Canadian cloud solution provider selects Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator because of its billing flexibility, openness to support its business model and future product plans and vision
Alberta, Canada, London, UK – October 2, 2013 – FailProof Technology Inc., a cloud solutions provider offering cloud for MSP, VAR and IT professionals, today announced it selected Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator as the cloud management solution to power its FailProof-Cloud platform marketplace. Installed and running within three weeks and already serving cloud infrastructure, Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator was selected against other cloud management providers because of its extensive reseller, metering and billing, and cloud blueprint and ‘Bento Box’ capabilities.
FailProof Technology delivers cloud services that cater to the IT channel business, technology, budget and even legal requirements when a provider wants to deploy across geographies. Entirely channel centered, FailProof Technology selected its technology stack from the ground up with the ability to support this go-to-market strategy as a key functional requirement.
President of FailProof Technology, Akaid Diaz said, “Starting to build a cloud with a blank sheet of paper meant we were able to select only the best software and hardware on the market. Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator was the first selection we made because they understood our needs to deliver a channel model cloud solution for our partners. As we continued to select the products and storage for FailProof-Cloud, Flexiant’s support team was able to offer advice and support having deep knowledge of the service provider market.
Diaz continued, “Flexiant offered us the reseller capabilities we required to serve the MSP and VAR channel market. Not only that, but they gave us the billing flexibility to actually monetize our IaaS platform and bill accordingly. With no upfront capital, no complexity of infrastructure deployment and with an easy to use graphical interface, our MSPs and VARs partners can easily use our IaaS platform, powered by Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, to deploy resources when they need it.”
George Knox, CEO, Flexiant said, “FailProof Technology built its entire cloud offering off the back of Flexiant’s extensive service provider capabilities. This is testament to our mission to ensure every capability added to Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator is built with the needs of the service provider in mind so they can get the most out of our cloud management product. We truly understand the solutions that are needed to offer differentiated services to the market and FailProof Technology is one company doing exactly that.”
FailProof Technology will also use Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator’s Bento Box technology to offer customers pre-packaged, configured and sophisticated cloud blueprints in a simple, ready to use way. With an easy drag and drop user interface, FailProof Technology and its customers can build, deploy and share cloud blueprints graphically.
