ChinaNetCloud: Bringing Amazon to the Orient
Since ancient times China has always been home to various innovations. From paper to the gun powder, the Chinese have constantly contributed to the evolution of civilization. Despite its long history of having an upper hand in most aspects of technology, inability to adapt to the IT innovations of the past decade is one Achilles heel that China constantly fails to overcome. Part of this can be attributed to the lack of credible providers of such technology in the country. Towards the end of the past decade the country was bereft of providers of managed services and cloud services. In 2008, industry veterans Steve Mushero, the then CTO of Todou and James Eron who built systems at Bearing Point set out to find a solution to this issue. The result of this venture led to the inception of China’s public cloud provider, ChinaNetCloud. The abundance of experienced professional system operations engineers in a country which was host to the largest and faster growing internet in the world, led the founders to further capitalize on their venture and serve China’s huge market. By 2009 ChinaNetCloud had also become the country’s first Internet Managed Service provider focused on helping internet in China to grow and prosper, providing reliability, performance, scale, security and savings.
One of ChinaNetCloud’s primary features are the Total Operating System which run on the Full Stack, from clouds to OS to services such as MySQL, Java, PHP, Nginx, HAProxy, Firewalls and more, up to overall system Reliability, Performance, Scale, Security, and Cost Savings which is quite uncommon among other MSPs in the region. This service rendered through these systems includes advanced Site Reliability Engineering, Security Operations Center, DBA support, security scanners, capacity planning, APM and RUM analysis, DDoS mitigation, load testing, and more. The company’s most noteworthy asset however is its full stack large-scale internet platform dubbed OpsStack which can integrate all parts of advanced operations.
The company has reached a level of technological excellence where it can be lauded as the only company in the world that can take over large multi hundred server systems without any info or support and fully manage it and even migrate without any downtime. In the years to come the company intends to expand its service capabilities through OpsStack, launch a Cloud Management System and also go for an IPO
