Cloud HPT, a new entrant to the Middle East’s cloud hosting market located in Dubai, the UAE, has selected Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator to underpin its new cloud services line of business. The cloud orchestrating solution would enable Cloud HPT to deliver a marketable solution in just 48 hours.
Cloud HPT has invested heavily in its cloud hosting platform which it calls Cloud High Performance Technology (HPT). The Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform is built using the latest technologies from Cisco, NetApp, VMware and Microsoft to ensure high availability and resilience for the company’s partners and customers.
To differentiate themselves from other cloud hosting service providers in the region, Cloud HPT required an easily deployable and adaptable cloud orchestration solution with self-service portal capabilities for customers to buy resources as required. When evaluating Flexiant, Cloud HPT was impressed with its experience in helping service providers offer IaaS capabilities and tools to differentiate. It was especially impressed with the speed to market available with such a robust, proven, scalable, and functional solution that comes “out-the-box”.
“Flexiant’s ability to stand up cloud services in less than a week for other customers was part of why we selected the solution,” said Dominic Docherty, CEO, Cloud HPT. “Flexiant was deployed in only two days which was really impressive. Using Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, we can now offer a true pay-as-you-go cloud to our customers and also automate much of this process saving us time and money.”
Cloud HPT launched its cloud hosting services in Dubai in March and has also agreed a reseller agreement with BiosMe, a systems integrator based in the UAE. BiosME is a Cisco Gold Partner and a certified VMware vCloud Datacenter provider of virtual datacenters hosted in the public cloud.
