In what the company says its most important announcement of the year, and aiming to offer agile scaling of IT infrastructures and boost product development through a multifunctional virtual datacentre, edge solution provider G-Core Labs has announced the launch of a public cloud.

G Core Labs logo 25Nov2019G-Core Labs believes that to be successful in increasingly competitive environments, media companies need quick online need quick access to development and business operation tools that can be scaled up as soon as such a necessity arises. The company cites a few use cases such as to withstand a peak influx of website users during a service period, or to launch a new service.

To that end, the new infrastructure is designed to allows companies of any size and from any field to scale their IT infrastructure and also to boost the developing, testing, and launching of new products and services. The G-Core Labs public cloud is integrated with the company's other products and services, including its content delivery system that provides an average cloud response time of less than 30 ms and a media platform for streaming and providing video-on-demand. G-Core Labs claims that its cloud services are on average 20–30% cheaper than the same services from the big five providers.

“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,” explained G-Core Labs cloud platform department head Vsevolod Vayner.

“Our public cloud already offers a standard functionality of cross-functional 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.”

The G-Core Labs cloud is based in Luxembourg. Points of presence in Moscow, Frankfurt, Singapore, Sidney, Santa Clara, São Paolo, and Khabarovsk are to follow. Within platform services, or PaaS, G-Core Labs plans to add an option of auto-deploying Kubernetes clusters for container orchestration soon, to finish the integration of a platform for developing, testing, and launching AI applications and Hadoop-based systems for working with big data. G-Core Labs is also currently working with customers and partners on a number of pilot projects related to neural networks.
