Flexiant, an international provider of cloud orchestration software to the global service provider market, has added IT service provider Skyliance Networks Limited (Skyliance) to its client base. The Hong Kong-based company has selected Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator to transition its managed Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) to a cloud hosting environment.
Already an established service provider in Hong Kong, Skyliance selected Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator to help it develop new revenue opportunities via the cloud and deliver cloud services quickly and at scale. The appointment marks Flexiant’s first customer in Hong Kong.
“Opting to deploy a new technology like cloud orchestration has been a big strategic decision for us,” said Wilson Lo, managing director, Skyliance. “Cloud is a growing market in this region and while we recognized the opportunities available, we knew we had to act fast. But above all we had to make certain that our chosen cloud orchestration solution would provide us with the support to do this at scale, and with ease.”
Application blueprint technology
Using Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, Skyliance will now offer customers highly differentiated public IaaS cloud hosting services via a self-service control panel with extensive white-labeling and customization capabilities. Using these capabilities, Skyliance plans to also deploy a reseller approach to the market to profit from additional revenue streams.
Skyliance would also benefit from Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator’s billing capabilities including Pay As You Go (PAYG). By offering customers an alternative approach to flat-rate fees, Skyliance has a competitive edge over other service providers in the region helping the company capture more market, more quickly. Furthermore, the service provider will take advantage of Flexiant’s application blueprint technology, Bento Boxes, which contain all the key information to successfully build and deploy applications in the cloud.
“Flexiant became the obvious choice when we were able to experience the solution in action, ourselves,” Wilson Lo added. “Its customization, white-labeling and hypervisor agnostic capabilities were compatible with our key requirements allowing us to deploy a different and extremely competitive product in our market.”
