Alternatively, you can upload your own images to Dynamic Cloud and use them there as private images to create VMs. By the way, we deliberately opted for OpenStack and thus for open source technology - this avoids the risk of vendor lock-in from the user's point of view right from the start.

  • Rollouts within minutes, not days

With the help of infrastructure patterns based on OpenStack, entire application landscapes can be automatically provisioned as integrated environments in CANCOM IaaS - Dynamic Cloud. Both the infrastructure and the VMs as well as the configurations of the environment are described in a template and created together, at the push of a button. The virtualized representation shortens rollout processes that previously took several days to just a few minutes: Perfectly suited for cloud-native applications, training, development and test systems or other applications with requirements for a highly automated, integrated and flexible platform.
