Telefonica makes cloud more accessible

Telefónica Digital is bolstering its global public cloud service with a toolkit that offers users greater control and provisioning of virtual servers.

Dubbed ‘Instant Servers’, which sounds like something created by adding a spoonful of granules to a mug of hot water, the service is based on technology from Joyent, which allows customers to configure the size of their virtual server in terms of RAM memory, CPU and hard drive as well as choose the Operating System (SmartOS, Ubuntu, CentOS, Windows Server, Fedora and Debian) the virtual server runs on.
