or solutions.

Take control of your own infrastructure

Manage Your Costs

Many application developers and software providers have struggled to manage their costs on the mega cloud platforms. The following items may be happening to your IT Team:

  • Sudden rush in traffic or burst of growth
  • Lack of resources to manage provisioning and deprovisioning
  • Cloud deployments using more resources than you committed to using

Optimize your Hardware

Public Clouds were not built for your specific use case. To get the best performance and cost efficiency for your application stack, you must take control of the infrastructure you use to run your services. Our Flex Metal Cloud platform uses the latest hardware components and technology:

  • NVMe SSDs for enhanced storage speed
  • Custom design your cloud infrastructure with our Reserve Pool by selecting parts from our catalog to meet your needs

Flex Metal Cloud never has overage fees, and your unit of usage - a physical hardware node - naturally protects you against unexpected usage or provisioning, and our on-demand automated deployment system still gives you the flexibility to scale your resources up or down based on your needs. You can also manage hardware budgets for your clouds to give your teams the ability to build clouds that meet their unique needs without having to worry about spending too much.
