(The Hosting News) – OnApp has announced that 49 cloud providers have now signed up to provide compute cloud infrastructure on the OnApp Federation, the world’s biggest public cloud. The new members of the OnApp Federation will contribute more than 50 compute cloud locations in 30 countries, in addition to the 170+ CDN locations already available. The news extends the OnApp Federation’s lead as the most globally distributed, low-latency public cloud.
As a member of the OnApp Federation, each cloud provider can buy and sell cloud infrastructure through a wholesale, on demand marketplace. By buying infrastructure, providers can make global cloud locations available to their customers for application deployment, as a seamless part of their local cloud. The addition of new locations enables their customers to minimize latency for end users by hosting applications in their nearest city, and manage data sovereignty and compliance issues by controlling precisely which clouds data can, or cannot be hosted in.
