I thank the jury for the recognition of our product. In the near future, we are planning to release updates to our Compute, Storage, and Networking services, as well as add new features and services, such as Social Logins (Google & Facebook), DBaaS (DataBase as a Service), Managed Block Storage (a new way to provide data storage to allocate disks for virtual machines), Networking API (a network stack based on both OVN and other providers), Storage 2.0 (a more convenient interface for working with S3), and Machine Learning Instances with improved support for ML virtual machines.

The cloud platform by IBA Group is a truly hybrid open source cloud that provides centralized services and dedicated locations with the ICDC platform deployed on the customer hardware. Therefore, it is possible to aggregate public and private locations owned by an individual customer under a single cloud panel.

When making the decision, the jury of the Best in Cloud 2023 took into account the benefits of implementing the ICDC Open Source Cloud Platform, including:

  1. Cost reduction through flexible resource configuration
