ALVEA Infrastructure Services Selects Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator

Flexiant enables ALVEA Services to rapidly deploy, brandable cloud-based computing solutions to the channel

London, UK - 22 May 2013 - Flexiant, a leading international provider of cloud management software, today announced that ALVEA Services has selected Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator for its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution, ALVEA Infrastructure. Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator enables ALVEA Infrastructure to deliver a simple, branded user interface for instant provisioning of IT security and cloud services with a pay-as-you-go model.

ALVEA Services is a managed security and cloud-based computing solutions provider that has designed ALVEA Infrastructure for organizations that need to vary their computing capabilities at a moment's notice to match the changing needs of their business. The service is delivered and supported by an established global network of some 2,500 IT and security resellers. As a cloud service provider, ALVEA Services is able to provide its channel partners with an IaaS service they are able to white label themselves or offer branded as part of the ALVEA Services portfolio.

Neil Gardner, Proposition Manager, ALVEA Services said, "Choosing the right cloud management software was business critical and of significant strategic importance for ALVEA Services. We invested substantial time, energy and effort in looking at the various players in the market. No other company was able to demonstrate the proven heritage and capability that is essential for ALVEA Services. Furthermore, no other company had Flexiant's extensive "out of the box" capability to build out our reseller offering, which is clearly central to our go-to-market strategy."

Flexiant's cloud management and orchestration software is providing ALVEA Services with on-demand, fully automated provisioning of cloud services. This includes Flexiant's user interface, comprehensive billing, extensive white labeling and single pane of glass infrastructure control.

George Knox, CEO, Flexiant said, "With Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, ALVEA Services has the opportunity to capitalize on the current market, but also to future proof its commercial offering. Its customers want transparency, and with Flexiant, they have it. This makes ALVEA Services more attractive to resellers."

The ALVEA Services business model is based on allowing resellers to set their own pricing structure while only paying for what they are delivering to customers. The Flexiant billing and metering capability allows granular reporting on what has been used and when. Depending on the requirements of the VAR, each billing model can be independently set to meet specific needs. Gardner continued, "With Flexiant, VARs can easily buy and sell the IT security and cloud services they need to deliver their customers, while also wrapping additional value into the offering."

Central to ALVEA Services is the ability for resellers to apply their own look and feel to the products they deliver to customers. Flexiant enables the user interface to be white labeled for any VARs requiring this capability.

Gardner said, "By selecting Flexiant to provide us with the cloud provisioning software for ALVEA Infrastructure everyone in our network can make more money. Resellers are able to be more commercially attractive, offer new products and services while we are using a public cloud to stay competitive in the market."

ALVEA Services will continue to build additional product offers for its channel partners as well as enabling these resellers to add their own product offering to the network. "With Flexiant, we're able to look at new business opportunities, presenting further revenue generating activity for our partners' businesses as well as our own," concluded Gardner.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
