Virtuozzo, a global provider of virtualization and hyperconverged software solutions, has announced the availability of its latest product, Virtuozzo Hybrid Cloud. Virtuozzo claims that its solution will enable Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Cloud Service Providers (CSP) to design, build and sell modern cloud services to their clients “quickly and more cost-effectively” than traditional hyperscalers.
As a hybrid cloud solution exclusively designed for MSPs and CSPs, Virtuozzo Hybrid Cloud offers Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Load-Balancer-as-a-Service (LBaaS), Storage-as-a-Service (SaaS), and other cloud services in multiple locations worldwide.
MSPs and CSPs can buy cloud resources directly from Virtuozzo by connecting any Open Stack compatible cloud management platform such as CloudBlue Connect, HostBill, WHMCS, Fleio, or from Virtuozzo Hybrid Cloud distributors.
“As the breadth of organizations seeking cloud solutions continues to grow, a gap in the skills necessary to navigate the complexities of the most advanced cloud platforms is a common limitation,” said Liam Eagle, Research Director, 451 Research, a part of S&P Global Market Intelligence. “This presents an opportunity for the alternative vendors to solidify the role of their services as delivering the core value proposition of cloud in a simpler, more digestible and often lower-cost configuration.”
Virtuozzo Hybrid Cloud is built on Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure, a “best-in-class” hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution. Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure would provide managed service providers and cloud service providers with “cost-effective, easy-to-manage” hyperconverged infrastructure that optimizes hardware utilization, lowers total cost of ownership, and delivers high server performance and availability.
Secured by design, Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure combines compute, storage, and networking services with advanced analytics and monitoring in a single, hardware-agnostic solution.
“Over the past year and a half, we have seen a lot of demand from our existing service provider partners for a solution that enables them to offer infrastructure solutions,” said Ahmed Amni, Director of Sales, EMEA, Virtuozzo. “We designed Virtuozzo Hybrid Cloud to address this need while offering more than 30% savings over comparable solutions. We are thrilled to bring a turnkey solution to the market that helps MSPs and CSPs open new opportunities and drive customer growth for years to come. We are excited to innovate and grow together with our partners.”
Virtuozzo Hybrid Cloud is available to MSPs and CSPs throughout Europe now, with global availability rolling out quickly. Pricing is based on either a Pay-as-You-Go model or on a reservation-based model, which extends additional cost savings to partners.
