Software company ASG and cloud management software company Zimory GmbH have partnered to enable ASG to deliver IaaS automation in addition to its Software as a Service (SaaS), Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Platform as a Service (Paas) capabilities by integrating Zimory’s Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Management software with ASG CloudFactory suite.
The companies have partnered to provide customers with a complete elastic cloud offering to build low cost, highly scalable public and private clouds for all market segments.
The integrated cloud offering delivers a copmplete optimisation of the entire platform service life cycle, said ASG.
ASG CloudFactory provides customer’s cloud environment with secure access from any device to applications and services via a standardised user interface; automated, workflow-based provisioning of applications and services; and a backend that designs, builds and manages all components required for cloud infrastructures.
ASG said the integration of Zimory’s technology into ASG CloudFactory benefit customers from a flexible, open IaaS platform that offers better performance and supports distributed locations and manages end user requirements and resources in private, public and hybrid cloud environments.

ASG CEO Arthur Allen said Zimory’s IaaS cloud management software, which notably supports all major hypervisors and virtualisation technologies, is a strong complement to CloudFactory’s capabilities.
"Its user friendly, self-service portal enables our customers to rapidly deploy and manage solutions for service providers, development clouds, test & lab clouds and enterprise IT consolidation across multiple sites, while avoiding costly lock-in," said Allen.
Zimory CEO Rüdiger Baumann said the partnership is a natural fit since both Zimory and ASG are dedicated to bringing customers efficient, easy to deploy cloud management tools.
"Zimory is able to provide a powerful addition to ASG CloudFactory and we look forward to providing customers with the benefit of our combined solution," said Baumann.
