UK-based cloud platform software company OnApp has launched version 6.0 of its OnApp cloud management platform for telcos and MSPs.

OnApp 6.0 includes a new version of OnApp accelerator, which boasts an up to 100% performance improvement for websites hosted in OnApp clouds.

The new version also introduces buckets,  a combined role-based access control and billing engine designed to give cloud service providers flexibility in how they package and price cloud services.

Other features include new SDN capabilities, enhanced cloud workload import, notification and automation features and support for the VMware vCenter suite.

“OnApp makes cloud easy for telcos, MSPs and other service providers who have struggled to make cloud profitable - either because of the cost and complexity of building and managing their own open source clouds, or because of the commercial limitations of reselling hyperscale clouds like AWS," OnApp chief commercial officer Tim Meredith said.

“The new version of OnApp makes it even easier to build a cloud with OnApp, integrate cloud billing models with your existing billing systems and processes, and get to market fast with your own accelerated cloud services."
