BootStack — your managed cloud
The BootStack service gives you an OpenStack private cloud, running on your hardware, in your choice of datacentre with Canonical responsible for design, deployment and availability. We’ll even train your team and, when it suits you, hand over operational control.
Our calculator can help you identify your potential return on investment by comparing the costs of a BootStack managed cloud against the staff costs of a self-built and managed cloud.
