Cloudscene directory launched to public
Cloudscene, a directory for colocation data centres, cloud service providers and interconnected fabrics, is now available to the public.
The directory was established by Australian technology entrepreneur Bevan Slattery to improve industry transparency and consolidate the fragmented marketplace for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), colocation and other cloud solutions.
With more than 4700 data centres and 4200 cloud/internet service providers across 110 countries, Cloudscene offers a platform for service providers to be found and freely analysed by prospects and customers.
Slattery said, “It’s been evident for some time that the traditionally long and difficult buying process for data centre and enterprise cloud services was not going to change.
“It was out of frustration that the concept of Cloudscene was born. Having invested significantly on these services myself, it became obvious that there was an information gap that needed to be filled.”
Cloudscene is a comprehensive single resource, providing visibility of internet and cloud service providers within specific data centres.
“Prospective tenants or home buyers haven’t needed to visit individual websites of real estate agents to get listing information for over a decade. So why is the tech industry stuck in the past when it comes to enterprise IT services?” said Slattery.
Jason Bingham, chief operating officer at Cloudscene, said, “The primary goal of Cloudscene is to deliver reliable and accurate data to market. To achieve this, we invested in an in-house product development team and Australian-based data analysts to undertake the research, analysis and verification work.
“We have an extensive product roadmap in which Cloudscene will grow enormously. This is just the beginning,” he said.
Digital Realty, Telstra, VentraIP, EU Networks, Megaport, Vocus Communications, Epsilon, Superloop and NextDC are some of the service providers using Cloudscene.
