Infrastructure-as-a-service. Our team makes it easy for
organizations to build and manage scale out web
applications, migrate existing applications, build Big Data
solutions and much, much more. We take pride in offering
simplified pricing for our Compute, Virtual Private Cloud
(VPC), Block Storage (Volumes), and Bulk Storage (Object
Storage) with a utility billing model with no hidden costs.
RELIABLE AS FSCK
Built with redundancy and automatic healing, any server,
network or object can be migrated away from unhealthy
physical servers to happy ones. This allows for nearly 100%
availability with continuous upgrades and service work
behind the scenes.
Instant, On-demand, Pay as you go
No contracts, no minimums, no base account fees. Use all,
some, or just one service! Our infrastructure-as-a-service
is at your finger tips, available 24/7 through the dashboard

Leveraging the latest in server technology from Tier 1
vendors, our cloud services provide the horsepower required
for the most resource intensive jobs
Choose from one of our 15+ Linux and Windows images, or
bring your own!
Elastic & Scalable
Access your cloud servers on demand, 24x7 and pay for them
only when you use them.
Cloud-A cloud servers provide powerful, elastic & scalable
compute resources all managed from an easy-to-use web-based
dashboard, Our cloud servers provide the power and
flexibility to handle virtually any workflows, providing to
spin up resources to handle bigger jobs faster, and scale
down when when demand for compute is less.
Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)
Private by Default
When your account is created, you’re automatically generated
a basic, sane & secure, Private Network. All of your network
traffic travels through your own Private Network, and you
aren’t forced to share your tubes with anyone.
Cloud-A’s VPC Networking infrastructure allows you to manage
every piece of your private network; from Routers and
Subnets to Security Groups, and DHCP Agents to Load
Balancers — It’s all available and ready to scale out
Separate & Secure
You are provided with encrypted & encapsulated routing that
no other users, or even your own routers, can access without
explicitly connecting them. With VPC, even internet
connectivity is optional; VPN or internal traffic only if
Easy to Configure
Using the Network Overview dashboard, you gain a high level
picture of even the most complicated network configurations
to help you architect or troubleshoot network connectivity
Virtual Private Cloud Networking Overview Cloud-A’s Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Networking allows you to create on demand virtual network appliances for your entire stack within our public cloud environment. This allows for complete isolation from all other customer data using the infrastructure. The isolation between private networks is provided through encrypted traffic tunnels per tenant, and completely private IP subnets.
Standard with all VMs:
VPC marries your traditional public infrastructure with virtually private networking to deliver complete environmental control, without all the metal.
Best of all, the basic Cloud-A Private Network functionality comes pre-bundled with your account.
Cloud-A’s VPC Load Balancers are able to manage online traffic by spreading traffic across multiple servers. Load Balancers can help optimize your workload performance and prevent overload to enable you build a robust and performant system for your users.
SSD Block Storage (Volumes)
Lightning Fast SSDs
Our SSD volumes provide industry leading IOPS, exceeding the
performance of global Cloud leaders.
Create, attach, snapshot, detach volumes to any of your
cloud servers to provide instantly storage scalability
Persistent and Portable
You own your data. Delete a server and attach its storage
volume to another cloud server.
Our Volume storage provides on-demand, self service access to Block Storage resources, allowing you to scale up or down lightning fast, SSD backed storage on-demand, directly attached to your cloud servers.
How they work:
This software defined storage service virtualizes pools of block storage devices and provides Cloud-A users with a powerful API to request and consume those storage resources, making them perfectly ready for automation and scaling.
Bulk Storage (Object Storage)
The power of Bulk Storage lies in it’s flexibility. Enabling
server backups, media storage, desktop cloud sync, high
traffic downloads and whatever else you cook up.
Reliable as FSCK
Your files are triplicated across nodes in the cluster! Not
only is this extra-reliable, but makes access faster as
Reliable as FSCK
You can scale your requirements “to the moon!”, and we can
support you. Our massive swift cluster is waiting to gobble
up your data, whether it’s in the GBs or TBs.
Simple and Scalable Cloud Storage:
Simple and Scalable Cloud Storage Bulk Storage provides you with a near-limitless object storage service for unstructured data. Upload files and multimedia, then serve them to your customers. As many as you like and as large as you wish, priced simply.
We maintain 100% OpenStack Swift compatible APIs, so you can use any OpenStack Swift compatible tools with our Bulk Storage service. Interfacing with the API gives you the greatest control over your data.
Secure by Default:
All of your container data is locked down, and you can explicitly control what data is public, as well as generate temporary (expiring) URLs, enable Cross Origin Resource Sharing to securely serve content, and create secure upload forms to give your users the ability to upload directly to Bulk Storage.
Third Part Tool Support:
You can use a number of tools to connect your computer directly to Bulk Storage to upload or manage files from your local system for backups, disaster recovery, data archival and Big Data Repositories.
blkstr.ca Content Delivery Network
No Place Like 127.0.0.1
Data is cached at multiple POPs across the world, and
traffic is automatically directed to the closest one.
Bringing your data closer reduces network latency, making
your content available faster!
Easy as 1 ...
As easy as clicking your mouse. You can then start accessing
your data through blkstr.ca, our CDN specific domain
name to integrate with existing plugins or your application.
Flexin' Big Pipes
By leveraging CDN you increase your effective bandwidth
capacity by over 1000% over direct access to the Bulk
A Living Network
It's aliiiive! Our next-gen CDN technology continuously
expands or contracts across the world to scale and deliver
the highest quality service.
Our Cloud CDN technology was built from the ground up to deliver your content
most efficiently from anywhere. Bulk Storage content served through the
blkstr.ca network is propogated intelligently to edge nodes for blazing
fast downloads of media, large static files, or dynamic content.
Dynamic Traffic Direction:
Incoming requests for your static files are analyzed and routed to
the nearest physical CDN point of presence. Leveraging a network of
partners, we are already across the globe, and we can accomodate
requirements to deliver local CDN nodes for unprecidented enterprise
speed and integration.
Integrated directly into our storage platform, there is zero
additional configuration beyond simply toggling on access to your
container contents. Create, update, and delete content per your
normal workflow using the tools you're already used to using.
Easy for Developers:
Direct integration or plugins exist for frameworks such as
Wordpress, Drupal, Django, and Ruby on Rails (to name a few)
to handle remote object / file storage. It's as easy as copying and
pasting your blkstr.ca CDN url, and you hit the ground running.
