Flexiant and UShareSoft Partner to Offer Cloud Management Platform

By Erin Harrison

One of the major challenges for cloud service providers (CSP) is to differentiate themselves with new value-added services that offer end users on-demand application delivery and provisioning, and remove the complexity of cloud application deployments.

To reap the full benefits of cloud, automating the way software is delivered to the cloud is extremely important, according to James Weir, CTO and cofounder of UShareSoft.

With this in mind, UShareSoft has teamed up with Flexiant to offer cloud service providers a way to quickly create and manage applications and associated cloud resources, by integrating the UForge cloud software factory with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator.

“To scale their cloud business, service providers must enable their partners and customers to onboard software and applications as quickly and as easily as possible,” Weir said in a statement. “By integrating UForge with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, we are offering services providers a way to quickly ramp simple or complex applications to their cloud.”

The partnership will offer joint customers on-demand, fully automated provisioning of cloud services, software and applications.

Using UForge, cloud service providers or end users can automate the creation and maintenance of full software stacks (OS, middleware and applications) as cloud server templates and virtual machines. Customers can then publish their templates directly to the Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator image library, ready for self-service provisioning.

In addition, Bento Box technology within Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator allows users to pick and choose from these templates to build bespoke, multi-VM software solutions, according to Tony Lucas, product champion and founder of Flexiant.

“The goal for most cloud service providers is to not only deliver the infrastructure, but the applications,” Lucas said. “By offering our Bento Box technology in partnership with UShareSoft technology, we are able to deliver a truly powerful application solution.”

Earlier this year, Flexiant and SolidFire announced the creation of a combined solution that integrates the latter’s all-SSD storage system with the former’s Cloud Orchestrator, MSP Today reported.

This combined solution is designed to allow customers to build cloud service offerings that are both high in quality, and cost effective.

The pairing of SolidFire’s storage performance and quality of service with Flexiant’s reliable, feature-rich management software offers service providers ready-to-use cloud infrastructure.
