NEC targets hosting providers

By

NEC's Cloud Platform for IaaS has been released in the broader Asia Pacific region following an initial introduction in Japan.

The NEC Cloud Platform for IaaS is the first integrated platform for this market, according to NEC Asia Pacific vice president Tatsunori Shibata (pictured).

It is based on NEC's Express5800 server family, the OpenStack (cloud computing platform) and Ceph (object storage) software, and a unified dashboard to control the entire system.

Noting that service providers have different requirements to the general market, Mr Shibata said NEC Cloud Platform for IaaS uses the company's microservers based on the Atom C2000 processor.

46 of these microservers can be installed in a single 2U enclosure, for a maximum of 736 servers in 16 enclosures in one rack frame, making the system "one of the highest density servers on the market," he said.

Each node consumes a maximum of 35W, and costs $3 per month.

NEC has been using the product in one of its data centres in Japan since January, Mr Shibata said.
