AppNexus and your Virtual Datacenter
The AppNexus Cloud
The AppNexus compute cloud differs from most other clouds because it isn't strictly "utility computing." We're not interested in just delivering raw computing the way an electricity company delivers electricity. Instead we designed our cloud to provide all the building blocks of a secure, customized virtual datacenter able to run stable, reliable, high-transaction and production-grade applications. These building blocks are instantly deployable via easy-to-use APIs so that our customers can have direct and immediate control over creating and modifying their infrastructure.
AppNexus focuses on top quality, up-to-date equipment; servers dedicated to individual customers; high availability via load balancing and multiple physical datacenters (currently one in Los Angeles, one in the New York Metro region, and one in Amsterdam); and the scalability of a virtualized infrastructure.
