LONDON – OnApp has launched version v6.0 of the OnApp cloud management platform. More information and demos are available at https://onapp.com/v6.

OnApp v6.0 includes the new version of OnApp Accelerator, which delivers up to a 100% performance improvement for websites hosted in OnApp clouds. It also introduces Buckets, a combined Role-Based Access Control and billing engine that gives cloud service providers total flexibility in how they package and price their cloud services; new Software-Defined Networking capabilities; enhanced cloud workload import capabilities; enhanced notifications and cloud automation features; support for VMware vCenter; and improved export for usage data, to simplify integration with Business and Operational Support Systems.


“OnApp makes cloud easy for Telcos, MSPs and other service providers who have struggled to make cloud profitable – either because of the cost and complexity of building and managing their own open source clouds, or because of the commercial limitations of reselling hyperscale clouds like AWS,” said Tim Meredith, OnApp’s Chief Commercial Officer. “The new version of OnApp makes it even easier to build a cloud with OnApp, integrate cloud billing models with your existing billing systems and processes, and get to market fast with your own accelerated cloud services.”

OnApp v6.0 includes the new version of OnApp’s patented website acceleration technology. OnApp Accelerator delivers up to a 100% performance improvement for websites hosted in OnApp clouds, by automatically optimizing web content and distributing it to 20 locations on a global Content Delivery Network (CDN) managed by OnApp.

“We believe everyone should have great web performance – and with OnApp you get that for free,” said Ditlev Bredahl, OnApp CEO. “Our patented Accelerator technology makes websites up to twice as fast with zero effort. If your business depends on your website, you don’t need to know how to set up a CDN, and don’t have to pay extra for a CDN service – you just need to host your site with an OnApp cloud provider. OnApp Accelerator is a great value-add for service providers and helps make their customers’ e-commerce sites more profitable too. For customers who have more complex content delivery needs, like streaming video, we still offer a fully customizable CDN platform – but for the vast majority of website owners, Accelerator finally democratizes website performance.”

MONROE, La. – Enterprises need a secure, fast and easy way to connect their locations and data centers to cloud service providers to support their rapidly changing IT application and infrastructure demands. CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) today launched Cloud Connect Dynamic Connections, which provides enterprises with increased control over their networks and gives them the ability to easily self-provision connections on-demand through a secure portal or via API integration.

CenturyLink Cloud Connect Dynamic Connections enables real-time creation and deletion of private Ethernet connections to cloud service providers. Customers can now dynamically connect across hybrid cloud workloads including their private cloud and data center locations, as well as within a cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“CenturyLink can now provide on-demand, real-time network connections between enterprise locations, public data centers and cloud service providers across the globe,” said Paul Savill, senior vice president of core network and technology solutions at CenturyLink. “This also demonstrates how CenturyLink’s global network and hybrid cloud management solutions make the cloud ecosystem easier for enterprises to leverage. Our on-net customers can now enjoy a network experience that matches their cloud experience—wherever they operate.”

“Delivery of a traditional switched Ethernet circuit, from contract sign to turn up, averages close to 60 days for many carriers, making services such as CenturyLink’s Cloud Connect Dynamic Connections, which can turn up the same service in a matter of minutes, incredibly valuable,” said Fedor Smith, president of Atlantic-ACM. “The on-demand environment enabled by cloud services will no longer be shackled by the time restraints of traditional network implementation or limited to inter-data center connectivity.”

Key Facts:

CenturyLink Cloud Connect Dynamic Connections, part of the CenturyLink Cloud Connect portfolio, is available across thousands of locations in North America, Asia Pacific and Europe.
CenturyLink Cloud Connect Dynamic Connections is available on AWS, including AWS GovCloud (U.S.).
CenturyLink Cloud Connect Dynamic Connections is delivered over private MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 connections across CenturyLink’s redundant global fiber network using CenturyLink’s software defined networking (SDN) technology.
As a private Layer 2 network, the connection is inherently secure and minimizes exposure to external threats.
Billing works on a pay-as-you-go model. Every dynamic connection is on an hourly rate with no long-term contract and no early termination fees.1

PARIS – Acorus Networks, specialized in protecting enterprise and service providers’ network and web platform infrastructure from distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), is raising $6 million from Elaia Partners, Partech and Kima Ventures. This funding round will contribute to Acorus Networks’ mission to protect customers whose business activity relies on the Internet, in fields such as banking, e-commerce, gambling, government and healthcare.

According to IDC Research’s recent US DDoS Prevention Survey, more than 50% of IT security decision makers admit that their organization had been the victim of DDoS attacks 10 times in the past year. Of these attacks, more than 40% lasted longer than 10 hours. Now that DDoS-as-a-service (DaaS) is available at low prices, it is easier than ever for anyone malicious to launch a DDoS attack, multiplying the risk faced by companies.


In 2014, Benjamin Schilz and Raphael Maunier decided to launch Acorus Networks to address this growing phenomenon with a unique approach. Both co-founders have proven track records: Benjamin is a telecommunications engineer with a background in cloud security and web hosting and an entrepreneur at heart. Raphael is one of the co-founders of France-IX, the premier internet peering service provider in France, with 20 years of experience in the telecom and network industries. Their vision is to develop an innovative & customizable solution to address complex, sophisticated DDoS issues for enterprise and service provider companies alike. Acorus Networks has built a large-scale, agile and robust infrastructure enabling different and complementary methods of both web and network DDoS detection and mitigation that guarantees high availability and performance.

“As an online retailer, the availability of our website is critical. In the event of unavailability, every minute results in a loss of revenue and a deterioration of our brand image. Acorus Networks’ detection and filtering systems operate at the front end of our infrastructures in order to permanently protect us against denial of service,” said Romain Broussard, IT Director at CDiscount.com.

“High-traffic websites, e-sport and live events are recurring targets for DDoS attacks. The flexibility of the Acorus Networks solution and its ability to adapt to our specific needs, as well as the recognized expertise of the team, are at the origin of our choice. “said David Bordas, Hosting and Network Infrastructure Manager at Webedia.

“The DDoS protection and mitigation market continues to grow by more than 20% each year, there is no slowing down of these malicious attacks that hurt customers in indirect or indirect cost. Since Acorus’ solution is designed to answer specific industry needs, it has already met with success among leading brands. The Acorus Networks team’s unparalleled experience in understanding system availability needs and their unique solution has helped them land some of the largest online brands, we are proud to be joining them on this journey.” said Reza Malekzadeh, General Partner at Partech.

“As cyberattacks grow (4000 attacks per day), so do cybersecurity business opportunities. We’ve known Acorus for some time, since they protected Scoop.it, a portfolio company, from a massive attack. I am impressed by their vision, their technology and the reputation the team has built. We are very proud and excited to be on board and confident that Acorus Networks is heading toward international success”, said Marc Rougier, Partner at Elaia Partners.

About Acorus Networks
Acorus Networks specializes in protecting enterprises from distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), a service especially important for companies whose business activity, data or image depends on the Internet.
