Info-Tech Research Group has recognised Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator by awarding it with its Cloud Management Trendsetter Award among all of the cloud management vendors in its report “Vendor Landscape: Cloud Management Solutions”. Described by Info-Tech Research Group as exemplary, Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator achieved the highest available ratings in areas such as usability, affordability, architecture and strategy, Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator gained the highest product rating out of all other vendors in this report.
Ranked against other vendors such as Citrix, VMware, Abiquo, Nimbula, Eucalyptus, Openstack and others, Flexiant was deemed ahead of the curve in advanced features. In the report, Info-Tech Research Group makes the following observation:
“Flexiant’s unique customization and whitelabeling, integrated billing, and its ability to support multiple hypervisors, make it a standout solution that’s ahead of the curve in advanced features.”
Flexiant was recognised as the solution of choice for service providers or indeed anyone, such as hosting companies, which want to build a cloud services business rather than build an internally focused enterprise cloud. Flexiant believes the report clearly demonstrates that Flexiant has an innovative lead in the market. We believe this lead will increase further when Flexiant launches version 3.0 of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator later this month.
Citrix scored marginally higher in their Value Index score with a rating of 100; however Flexiant was ranked only two points behind at 98. However, Citrix’s CloudPlatform requires the purchase of CloudPortal Business Manager to enable visibility to end users around costs. In contrast Flexiant allows service providers to offer a true cloud platform that can scale with their business without additional unnecessary investments. The next closest vendor scored 39 points behind Flexiant!
The Value Score indexes each vendor’s product offering and business strength relative to their price point. It does not indicate vendor ranking. Vendors that score high offer more bang-for-the-buck than the average vendor, while the inverse is true for those that score lower.
Why did Flexiant not achieve the highest score overall? Quite simply, we dropped some marks with respect to geographical reach. When the analysis was conducted, Flexiant was purely European centric. This is no longer true. Flexiant now has a presence, customers and prospects across North America, Canada and South America.
No matter where you are in the world, the most innovative, exemplary and trendsetting cloud management solution is available to you. We will help you quickly build a cloud services business today that customers will love.
