Moving to cloud… when the platform was right
With its dedicated servers, colocation, IP transit, and DDoS services, Sharktech had established a reputation as a reliable, affordable hosting services provider with close-touch support.
Sharktech customers tend to be small and medium-sized businesses, and the company has many VPN and game service provider clients across the U.S., Europe, and China. In 2019, Sharktech made the decision to expand with its own cloud services. Cloud has obviously been around for much longer, so why did the company wait so long?
Sharktech was founded in 2003 and has grown from its headquarters in Las Vegas to offer a range of hosting services from data centers in Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, and Amsterdam.
A better alternative to hyper-scale cloud
For Sharktech, another part of the attraction of Virtuozzo was that it is based on OpenStack, the industry-standard open-source cloud framework. This enables Sharktech to offer cloud services that are open and customer-friendly, as well as being much more cost-effective.
Open is the new lock-in
Having an open-source cloud solution is incredibly important for Sharktech’s customers, and for Sharktech. It may seem counter-intuitive, but selling the cloud with an open platform actually helps keep customers loyal to Sharktech’s service.
Sharktech is now rolling out its Virtuozzo cloud to its data centers in Chicago and Amsterdam.
