Companies Announce Strategic Partnership at IBM InterConnect
Las Vegas, Nevada — InContinuum Software and Cloudsoft Corporation today announced their strategic partnership and their first joint offering – a fully-automated multi-tenant Container Service solution for any hybrid cloud environment at IBM InterConnect in Las Vegas.
The firms have been working together in stealth mode for the past few months to combine the best of both worlds – InContinuum’s CloudController® Cloud Automation Engine; the Cloudsoft Application Management Platform (AMP), whose blueprints actuate live models for standardized application deployment according to business policies; and the Cloudsoft Container Service, built on open source Apache licensed project Clocker. The result is a fully-automated multi-tenant delivery platform for configuration, deployment and management of application containers on all major on-premise hypervisor platforms and Public Cloud services.
“In Cloudsoft we have found a perfect complement to InContinuum. Our companies have the same spirit and motivation in the cloud management space. More importantly though, our technologies match-up great next to each other to offer organizations a complete toolset to automate every aspect of their cloud on-boarding at the infrastructure, container and application levels. Together we are pushing the innovation envelope, giving our target customers – cloud service providers and enterprises – everything they require to run what they want, where they want, how they want,” said Phillip Hyde, CEO of InContinuum Software.
“Our joint vision for the next phase of cloud computing is centered on the controlled migration of application workloads. This is a cloud-centric process, not a traditional virtualization-centric workload migration (legacy lift-and-shift). Using application workloads as the managed entity instead of the VM infrastructure, unlocks creative state-of-the-technology solutions for operation and management of those entities.”
The combination of CloudController and AMP gives customers the power to 100% automate the creation and deployment of application and services anywhere in a hybrid cloud. Management gets predictable, auditable, visibility of customer deployments across any hybrid cloud, including infrastructure and application views using a single data model, single service catalog and a Single-Pane-of-Glass interface.
“CloudController is the perfect foil for Cloudsoft AMP and InContinuum is a natural partner given our shared understanding of the Enterprise and Cloud Service Provider markets,” said Duncan Johnston-Watt, CEO, Cloudsoft.
“Integrating with CloudController delivers the best of both worlds – comprehensive cloud management from InContinuum coupled with rock solid application management from us. We are excited to launch our Container Service delivered by CloudController as a joint offering at IBM InterConnect. We will be demonstrating this at the InterConnect EXPO (stand #558) where we will be targeting IBM Blue Box Cloud and SoftLayer as well as other public clouds.”
