Learn about BootStack hosted cloud

Your cloud, your site, our expertise

Predictable costs

Your cloud is built to your specifications, on dedicated hardware and priced in a predictable fashion. You don’t have to hire a team of experts or commit upfront investment.

Model your workloads with Juju

Connect and deploy your business and software workloads using our award-winning service modelling tool, Juju.

Easy network function virtualisation

Develop and test your VNFs before deploying them into a production OpenStack cloud.

Cloud native storage

Embed the proven software‐defined storage (SDS) technologies like Ceph, NexentaEdge, Swift and SwiftStack.

Guaranteed availability and quality

Our expertise, based on the management of hundreds of clouds, is backed up by a clear SLA and regular independent audits for quality assurance.

Complete control and no vendor lock-in

Your team can access every tool and every machine — and we can transfer operations to you on demand.

Get a BootStack managed cloud in three easy steps

  1. We build your cloud

    Together, we design your cloud to the required size and specifications — on your site, in your datacentre or hosted with one of our partners.

  2. We operate your cloud

    Our OpenStack experts take full responsibility for the management, monitoring and 24x7 availability of your new cloud. The hardware and software are covered by proactive maintenance too.

  3. We transfer control

    If you decide to take the cloud in-house, we will train your team on its operations to ensure a smooth handover.

BootStack can be customised to your requirements

Hosted BootStack

We have chosen QTS and eShelter as a hosted option for BootStack worldwide, providing the highest performing dedicated cloud infrastructure available. Their customisation options enable OpenStack to be used for provisioning bare metal as well as virtual machines from datacentres around the world.

BootStack Direct

Whereas a Hosted BootStack leaves the operations to us, BootStack Direct guarantees the operation of the cloud goes directly to you, including training and support for your staff. We will get your OpenStack cloud up and running in days, preparing your team to become OpenStack operations experts.
