To reduce the time to provision infrastructure and application resources for its customers and decrease costs, AB Network today announced it has selected Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator.

Based in Panama, AB Network operates a dedicated data center to offer its customers infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS), back up site monitoring, web applications and services administration.

Pablo Olivo at AB Network, said, "We were wasting time and revenue generating opportunities manually provisioning our infrastructure. We needed to automate our infrastructure and that required cloud orchestration software so we evaluated Flexiant and OpenStack. Ease of deployment and time to market was of the essence so we opted for Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator."

Introduced to AB Network by Parallels, Flexiant was selected because of its speed of provisioning not only infrastructure, but also the infrastructure blueprint functionality which allows the cloud service provider to offer pre-packaged, configured and sophisticated application stacks ready to use.

Olivo continued, "In a side by side comparison of OpenStack, we were impressed with the ease of understanding the Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator deployment within our data center and also how it offered us a more complete product to go to market. We also needed only three servers with minimum specs to get up and running versus the five needed for OpenStack."

AB Network will use the Flexiant integrated billing, operate on KVM hypervisors and benefit from an out of the box store front.

George Knox, CEO, Flexiant said, "Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator helps service providers keep their customers happy by being able to respond to requests faster with a full range of functionality and services. We are helping AB Network and our other customers decrease the cost of manual infrastructure provisioning and offer the cloud services businesses expect of the cloud industry, both extremely important in this extremely competitive market."
