Add Your Comments

Cloud management solutions provider Flexiant announced on Tuesday has integrated SolidFire’s all-SSD storage system with its flagship cloud orchestration software, Cloud Orchestrator.

The new integration capabilities comes a couple months after Flexiant first released version 3 of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator.

Using this newly integrated platform, customers can now build differentiated cloud services to improve the performance and overall experience of service providers’ customers, which could lead to increased sales and customer growth.

This new integration will enable customers to “granularly provision storage performance and capacity across the SolidFire cluster on a per volume basis from within Flexiant’s Cloud Orchestrator console,” according to the press release.

With the companies’ integrated capabilities, customers can more quickly deploy their private or public cloud infrastructure services, while maintain consistent performance, provisioning flexibility and management automation.

“SolidFire has addressed the problems of delivering predictable multi-tenant cloud storage in a way that existing storage systems cannot,” said Tony Lucas, product champion and founder of Flexiant. “The SolidFire / Flexiant integration gives customers the storage system to be a high-performance leader, and the orchestration software for on-demand, fully automated provisioning of cloud services. This combination will enable cloud services providers to gain a competitive business edge through differentiated service offerings.”

Lucas recently gave a demo of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator software, a platform for delivering infrastructure as a service, designed specifically around the needs and requirements of the hosting service provider.

He also presented a webinar in association with the WHIR where he discussed how to be competitive in a fast-changing market and how Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator V3 has been built incorporating the knowledge gained and lessons learned.

The partnership is a strong fit for both companies, given their similar approaches to delivering cloud services.

Through this integration, Flexiant and SolidFire combine best of breed products designed to solve cloud infrastructure challenges in a single solution.
