Managed Service Provider Week in Review: Cloudyn, Exorprise, dock10

By Laura Stotler

The news in the managed services space this week was as diversified as the market itself. Headlines were certainly heavily tipped toward cloud services and infrastructure, with some interesting new research findings as well.

Cloudyn, a provider of cloud administrative services, closed on a $4 million Series A funding round this week. The company specializes in helping customers monitor and optimize cloud usage across a variety of infrastructure providers. The company supports AWS and Google Cloud but is interested in expanding to work with VMware and Microsoft Azure.

In other spending news, IDC Government Insights released a new report showing that U.S. Federal Government spending on cloud services comprised around five percent of total IT spending. This year’s spending on cloud services was higher than anticipated, with a projected $3 billion due to be shelled out by the end of the fiscal year. And IDC predicts that number will rise to $3.4 billion next year.

Application performance management and monitoring solutions provider Exorprise also had an interesting announcement this week. The company, which focuses on solutions for business cloud applications and services, is offering a service for monitoring SaaS and IaaS applications. The Exorprise CloudReady platform lets users monitor the performance of just about any cloud application or service in real time from behind their firewall. That layer of security makes it easy to monitor specific performance levels of cloud infrastructure as resource usage fluctuates.

Media service provider dock10 has deployed the Avid Everywhere solution via Avid MediaCentral at post-production facility MediaCityUK. The solution enables dock10 to extend its reach through collaboration and communication among geographically dispersed teams. Workflows are based on the Avid MediaCentral Platform, which provides a variety of production and editing tools. Avid Everywhere offers centralized workflow management via cloud-based media production, making it a valuable tool for service providers like dock10, whose customers include the BBC and independent studios.
