Flexiant’s rapid time to market capabilities allows Cloud HPT to stand up Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator to capture new customers and drive a completely new line of revenue in two days
Dubai, United Arab Emirates and London, UK – 30 April 2014 – Time to market is critical for service providers wanting to competitively launch cloud services. For Cloud HPT, selecting Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator to underpin its new cloud services line of business, delivered a marketable solution in just 48 hours.
Located in the UAE, Cloud HPT is a new entrant to the Middle East’s cloud-based IT and business solutions marketplace delivering cloud services to partners and customers. Cloud HPT aims to integrate with or completely remove the need to have a ‘comms room’ and ITC infrastructure allowing a switch in IT payment models from Capital Expense (Capex) to Operational Expense (Opex). Cloud HPT has invested heavily in a cloud platform, which it calls its Cloud High Performance Technology (HPT). It is built using the latest technologies from Cisco, NetApp, VMware and Microsoft to ensure high availability and resilience for our partners and customers.
Cloud HPT undertook a project to differentiate themselves from other service providers in the region. To achieve this, it required an easily deployable and adaptable cloud orchestration solution with self-service portal capabilities for customers to buy resources as required. When evaluating Flexiant, Cloud HPT was impressed with its experience in helping service providers offer IaaS capabilities and tools to differentiate. It was especially impressed with the speed to market available with such a robust, proven, scalable, and functional solution that comes “out-the-box”.
Dominic Docherty, CEO, Cloud HPT said, “Flexiant’s ability to stand up cloud services in less than a week for other customers was part of why we selected the solution. Flexiant was deployed in only two days, which was really impressive. Using Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, we can now offer a true pay as you go cloud to our customers and also automate much of this process saving us time and money.”
George Knox, CEO, Flexiant said, “Speed is of the essence, but you also need to deliver a cloud service business that can meet strategic objectives both for you and your customers. By selecting Flexiant, Cloud HPT was able to get to market in record time with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator to get ahead on the cloud battleground. With Flexiant, Cloud HPT is armed with a solution that they are already using to deliver their own unique services to differentiate and lead through innovation to generate more revenue and accelerate growth.”
Cloud HPT launched its cloud services in Dubai in March and has also agreed a reseller agreement with BiosMe. BiosME is a systems and cloud system integrated based in the UAE, a Cisco Gold Partner and a certified VMware vCloud® Datacenter provider of virtual datacenters hosted in the public cloud.
