GoDaddy just announced the global availability of its new Cloud Servers product.

"Designed to help the underserved market of individual developers, tech entrepreneurs and IT professionals, the scalable Cloud platform offers a pay as you go utility billing model to meet the needs of a unique customer base: developers who build solutions for small businesses worldwide," a spokesperson for the company tells WebProNews.

"Providing a distinct competitive advantage against hosting-only providers, Cloud Servers: is integrated with a suite of GoDaddy products, including domain names; will be powered by a partnership with Bitnami, meaning one-click optimized installation for app solutions like WordPress, Drupal, Odoo and Magento; is built on OpenStack in line with GoDaddy’s commitment to open source technology; [and] offers the highest level of stability and security," the spokesperson adds.

Cloud Servers customers get full access to various public facing APIs. You can automatically backup your data without downtime to keep user data and configuration covered. They're guaranteeing 99.9% uptime.

User servers can be kept in constant contact with each other with private networking maintaining secure communication and protocols, GodDaddy says. You can assign permanent IPs and multiple IP addresses to a single server with as many available as needed.

Supported distributions include: Ubuntu 14.04, CentOS 6 & 7, Fedora 23, Debian 8, FreeBSD, CoreOS and Arch Linux.

At launch, Cloud Servers are only in U.S. datacenters.
