Cloud management software provider, Abiquo, has launched Abiquo anyCloud. The new solution is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) version of its established cloud management platform – a single portal from which users can manage and control their entire public cloud hosting infrastructure.
The new launch allows public cloud users to integrate and manage public cloud hosting services Amazon EC2 and Rackspace from a single console. With Abiquo anyCloud, users will have the freedom of public cloud with the management controls of private cloud. Rackspace is the first OpenStack implementation and further public cloud hosting integration is planned, with support for all major public clouds to be released in the coming months.
Abiquo anyCloud users can expect a continual addition of new features; in particular reporting and auditing capabilities which will allows users to monitor and control usage across their public cloud infrastructure.
Other features would include:
- Greater insight – Users are able to deploy and import Amazon instances to gain visibility of public cloud hosting environment.
- Workflow controls – Set email alerts and approval notifications for new deployments.
- Secure user access – Users can create multiple, secured user accounts in Abiquo anyCloud for a single Amazon account and create different roles and scopes for each user account.
- Business intelligence – Broad reporting tools and access to a full and informative audit trail.
Abiquo is privately held, and operates from headquarters in the UK with offices in Europe, and through its extensive global partner network.
