‘Cloud in a Box’ solution offers trendsetting cloud management technology combined with the platform of choice for service providers
London, UK and St Albans, UK – 25 June 2013 – Flexiant and Boston Limited today announced a partnership to provide a ‘cloud in a box’ solution to the market. As a preferred distribution partner for Supermicro, Boston combines Flexiant’s trendsetting and innovative cloud management solution, Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, to offer service providers a ‘cloud in a box’ solution to kick start their cloud business.
George Knox, CEO, Flexiant, said, “Cloud service providers must identify ways to differentiate in the marketplace, least they become a commodity service. Our joint ‘cloud in a box’ offer with Boston gives these service providers and hosters the flexibility to get to market quickly and test and develop new products and services that meet the needs of their customers.”
Flexiant’s cloud management expertise has enabled the all-in-one cloud solution that is easy to deploy and yet is highly configurable for each customer. Flexiant is rapidly deployed on Boston’s servers for customers to buy cloud services in the shortest possible time. Using the cloud orchestration software for on-demand, fully automated provisioning of cloud services has allowed customers to concentrate on higher margin activities and to deal pro-actively with more complex issues. With Flexiant, users can provision, de-provision, start and stop their own servers directly through their own management interface.
“For Boston, the development and deployment of cutting-edge technology has always been the priority. So when it came to finding a cloud management and orchestration software partner we wanted to work with a company that match our technical expertise and share Boston’s vision towards providing leading IT solutions,” said Manoj Nayee, MD, Boston Limited. “The Flexiant platform is one of the world’s most advanced cloud management platforms, renowned as a proven, credible and visionary alternative to the cost of developing an in-house cloud computing platform. It enables service providers and hosting companies to compete in the cloud computing virtualization sector on a level playing field with global market leaders who have proprietary, rapid-provisioning infrastructures.”
The ‘cloud in a box’ solution also boasts the ability to offer customers a ready-made testing facility in Interxion’s UK Cloud TestLab. Customers benefit from the ability to deploy a Supermicro/Flexiant ‘cloud in a box’ solution and test and develop cloud services at high speed with best-in-class performance guarantees.
