For users of over 150 million email accounts in nearly one hundred countries, atmail is the company hard at work behind the scenes making sure those emails get delivered and OpenStack is critical for that. Since 1998, atmail has provided email solutions for service providers (such as internet service providers (ISPs), hosted service provider (HSPs), telecoms, global corporations and government agencies in Australia and the US. Its infrastructure has gradually migrated from hardware to virtualized in various iterations. Currently more than 15% of atmail infrastructure is powered by OpenStack-powered DreamHost Cloud.
