New OpSource data center should boost cloud performance

OpSource’s sparkly new Silicon Valley data center should cut latency times and boost performance for enterprise and service provider customers on the West Coast.

In a statement, Treb Ryan, the CEO of OpSource, called the Santa Clara, Calif., location “a natural fit” for the cloud and managed hosting complex, because the area is crammed with high-tech providers and big cloud customers.

OpSource is upping its game in the cloud, and last March it added advanced networking and security features to its public cloud.

Three months later, the company was acquired by Dimension Data, a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Holdings. OpSource, with its Infrastructure-as-a-Service offerings and ancillary services, subsequently became a focal point for DiData’s cloud computing business.

Cloud providers and other hosting companies need to field multiple data centers to provide high availability and cut latency times for big customers. As a result, many field data centers on the East and West Coasts. OpSource already has data centers in California, Virginia, the U.K. and India.

OpSource customers include Nimsoft, CA, Astoria Software, SAP, General Mills, BMC and Mattel. Informatica came aboard as a SaaS customer last week.
