SecurStore Leverages OpenStack and Rackspace Cloud Builders for Carbon Emission Free Cloud Storage
OpenStack is a massively scalable, open source cloud operating system that currently powers the world’s leading clouds. It is an open source community backed by over 75 participating organisations across the globe, many of which are contributing development resources, building products with or are deploying on the open source platform. OpenStack was purposely built to give enterprises control and flexibility by enabling a choice of virtualisation platforms and offering powerful administrative controls. 

SecurStore is committed to staying ahead of the cloud trend by constantly evaluating its underlying technology and when relevant, employing the latest cloud initiatives to guarantee its clients complete cloud solutions. OpenStack is one such market advancement that demonstrates SecurStore’s innovation in technology and desire to keep ahead of the trend.

Furthermore, the company is equally conscious of its impact on the local environment and differs from other cloud providers in the way it employs green technology to ensure carbon emission free cloud storage. Its data centres are hydro powered to minimise the effect data storage has on the local ecosystem.

Jim Curry, General Manager of Rackspace Cloud Builders, said, “OpenStack is a powerful and flexible platform being deployed by leading enterprises and cloud technology providers like SecurStore to store and analyse business-critical data. By choosing the open standard cloud platform with support from Rackspace Cloud Builders, SecurStore can offer its customers a cost-effective and massively scalable storage solution compatible with the world’s leading clouds.”

Alexander Eiríksson, Chief Operating Office at SecurStore, followed, “OpenStack is perfect for our mission – offering enterprises secure, market leading cloud solutions that are serviced by green technology. Our clients not only boast reductions in their carbon impact through our hydro powered data centres, but they also know they have full business continuity in place. We’re excited to be working with Rackspace Cloud Builders because it matches our outlook on cloud development with its unique platform design.”

SecurStore’s cloud storage is certified by the British Standards Institute for ISO 27001 and fully accredited by ANAB.
