Service providers have to compete with cloud giants like Amazon, Google and Microsoft to provide high availability, scalable and customizable infrastructures and all the while offering competitive costs. These challenges are not only slowing the delivery of excellent service, but they are also the main reasons for service providers to miss out on the opportunity to generate new revenue streams through the cloud. Now though, service providers no longer need to compete with cloud giants. Instead, they can embrace the public clouds while still maximizing opportunities through multi-cloud solutions.
Multi-cloud lifecycle management can be a complex business. Unless service providers have the right tools in place to ensure consistency and compatibility across multiple applications, cloud provider APIs, security profiles or storage environments for example.
Turning Challenges Into Opportunities
With multi-cloud solutions, now service providers can look to new opportunities and we believe it lies in hosting next generation applications. Our latest solution, Flexiant Concerto, helps service providers and DevOps serve this market.
