Service Providers can now rapidly deliver cloud infrastructure with a unique orchestration and virtualization solution.
London, UK – June 3, 2014 – Flexiant today announced the general availability of the integrated Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator and Parallels Cloud Server virtualization. No other cloud orchestration and management provider has integrated with container-based operating system virtualization, making this a truly unique opportunity within the industry. With the Flexiant and Parallels integrated solution, service providers and hosters can launch Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in days and capture a share of the rapidly growing cloud market.
Service providers wanting to take advantage of containers (instances of operating system virtualization), can use Parallels Cloud Server with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator to achieve two to three times the density of hypervisor virtualization. This enables service providers to offer several times as many virtual servers on the same node offering a lower cost per virtual server on burstable containers helping to improve efficiency, increase utilization of key assets and ultimately increasing profitability.
Jim Foley, SVP Market Development, Flexiant, “After announcing the integration plans between Parallels and Flexiant, the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Service providers and hosters want the benefits of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator for IaaS orchestration and application management while also running it on Parallels Cloud Server. Selecting this integrated offer gives service providers freedom to offer another hypervisor technology safe in the knowledge that their orchestration layer will support the IaaS business.”
John Zanni, CMO, Parallels, “Working with Flexiant is an industry first for us. Our customers want to benefit from the efficiency Parallels Cloud Server operating system virtualization offers, but they also want an IaaS orchestration that supports other virtualization technologies, if their customers require it. The Parallels partnership with Flexiant creates a unique opportunity for our customers who want to quickly launch an IaaS platform.”
Service providers struggling with virtual server capacity, the inability to support channel sales and with launching a cloud service can turn to Parallels and Flexiant to boost profitability by delivering up to three times as many virtual servers per physical node than a traditional hypervisor based model while improving performance. Service providers can easily get to market with expanded reach, scalability and simple cloud management using a cloud orchestration platform, uniquely integrated with container technology, to offer best of breed, comprehensive IaaS with maximum density. This gives service providers the ability to keep prices as competitive as possible when selling cloud servers.
