Data center colocation and cloud solutions provider Flexential has announced the release of an all-new, on-demand connectivity platform that makes it possible for customers to provision and deploy private cloud connectivity to public cloud service providers.
The offering solves the common issues of security associated with public cloud connections which is a major concern for today enterprises.
The offering, Flexential Cloud Fabric, works through a self-programmable portal so customers can easily manage their connections to public clouds in real-time and reduce their reliance on public internet. The easy to use portal means adding, changing and removing connections can be done quickly and easily by users.
"Flexential's Cloud Fabric saved us valuable time by streamlining the process of implementing cloud connectivity. What typically took us months to connect via standard telco services we accomplished in days with Flexential's Cloud Fabric solution," said Mike Schnepf, Vice President of Network and Systems Engineering, Gogo.
For this large broadband connectivity services provider, the need to scale quickly and integrate their data center deployments with public cloud providers was critical.
Multi-cloud adoption is growing rapidly today as more businesses look for ways to distribute workloads. For today’s modern enterprise especially, connecting and managing multiple cloud services requires an offering that improves application performance and user experience without sacrificing security.
"Managing multiple public cloud environments is a challenge. To remain competitive, organizations must ensure their data and workloads are secure, end user expectations are met, and costs remain in-check," said Ryan Mallory, COO of Colocation Services, Flexential.
