Ninefold, the Australian public cloud computing company, announced the launch of its self-serve cloud offering in the US, with the opening of an “Availability Zone” in California.
The expansion comes in response to demand from customers already utilising Ninefold’s virtual servers in Australia and wanting to extend the use for their clients operating in the US. The development means customers operating in the US can now enjoy the same low levels of latency experienced in Australia.
Ninefold customers will have the choice of locating their data in Ninefold’s Australian facilities or in Ninefold’s new US based facility.
Ninefold customers will manage all their Australian and US Availability Zones through the single Ninefold dashboard where they can manage virtual servers, load balancing and attached storage requirements.
The cloud computing company points to significant pent-up demand from existing customers and the larger Australian cloud community, who are keen to extend their influence to international markets.
