This business model guides our development efforts towards maximising end-user experience and satisfaction that benefits everyone involved. This model also helps to keep down the end-user pricing as the service provider has no license cost for resources not in actual use.
The actual price is defined by the service provider and can be considerably lower than global providers (more efficiency and lower bandwidth costs).
This enables quick expansions and upgrades to the infrastructure over time while avoiding human errors and overhead. In the case of hardware failure the end-user resources are automatically migrated to other available hypervisors while physical hardware gets replaced to provide an interruption free maintenance and excellent reliability.
New hypervisors are automatically deployed and included to the cluster when servers are added to the network.
By users we do not only mean the end-user but also service managers, administrators, support personnel and business owners. Each user has a different need that we aim to satisfy whether it’s spinning up resources, observing the hardware utilisation or monitoring business metrics.
This principle is the driving force behind our design decisions and an important component in planning the future roadmap.
Data protection is becoming increasingly important for business and is becoming heavily regulated by governments. We see this as an important driver of the future cloud market in favour of local providers.
Add to that the locally preferred payment methods and top it off with high quality support in the local timezone and local language by local people who know and understand the end-user, you get a fairly strong offering.
We see this ecosystem becoming a big part of Warren and we have many important features in the roadmap that will add enormous value to the network and end-users. The principle behind Warren is to provide a coherent platform for all local service providers to ease individual efforts building limited versions of the same thing.
