Flexiant Announces Cloud Orchestrator

Service providers looking to leverage their current investments to offer cloud services can now add Flexiant’s Cloud Orchestrator to their infrastructure to create public or private cloud services. 

Developing a fast, scalable cloud infrastructure can take time and investment. Some providers that acquired companies this year are still struggling to go to market and meet the demands of their customers that want to quickly take advantage of cloud benefits. Flexiant’s Cloud Orchestrator provides the cloud expertise in an easy-to-consume platform for do it yourself Foundation Edition or customizable Service Provider Edition.

Cloud Orchestrator offers end-to-end infrastructure software and services for hosting providers, datacenter owners, telecommunications operators and enterprises. The company’s offer is virtualization and platform agnostic, fully modular and API driven, enabling service providers to capitalize on existing hardware and virtualization investments to quickly get into the cloud.

The company offers two versions of Cloud Orchestrator: Foundation and Service Provider Edition (for comparison and install information go to Features include:
  • Full cloud IaaS stack
  • Control panels for administrators, operator and customer
  • Billing and product offering for unit or rate billing, invoicing, multicurrency and credit card integration
  • API access for customer, administrator or operator
  • Multihypervisor support

According to Tony Lucas, founder of Flexiant and George Knox, CEO, Cloud Orchestrator “handles the challenges providers are facing today in trying to meet the demands of their customers for cloud offers.”  I believe providers have choices. Do you build the capabilities like France Telecom did in 2006 or acquire as the companies that purchased OpSource, Savvis and Terramark did? Or do you partner? Cloud Orchestrator addresses partnering issues such as technology, new offers and platforms, integration and time to market challenges with a pay as you grow or rate card billing model to meet the investment needs of a new and growing market."
