Flexiant today announced that it will provide a ‘cloud in a box’ solution to the market in partnership with Boston Limited, a preferred distribution partner for Supermicro.
– George Knox, CEO, Flexiant.
The news comes a month after the selection of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator by ALVEA Services for its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution, ALVEA Infrastructure.
With ‘cloud in a box’ offered on Supermicro Servers, cloud service providers and web hosters can get the hardware and cloud management software to deploy cloud services immediately.
This gives them the flexibility to get to market quickly, and test and develop new products and services that meet the needs of their customers.
The new solution is easy to deploy and configurable for each customer.
Customers can use the cloud orchestration software for on-demand, fully automated provisioning of cloud services and therefore concentrate on higher margin activities and to deal pro-actively with more complex issues.
With Flexiant, users can provision, de-provision, start and stop their own servers directly through their own management interface and allow their customers to buy cloud services in the shortest possible time.
Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator was very recently named as a Cool Vendor by Gartner in it’s Cloud Management Report for 2013.
‘Cloud in a box’ solution offers customers a ready-made testing facility in Interxion’s UK Cloud TestLab. Customers hence can deploy a Supermicro/Flexiant ‘cloud in a box’ solution and test and develop cloud services at high speed with best-in-class performance guarantees.
“For Boston, the development and deployment of cutting-edge technology has always been the priority. So when it came to finding a cloud management and orchestration software partner we wanted to work with a company that match our technical expertise and share Boston’s vision towards providing leading IT solutions,” said Manoj Nayee, MD, Boston Limited.
“The Flexiant platform is one of the world’s most advanced cloud management platforms, renowned as a proven, credible and visionary alternative to the cost of developing an in-house cloud computing platform. It enables service providers and hosting companies to compete in the cloud computing virtualization sector on a level playing field with global market leaders who have proprietary, rapid-provisioning infrastructures,” he added.
“Cloud service providers must identify ways to differentiate in the marketplace, lest they become a commodity service,” said George Knox, CEO, Flexiant.
“Our joint ‘cloud in a box’ offer with Boston gives these service providers and hosters the flexibility to get to market quickly and test and develop new products and services that meet the needs of their customers,” he added.
