Livingston, Scotland – 1 August 2012 – Flexiant, a leading European provider of cloud orchestration software for on-demand, fully automated provisioning of cloud services, today announced that Cloudwork, a Netherlands based provider of cloud solutions hardware and software, has partnered with Flexiant to offer business-oriented cloud infrastructures to its clients. By offering Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator 2.0, Cloudwork is able to help its customers focus on the front-end processes of selling, marketing and deploying new cloud services rather than continually battling with technical challenges.
Cloudwork initially selected Flexiant to solve a specific challenge faced by one of its managed hosting provider customers. The customer had developed a highly sophisticated and competitive cloud service back end, but was struggling to secure the customers it deserved because its front office processes were less optimised. The biggest challenge was the time it took to on-board new customers, which took up to 48 hours on average. Cloudwork needed a solution that could help it streamline its front-end processes and power up new customers much more quickly.

“Flexiant has enabled us to win new business. It’s as simple as that,” states Richard Parker, Market Development Director at ITEX. “Our offshore business customers are constantly looking to improve resource utilisation, increase automation and flexibility, and reduce the time required to roll out new business applications. With our new cloud services platform, they can do just that.”
“By deploying Flexiant, we have been able to transform our existing IT resources and data centres into a pool of infrastructure resources which can be allocated to clients in a matter of minutes, rather than weeks and months, continues Parker. “What’s more, as a cloud platform we can now deliver services far beyond our Channel Islands location to practically anywhere in the world, opening up a significant new opportunity for us.”

This will allow ITEX to expand, seek out new market opportunities and build an annuity-based revenue stream.”
