“NHN Cloud already has the flexibility to respond to public, private, and hybrid cloud based on OpenStack. NHN Cloud has been working with OpenStack for the longest and the best in this field.”

Dong-hoon Kim, CEO of NHN Cloud, explained that OpenStack technology as the competitiveness of NHN Cloud at the cloud conference 'NHN Cloud Make IT' on the 28th.

NHN Cloud is OpenStack-based integrated cloud service company representing South Korea. They have their own OpenStack technology, so they have strengths in compatibility with domestic clouds such as KT Cloud and global clouds such as AWS and MS.

CEO Kim said, “In the public cloud market, compatibility is essential if multi-cloud is used, and OpenStack is compatible with overseas vendors.”

He continued, “OpenStack technology is easy to catch up with the latest trends because of their flexibility and scalability, and various companies such as KT Cloud and Kakao Enterprise are introducing OpenStack. If OpenStack technology was not reliable, many companies would not have adopted OpenStack technology.”

CEO Kim explained that NHN Cloud has a technological advancement over their competitors in OpenStack technology.

CEO Kim said, “OpenStack is a cloud technology in the form of infrastructure as a service (IaaS) that anyone can use, but it is not easy to handle with a technology that combines server, network, and storage. NHN Cloud also took more than 4 years to stabilize their OpenStack-based service.”

He also explained that OpenStack also fits the NHN Cloud vertical strategy. NHN Cloud provides cloud services specialized for each industry. They are using vertical strategies on games, payments, and e-commerce.

They are also creating an open source and cloud-native ecosystem. NHN Cloud plans to strengthen their technological competitiveness by participating in global technology-leading foundations such as the OpenInfra Foundation, the Linux Foundation, and Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

We will build an educational institution as local research and development(R&D) center and also to nurture local talents and create quality jobs.”
