Growth in Cloud Service Provider Market Drives Flexiant Adoption

Extended support for HostBill/WHMCS and Flexiant's plugin technology drives innovation to arm service providers to compete

WHD.global, Germany and London, UK - 1 April 2014 - Flexiant today announced significant adoption of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator by service providers globally. With new customers in North America, South America, Africa, across Europe and Asia, Flexiant has more than tripled order intake over the last year.

Flexiant today also announced new integration modules offering complete server creation and management within the HostBill and WHMCS control panels. HostBill and WHMCS customers will not need to learn a new system just to create, start or simply stop a server, helping to save these customers time. Service providers can take advantage of the known benefits of HostBill and WHMCS with respect to billing, automation and customer management alongside the capability to build and deploy a flexible IaaS solution easily and quickly, thanks to the deep integration with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator.

The Company has also announced strategic partnerships to offer service providers a complete cloud solution based on various hardware and software technologies. Most recently, Flexiant and Parallels integrated technologies to offer easy access to a broader choice of cloud management platforms and virtualization technologies. The integrated Parallels and Flexiant solution gives hosting companies, service providers and telcos the unique ability to rapidly design and launch highly differentiated commercial IaaS and other related cloud services in days or weeks rather than months and years. Parallels is also now a global reseller of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator.

Another partnership includes Flexiant's work with Arrow ECS UK (Arrow) to deliver a complete solution of software and hardware to any service provider wishing to launch cloud services, in days. Working together, Arrow and Flexiant now offer a combination of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, the industry trendsetting cloud management software that has been validated on IBM Flex System.

Flexiant is additionally a certified technology partner in Dell's Technology Partner Program. By combining Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator with Dell PowerEdge C Servers, service providers have a complete cloud solution that includes a full virtual infrastructure for public cloud.

For the second year in a row, Flexiant has achieved the highest product innovation score among 10 vendors evaluated by Info-Tech Research Group's Vendor Landscape: Cloud Management Platforms and was awarded the Value Award. Evaluated competitors include Abiquo, CA Technologies, Citrix, Eucalyptus, Flexiant, InContinuum, Microsoft, OpenStack, Virtustream and VMware. Flexiant maintained the highest Info-Tech Value ScoreTM of the vendor group scoring 100, well above the average score of 36.

George Knox, CEO, Flexiant said, "We have experienced tremendous growth over the last year made possible by the strength of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator to arm service providers to complete. One of our key areas of investment was our plugin technology that enables service providers to customize their cloud. This has helped fuel the speed of integration with partners and innovative cloud solution providers."

Flexiant plugins capability enables service providers to offer bespoke services. Plugins are software components, separate from the base software itself, that can enhance the functionality or generally customize a service provider's platform. Plugins can be implemented without requiring the complexity, time and resource implications of lengthy development and testing. No other cloud orchestration solution on the market provides the level of extensibility of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator.

Knox continued, "We arm service providers with a platform to turn innovative ideas into revenue generating services quickly and easily. With Flexiant you can generate more revenue and accelerate growth, get ahead on the cloud battleground to compete more effectively by developing your own unique services to differentiate and lead the market through innovation."
