(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Hexagrid, a leading developer of cloud enablement solutions, announces today a partnership with Boston Limited, an established distributor and integrator of Supermicro Computer server and storage solutions (NASDAQ: SMCI), to build complete pre-configured Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) clouds as an optimized solution delivery model that simplifies and accelerates private cloud adoption.
“We are excited to team-up with Boston Limited to co-engineer pre-packaged private clouds that streamline business adoption and service delivery with maximum ROI potential for both end-users and solution providers,” says Suresh Mandava, CEO of Hexagrid Computing. “This partnership promises to simplify private cloud deployment for our distribution partners who deliver customized cloud solutions to business end-users. Now, for one predictably low price, cloud solution providers offer their customers a comprehensive private cloud package that’s business-ready and massively scalable with plug-and-play simplicity. With the Hexagrid-Boston Partnership, solution providers can deliver the best of both worlds with private cloud security and public cloud support.”
Hexagrid and Boston Limited have co-engineered these bundled private clouds for optimal hardware utilization, speed-to-market cloud delivery, and remotely managed-service capability all pre-configured for unparalleled plug-in-and-go performance. This partnership will simplify and thereby accelerate private cloud adoption as Boston Limited integrates Hexagrid’s award-winning IaaS software for solution providers to deliver as either a hosted-private or on-premise private cloud. The Hexagrid-Boston Partnership currently offers two cloud configurations based on power optimized Supermicro™ hardware, including the eight-node MicroCloud® and the four-nodeBoston Quattro® which both include clustered file storage and remote management capabilities. These off the shelf solutions enable service providers to easily deliver these pre-packaged cloud modules out-of-the-box or augmented with additional services to build cloud solutions further tailored to meet clients’ needs.
“These pre-packaged Hexagrid IaaS cloud computing platforms have been jointly engineered by Boston and Supermicro™ as optimized appliances for creating private clouds,” says Manoj Nayee, Managing Director of Boston Limited. “Hexagrid’s Unovie Cloud is suitable for the most demanding applications and is sold as a business-ready out-of-box offering to achieve a complete private cloud software stack running on our MicroCloud® and Quattro® solutions. These solutions make use of local storage and external NFS or iSCSI and high performance networking options are supported with 10GbE and low-latency onboard QDR InfiniBand options. We are delighted with this collaborative partnership with Hexagrid and look forward to launching these solutions today at Interop Mumbai in India.”
Hexagrid will showcase the Boston Limited MicroCloud® and Quattro® private cloud configurations on September 28-30 at Interop Mumbai, booth numbers 60 and 61—the cornerstone of the cloud computing zone.
