With new service, DreamHost lets developers dive into OpenStack AWS-style
After two years of testing with a select group of customers, DreamHost is finally ready to make its OpenStack-based cloud available to the broader public – but it’s still officially in beta with no time frame for launch. This presumably means there are still some hiccups to work out with the service, but that shouldn’t be too big of an issue for the audience that the New Dream Network, LLC subsidiary is targeting.
DreamCompute, as the new offering is known, is positioned as something more akin to Amazon Web Services in terms of accessibility and pricing than other OpenStack-based services such as Hewlett-Packard Co.’s recently expanded Helion platform. That strategic decision reflects the fact that DreamHost is not trying to court rise-averse CIOs but rather open-source-loving developers, who, up until now, haven’t had many options for getting their hands on the next big thing in cloud computing without buying their own hardware.
