Flexiant, a provider of cloud orchestration software, has won a contract to provide cloud services for ITSONNET, enabling gaming and reinsurance companies to automate processing at reduced costs.
The Cloud Orchestrator solution, which comes with a customisable interface, multi-level metering and billing flexibility, is integrated with Flexiant's Bento Boxes.
George Knox, CEO at Flexiant, said: "Our software has been developed to give cloud service providers such as ITSONNET and their customers' flexibility to commercialise the cloud by offering differentiated services. ITSONNET is an exceptional example of how one service provider is differentiating against Amazon and others by targeting key vertical markets and meeting customer demand.
"This flexibility means we can help ITSONNET deliver on specific customer needs, For instance, ITSONNET's gaming customers need their data to reside on dedicated infrastructure, while still wanting to have 'Amazon-style' provisioning and billing. With Flexiant, ITSONNET is now able to offer this type of exclusive infrastructure, as well as billing and provisioning flexibility."
ITSONNET reviewed different cloud orchestration and management options including OpenStack, but found many providers didn't offer all the tools required for rapid deployment and provisioning at a commercial level via the web.
Rajinder Basi, CEO at ITSONNET, said customers are seeking a cloud that enables them to control usage as well as costs.
"However they have specific challenges - for instance, the reinsurance industry involves a lot of big data mining which requires enormous amounts of analytical processing, and flexible capabilities to address seasonal fluctuations in claims," he explained.
"Likewise, as the gaming market moves away from traditional disc space systems, gaming companies need the ability to deliver capacity on demand for online cloud-based gaming, as well as to quickly increase services to cope with the demands of testing and development schedules."
