The OnApp Federation

Add 170+ locations to your cloud, on demand

The OnApp Federation is a global network of wholesale clouds that you can use, on demand, to host workloads for your customers. Add new locations, more scale and different price/performance options to your cloud - or build an entirely virtual cloud hosting service.

OnApp Federation

Add scale & reach without CAPEX

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 cloud infrastructure?

Using the OnApp Federation, you can host them in 170+ compute and CDN locations on demand. You can extend your cloud without having to invest in new infrastructure, and without having to find partners in each region. Just spin up the capacity you need through your OnApp cloud control panel.

Location, location, location

OnApp Federation Choose virtual sever locationLocation 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.
