phoenixNAP Partners with Pliops to Deliver Accelerated Cloud Services

phoenixNAP’s Bare Metal Cloud Now Includes Pliops Extreme Data Processor; Substantially Boosts Performance, Reliability and Scalability for Data-Intensive Workloads

PHOENIX, June 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- phoenixNAP® – a global IT services provider offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialized Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions – today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Pliops, a leading provider of data processors for cloud and enterprise data centers. Through this collaboration, phoenixNAP delivers on-demand cloud services that meet the needs of performance-sensitive users. The breakthrough Pliops Extreme Data Processor (XDP) is now available as-a-service, hosted by phoenixNAP on its Bare Metal Cloud (BMC) platform.

The integration of Pliops XDP and BMC allows for automated provisioning of Pliops-powered instances in minutes. This makes it possible for organizations to access advanced compute resources that multiply the scalability of workloads and data capacity while simplifying infrastructure management tasks.

“Our technology collaborations continue to deliver unique, workload-optimized solutions to meet sophisticated IT needs,” said Ron Cadwell, CEO of phoenixNAP. “The Pliops XDP extends the storage capabilities of BMC, delivering advanced CPU efficiency and enabling accelerated processing of data-intensive applications and workloads. The automated provisioning model of BMC makes it possible for Pliops-powered instances to be deployed in a matter of minutes, which also helps speed up development and release cycles. Development teams and others seeking these benefits can now take advantage of this advanced technology without having to change their software.”

BMC is a cloud-native ready IaaS platform that facilitates on-demand provisioning of physical machines via an API or Infrastructure as Code tools. Fully automated and highly customizable, BMC makes it easy to provision and manage non-virtualized single-tenant servers optimized for running DevOps workloads. The addition of Pliops XDP to BMC eliminates major storage infrastructure inefficiencies and significantly accelerates performance, enabling data center infrastructure to scale more efficiently and cost-effectively. By solving current data efficiency challenges, the XDP expands the potential of existing architectures, allowing cloud architects and DevOps engineers to scale their compute and storage resources more easily and provide their applications with advanced processing capabilities.

“By delivering Pliops XDP on an as-a-service model, we enable organizations to have easier access to advanced data and storage processing capabilities,” said Uri Beitler, Pliops founder and CEO. “The combination of phoenixNAP’s BMC and Pliops XDP enables the most demanding applications to achieve the highest performance, reliability and storage capacity at the lowest possible cost.”

“Through the strategic integration with Pliops, BMC now offers new performance and storage optimization capabilities,” said Ian McClarty, president of phoenixNAP. “Pre-installed on selected BMC instances, Pliops XDP frees the CPU, accelerates storage performance, and increases usable storage capacity to enable more efficient data processing for data-intensive applications. Organizations can leverage it to scale workloads, get more from their SSD storage, and manage it more efficiently. We are excited to work with Pliops to expand BMC capabilities with this innovative functionality and enable advanced CPU optimization for databases, analytics and machine learning workloads.”
