Recently I wrote about the OnApp Federation, and how this new 'AirBnB of cloud' is going to turn the market on its head.
I'm not sure if it came across in the article, but I'm pretty excited about it :] This time, I'd like talk about one of the reasons why: transparency.

I can’t believe that we’re actually doing it. I’ve been working on this project for what seems like forever, but now it’s real, it’s happening. And it will change how our industry works.
Yes, I am talking about the OnApp Federation. With OnApp, you now have feature parity, more scale and more geographical reach than the megahosters - AWS, Azure & Google. We’ve turned the market upside down, totally eliminated the capital and scale advantages of the megahosters, and empowered other cloud providers to fight back.
Give me 3 minutes of your time and I'll try to explain :]
Where were you when the cloud revolution started? Lots of people joined us at WHD 2015 in Germany... check out the photos after the jump!
Cloud Evangelist, OnApp
There are many definitions of “hybrid” in the hosting industry. Public and private cloud. Onsite and offsite servers. Disk and solid state SANs… and I’m not going to talk about any of them.
Instead I’d like to explore a different take on "hybrid", and look at what it means at the service level. At how cloud providers are using a hybrid of different hosting technologies to win new kinds of business, and meet a wider range customer application requirements than ever before. Hybrid gives service providers the ability to be as bespoke as their customers need them to be.
How long does it take to build your own cloud - a week? A day? An hour? With OnApp, less time than you think...
In this video, Paul Morris uses the power of timelapse to install an OnApp cloud in less time than it takes to cook breakfast. The video is only two minutes long, but keep an eye on the real-time clock: we get to a working OnApp control panel in a little over ten minutes...
