Parallels and Flexiant Partner to Offer a Fully Integrated IaaS Solution

Create and launch differentiated IaaS services in days with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator and Parallels Automation

New Orleans, LA and London, UK - February 25, 2014 - Flexiant and Parallels, a leading hosting and cloud services enablement provider, today announced that Parallels is now a global reseller of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, a leading cloud orchestration solution for offering differentiated IaaS services. The agreement offers Parallels providers, carriers and multi-system operators (MSOs) easy access to a broader choice of cloud management platforms and virtualization technologies.

Service providers using the integrated solution have a unique advantage to rapidly and cost effectively deliver a variety of IaaS services enabled by Flexiant's unique cloud orchestration capabilities, all provisioned and managed through Parallels Automation.

In addition, Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator now supports on-demand, fully automated provisioning of cloud services with Parallels Cloud Server virtualization and storage. Flexiant provides cloud orchestration for a wide range of hypervisor virtualization technologies and by extending their platform to include Parallels Cloud Server, it now supports high density, cost effective containers virtualization and cloud storage provided by Parallels Cloud Server.

The integrated Parallels and Flexiant solution gives hosting companies, service providers and telcos the unique ability to rapidly design and launch highly differentiated commercial IaaS and other related cloud services in days or weeks rather than months and years. IaaS is enabled by Flexiant's cloud orchestration software with shopfronts, customer management, automated billing and other capabilities delivered by Parallels Automation.

"Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator enables service providers to immediately control, build and monitor cloud IaaS," said Birger Steen, chief executive officer, Parallels. "By extending the platform to include virtualization based on Parallels Cloud Server, Flexiant will also support the highest density, highest performance, most cost effective virtualization and storage solution for hosted cloud services."

"Parallels has an international sales organization and over 10,000 service provider partners," said George Knox, chief executive officer, Flexiant. "For Flexiant, this global reseller agreement represents a massive increase in market reach. The integration between Parallels Automation and Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator gives a truly unique solution to anyone who wants to create and launch differentiated IaaS services in days.
