Abiquo, the most advanced cloud software platform for enterprise and service providers, today announces a new deal with Exponential-e, one of the UK's most innovative technology enablers. Exponential-e has selected the Abiquo cloud platform to enable the infrastructure management and self-service interface of its Virtual Datacentre (VDC) solution, offering on-demand cloud service to its enterprise customers.
The Abiquo cloud management platform can integrate with any infrastructure and supports all hypervisors. Exponential-e has integrated the platform to create virtual datacentres that enable Exponential-e’s business customers to manage their cloud assets including infrastructure and applications.
Lee Wade, CEO, Exponential-e: "Our cloud solutions are unique in that they are underpinned and supported by our own 100GigE carrier-class network that offers superior design and agility to our end-users. Further investment in the Abiquo cloud portal complements our cloud solutions and will provide our customers true control of their cloud assets - infrastructure and applications. It is this approach, combined with our end-to-end solution SLA that differentiates Exponential-e in the cloud services marketplace."
Exponential-e's Head of Cloud Operations, Dominic Anschutz adds: "We looked at several cloud estate portals for the launch of our cloud portfolio and Abiquo is a world-class leader in delivering virtualisation portals and Exponential-e has selected only best in class providers to deliver its virtual datacentre (VDC) service. This will be the front end to our customers enabling them to self-manage their VDC and will be tightly integrated into our billing platform to ensure we can deliver enterprise VDC on a PAYG model. Due to Abiquo's best in class functionality, usability, reporting capability, and ease of use our decision was easy to make."
Abiquo CEO, Jim Darragh comments: “This deal with Exponential-e is a great example of how our software makes sense to service providers and enterprises to quickly deliver self-service cloud using the infrastructure already in place. Our platform is designed to enable businesses to manage complex data centre infrastructure from multiple vendors and hypervisors through a simple, easy to use platform which is the same interface for opening up service availability of the cloud stack to end users. We allow IT admins to control where infrastructure is, who is using it, how much is in use, billing and resourcing, without them having to break a sweat and this will help Exponential-e to deliver its VDC solution in a short space of time.”
Jim Darragh of Abiquo and Dominic Anschutz of Exponential-e will be speaking at Cloud Expo, which takes place in National Hall Olympia on January 29th – 30th 2013.
