Flexiant and Nutanix Form Technology Partnership to Offer European Service Providers Comprehensive SAN-Free Cloud Solutions

Service providers benefit from Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator operating on Nutanix's simplified compute and storage infrastructure appliance

London, UK - 20 August 2012 - Flexiant and Nutanix today announced that European service providers will now benefit from a plug and play cloud orchestration and virtualised solution.

Flexiant is a leading European provider of cloud orchestration software for on-demand, fully automated provisioning of cloud services. Nutanix's innovative solution collapses the conventional two-tiered datacenter design (Storage & Compute) down to one single scalable appliance, delivering the world's first flash accelerated 2U datacenter, capable of hosting hundreds of virtualized workloads without the need for a SAN. The Flexiant/Nutanix partnership enables service providers to benefit from a simple and innovative solution at a low cost entry point that can scale to growing business requirements.

Jim Foley, SVP Market Development, Flexiant said, "Service providers need the ability to rapidly construct, deliver and manage a diverse range of cloud services. These services need to be differentiated and deliver competitive advantage. By combining Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator and the Nutanix appliances we are making it possible for service providers to achieve their objectives faster, with greater simplicity and at a significantly reduced cost than other solutions in the market."

Flexiant software removes the complexity of tasks such as constructing, orchestrating, metering and billing of cloud services. Nutanix removes the complexity of deploying, managing and scaling the underlying hardware, while removing the headache and cost of managing complex SAN and NAS storage.

Foley continued, "By forming this technology partnership we will enable service providers to deploy a hosted solution, quickly, with the required computing power and storage, business agility, freedom and flexibility to scale, deploy and configure cloud services. All this is done with a level of simplicity and cost-effectiveness not previously available."

Alan Campbell, Sales Director Nutanix EMEA said, "With many service providers looking to deploy cloud platforms efficiently and speedily, the combination of Nutanix Cluster and Flexiant Cloud Orchestration, we jointly provide a 'best-of-breed' solution. Following the launch of Nutanix EMEA, we have received considerable interest from the service provider market due to our linear, predictable and scalable building block approach that helps address the investment challenges many organisations face with traditional architectures."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

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...
