Faced with multi-data center management limitations from its previous cloud software vendor, Weserve was in search of a mature, professional and high availability IaaS cloud orchestration solution that could serve its 1,500 to 2,000 customers and 25 resellers across the Netherlands.
Robert Nijhof, managing director, Weserve said, “It was important for us to manage our two datacenters in the Netherlands from one platform. After disappointment from our existing vendor, we evaluated Flexiant, OpenStack and CloudStack. Flexiant was able to meet our requirements so that we could support now, and expand in the future, our current cloud offering based on VPS with more capabilities and differentiated services.”
Weserve has deployed Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator across both datacenters and already has customers on the platform. Weserve has also now completed migrating its existing customers from the previous platform.
“The main benefit of selecting Flexiant was moving immediately to a multi-datacenter solution and secondly Bento Boxes. We extend the Bento Box functionality to our resellers as most want to turn multiple VPS solutions into hybrid solutions. With Flexiant’s valuable tool, they can use our solution, but deploy it themselves,” said Nijhof.
Flexiant’s cloud blueprint technology, Bento Boxes, offers pre-packaged, pre-configured and sophisticated application stacks that are ready to use.
By working closely with Flexiant’s Professional Services team, Weserve was able to get the platform up and running in days. Nijhof said, “The team at Flexiant is very supportive and knowledgeable. Combined with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator’s superiority to other vendors, we now have the technical solutions we need to support our customers and reseller business.”
“Any organization wanting mature, professional and high availability cloud orchestration should evaluate Flexiant. The solution makes our lives easier and allows us to deliver the service we want to offer. We plan to expand our use of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator as we expand our business,” concluded Nijhof.
