The OnApp Federation

170+ compute & CDN locations, available on demand

The OnApp Federation is a revolution in cloud for service providers. It's a global pool of cloud infrastructure that you can use, on demand, as a seamless extension of your local cloud.

Instant scale & reach for your cloud

What do you do when a customer needs more scale than you have available, or wants to host applications and content where you don't have local datacenters? 

Using the OnApp Federation you can expand your cloud on demand, give customers the scale and reach they need, and stop churn to other providers.  

You get instant access to 170+ compute and CDN locations, across 113 cities in 43 countries, which you can use on demand and just pay as you go. 

Location, location, location

Location is everything in the cloud. Deploying applications close to end users is the key to performance. Having multiple clouds on tap is the key to scale. Being able to control where data is hosted is the key to compliance.

Your cloud customers can do that the hard way, with a patchwork of different vendors. Or they can use your local cloud, extended with the OnApp Federation, to host their apps globally - with one UI, one account, and one place to go for support.
