Managing your cloud resources requires sophisticated solutions targeted at telcos and service providers. But often these cloud management solutions are not fit for purpose for a commercial provider of cloud services.

The worst cloud billing pitfall you can make is clearly not understanding what your customers are using and therefore not billing correctly. Why offer a service after all if you cannot monetize it properly?

The latest release of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator comes complete with nifty Load Balancer features. There are two really useful functions I particularly like about this – the automatic geoDNS service and that the back-end servers need not be part of the Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator ecosystem. This is great for anyone wishing to exploit hybrid cloud technology. Today’s blog, I delve into the new load balancer features.
Service providers delivering cloud require a user-friendly solution to load balancing across their servers. At Flexiant, we continually aim to deliver against our service providers’ requirements, and so today we launch a fully integrated, multi-tenant Load Balancer as a Service.
Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator load balancers are deployed in redundant groups. These in turn can route traffic across backend servers according to various algorithms, such as round robin, or whichever server has the least number of connections on it.
