Internap’s OpenStack public cloud offering AgileCLOUD is now available from the New York metro area, the company announced Tuesday, just three months after AgileCLOUD’s last expansion. AgileCLOUD was launched to general availability in 2014, and Internap’s Seacacus, NJ data center is its fourth location worldwide.

AgileCLOUD expanded to Amsterdam in November, just a year after Internap began offering it in beta from the original Dallas location. The other AgileCLOUD footprint is in Montreal.

The Seacacus data center was opened in early 2014 and Internap offers its full range of infrastructure services from it. Internap says customers can maximize performance, efficiency, and control of different applications and workloads by linking AgileCLOUD seamlessly with bare-metal instances, colocation and managed hosting environments within the Seacacus facility and other AgileCLOUD locations.

“As enterprises increasingly adopt OpenStack for private clouds, they require public cloud platforms that provide the same level of interoperability as well as the performance and reliability needed to deploy their mission-critical applications at scale,” said Satish Hemachandran, senior vice president and general manager, cloud and hosting, at Internap. “Every aspect of Internap’s OpenStack-powered AgileCLOUD is optimized for performance – from dedicated compute CPU options to all-SSD storage, route-optimized networking and powerful management tools – and the continued expansion of our footprint means even better reach and faster application performance for customers.”

The Seacacus data center, which houses the latest expansion of AgileCLOUD, has just completed Phase 2. A company blog post says the modular build up of the facility contributes to the differentiation of Internap products by catering to high density power needs.

A report on the OpenStack market published in August suggested it would be worth $1.7 billion by 2016, so Internap’s aggressive geographical expansion is not surprising.
