Abiquo Enterprise Edition is gaining significant market traction, particularly among enterprises and hosting providers. A recent example is BlueFire, a leading managed and cloud IT provider and Dimension Data Group company, which selected Abiquo because of its unique combination of advanced functionality and usability.
BlueFire and Abiquo have entered into a development and innovation partnership, integrating the Abiquo Enterprise Cloud Management platform with BlueFire’s own IP to enable its hosted compute infrastructure-as-a-service private cloud solution. In conjunction with BlueFire’s strategic partners Cisco, NetApp and Citrix, this solution allows enterprise organizations to control infrastructure spanning compute, storage, networking and security. The solution is designed to provide single-pane-of-glass management of both on-premise client infrastructure and across infrastructure-as-a-service delivered from BlueFire datacenters to create a secure private cloud environment.
“We have extensively evaluated products from all the cloud management vendors over the last six months”, said Jason Serda, Managing Director and CIO of BlueFire, a leading hosting provider and Dimension Data Group company. “Abiquo’s solution was the clear winner, providing superior capabilities particularly for our enterprise customers. For example, our clients will be able to automate the provisioning of virtual infrastructure available across six of our primary datacenter facilities, including compute, memory, networking, security and storage. The combination of the Abiquo platform and IP developed in conjunction with our partners has enabled BlueFire to today provide a no compromise approach to give our customers complete flexibility to define their own environments – just like a physical datacenter, but without the need to maintain the infrastructure.”
