Flexiant updates its cloud orchestration software
Vendor claims software will let cloud providers make more margins and profit.
Cloud orchestration software firm Flexiant has launched the latest version of its Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator software it said would enable service providers to increase margins and profits from cloud provision.
The latest version of the product (formerly called Extility) includes a number of new and enhanced features including; multiple cluster support across multiple locations and geographies, as well as multiple hypervisor (KVM, Xen 3, Xen 4, VMware and Hyper V) support, all managed from a single pane of glass portal. It also features multiple-level granular metering and billing to support complex business models that include multiple resellers, enterprises, business units and consumers.
It also sports fine-grained, role based access controls, by user and group and a revised and expanded API to ease the process of integration and extensibility as well as integration with an extended ecosystem of partner organisations to develop and deploy “highly differentiated services.”
George Knox, Flexiant’s chief executive said that the growth of managed service providers is “only increasing.”
“Rather than expanding an internal IT department, managed services are where companies are spending their budget to reap the rewards of extended expertise,” he said. “Now is the time for these service providers to differentiate and by using cloud orchestration software, they can do just that without significant capital outlay.”
Analysts said that for service providers to not have cloud infrastructure delivery capabilities is to be “left out an increasingly strategic and fast growing market."
“The challenge for service providers is how to bring a mature, proven and feature-rich product to market without investing countless resources building from the ground up,” Said Philbert Shih, managing director of Structure Research. "This is where third party software packages – particularly those built for the needs and requirements of infrastructure service providers – can be of great benefit. They can shorten time to market, save on development resources, minimise risk and ensure quality."
