Flexiant and UShareSoft Partner for Self Service Provisioning of Cloud Resources and Applications

Partnership will enable cloud service providers to offer customers "ready-to-run" applications or the ability to create bespoke software solutions

London, UK and Grenoble, France - 19 March 2013 - Flexiant and UShareSoft today announced a partnership to provide cloud service providers with a way to quickly create and manage applications and associated cloud resources by integrating the UForge cloud software factory with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator. The partnership will offer joint customers the benefits of 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 (VMs). Customers can then publish their templates directly to the Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator image library ready for self-service provisioning. Additionally, Bento Box technology within Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator allows users to pick and choose from these templates to build bespoke, multi-VM software solutions.

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

"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," said James Weir, CTO and Co-Founder, UShareSoft. "By integrating UForge with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, we are offering services providers a way to quickly ramp simple or complex applications to their cloud."

Join Flexiant and UShareSoft for a forthcoming webinar on 25 April 2013 to better understand how cloud service providers can differentiate with new value-added services that offer end users on-demand application delivery and provisioning and remove the complexity of cloud application deployments. https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/195203769
