Outscale is a recently-formed provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) and low-latency infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) over the cloud. The company was formed by industry experts Laurent Seror and David Gillard, who each have over 13 years of experience in Web hosting. They both founded Agarik, a critical Web hoster, which was bought by hardware giant Bull in 2006. The French duo wanted to use their experience to enable customers to reinvent their business models and take advantage of service flexibility, high performance, and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) and carbon footprints provided by cloud-based services. Determined to find the best technology for Outscale, they chose Cisco Unified Computing System powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor L5640.
“We were targeting performance, cost, and carbon footprint,” explained Laurent Seror, CEO of Outscale. “All these criteria came together in the Cisco Unified Computing System and the Intel Xeon processor L5640.”
