According to the latest report by GigaOm, GoDaddy is poised to release Data Center On Demand. One of the biggest domain registrar and web host company, GoDaddy flutters its wings to release its latest cloud computing service.
Data Center On Demand is expected to be out in the first week of July, however, its release will be limited. The full release will have to wait until the service’s infrastructure gets ready and complete.
The brochure received by GigaOm chalks out GoDaddy’s plan to release the computing service in three plans i.e. Economy, ultimate and deluxe. These plans will cost around $49.99 – $279.99 per month. The discounts are available on the prepaid service.
The service, as per the brochure, is perfect for medium to large businesses and web developers. This cloud computing service – that goes by the name of Data Center On Demand – however requires the services of IT companies that will provide it the much needed technical experience.
The economy plan comes with a server, 40GB storage, 1GB RAM and 100GB outbound bandwidth per month. The ultimate plan comes with an offer of six servers, out of which three go with 40GB storage and 1GB RAM and the remaining three go with 40GB space and 2GB RAM.
The report says that GoDaddy “uses Cloud.com’s CloudStack private-cloud software for the resource-orchestration layer.”
According to CRN, with Data Center On Demand, users will be able to create a virtual data center through more than one server. The service will provide them with cloud templates, load balancers and scalability.
Data Center On Demand is speculated to rival the popularity of Rackspace and Amazon clouds. GoDaddy has, thus far, maintained a silence about the service’s complete features.
