Interxion, a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data centre services has chosen Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator as a partner to power its UK Cloud TestLab, a turnkey cloud hosting test environment enabling service providers and system integrators to test and develop cloud services at high speed and with best-in-class performance guarantees.
Recognising the potential of cloud computing to disrupt the service provider market, Interxion, whose customers include names such as HP, NASDAQ OMX, bwin and Qbrick needed a high-performance test environment in which its service provider customers could try out their new cloud applications prior to taking them to market. After looking at a number of different cloud software solutions, Interxion chose Flexiant's software as a partner to orchestrate the provisioning of cloud services in its Cloud TestLab.
"With Flexiant's software we have been able to build an innovative cloud test environment for our customers and prospects,” comments Richard Warner, UK Marketing Manager at Interxion. "It handles everything all in one package, from the delivery of the service right down to the billing of the customer. Crucially, Flexiant's software enables our customers to try out their new cloud applications quickly and easily, which is the critical factor for attracting new users to the Cloud TestLab and encouraging service providers to experiment with the cloud.”
George Knox, CEO of Flexiant says "We are proud to be partnering with Interxion for their Cloud TestLab as it gives service providers the opportunity to dip their toe into the cloud and look to ways of expanding their business during this disruptive time. As more and more companies look towards a cloud model first for their IT needs, service providers have to change very fast. Service providers must evolve beyond traditional hosters to develop their own differentiated cloud offerings, or risk becoming irrelevant. The Interxion Cloud TestLab is the perfect place for them to develop and perfect their new cloud offerings prior to launch.”
Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator V2.0 enables service providers to quickly deploy, scale and manage all aspects of a cloud computing infrastructure, from physical to virtual resources. With low-cost-to-acquire software and a proven heritage in both the service provider industry and the cloud orchestration space, Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator delivers a proven alternative to an in-house development that will accelerate the time to revenue for both service providers and their customers.
