If you are in search of a cloud management solution, you need to assess Flexiant. Of course, we would say that, but look what Info-Tech Research Group (Info-Tech) has to say. In the second consecutive ‘Vendor Landscape: Cloud Management Platforms’, Flexiant has achieved the highest product innovation score among ten vendors (Abiquo, CA Technologies, Citrix, Eucalyptus, Flexiant, InContinuum, Microsoft, OpenStack, Virtustream and VMware) and was recipient of the Value Award.
The Info-Tech report says, “Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator is a complete solution, offering significant flexibility and ease-of-use at a very reasonable cost…With roots in the service provider market, Flexiant targets service providers in Europe, and has exceptional dashboard customization, and integrated billing capabilities.”
Flexiant maintained the highest Info-Tech Value Score™ of the vendor group scoring 100, well above the average score of 36. Vendors were indexed against Flexiant’s performance to provide a complete, relative view of their product offerings. Flexiant was rated exemplary as a product in usability, affordability and architecture.
What is the Value Score? It indexes vendors’ product offering and business strength relative to their price point. Vendors that score high offer more bang-for-the-buck than average vendor, while the inverse is true for those that score lower.
We are so proud of this recognition particularly as we’ve already addressed issues of reach and channel from the report. Last week we announced that Parallels is now a global reseller of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator. Parallels has an international sales organization and over 10,000 service provider partners. This global reseller agreement represents a massive increase in market reach.
John Sloan, Lead Consulting Analyst said in a blog about the Parallels announcement, “Flexiant is the relative David to the VMware Goliath. Geographic reach has been noted as a key challenge for Flexiant but the company has been aggressively pursuing wider markets this year. Since the report was released, Flexiant has overcome that challenge. Flexiant is broadening its global reach with the announcement that Parallels is now a global reseller of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator. The agreement gives Flexiant an opportunity to expand its North American presence while it gives Parallels competitive ammunition against VMware, which offers service providers and enterprises cloud orchestration and management with vCloud.”
