ASG Software Solutions today announced a partnership with Zimory GmbH. The integration of Zimory’s Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Management software with ASG CloudFactory suite enables ASG to seamlessly deliver IaaS automation in addition to its Software as a Service (SaaS), Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Platform as a Service (Paas) capabilities. The partnership offers customers a complete elastic cloud solution to build low cost, highly scalable public and private clouds for all market segments; from SMEs with low cost bundles to larger enterprises handling the most demanding workloads.
The fully integrated cloud solution, available in November, is the only cloud platform in the market to deliver a true 360 degree optimization of the entire platform service life cycle. ASG CloudFactory provides three key elements to a customer’s cloud environment: secure access from any device to applications and services via a standardized user interface; automated, workflow-based provisioning of applications and services; and a backend that designs, builds and manages all components required for cloud infrastructures. By integrating Zimory’s technology into ASG CloudFactory, customers benefit from a flexible, open IaaS platform that offers superior performance and supports distributed locations and manages end user requirements and resources in private, public and hybrid cloud environments. Customers will be able to lower the operational costs of highly complex cloud platforms, typically by 50% over competitive solutions, while offering true service differentiation.
“Zimory’s IaaS cloud management software, which notably supports all major hypervisors and virtualization technologies, is a strong complement to CloudFactory’s capabilities. Its user friendly, self-service portal enables our customers to rapidly deploy and manage solutions for service providers, development clouds, test & lab clouds and enterprise IT consolidation across multiple sites, while avoiding costly lock-in”, states Arthur Allen, CEO of ASG.
“Our partnership is a natural fit since both Zimory and ASG are dedicated to bringing customers efficient, easy to deploy cloud management tools. Zimory is able to provide a powerful addition to ASG CloudFactory and we look forward to providing customers with the benefit of our combined solution,” said Rüdiger Baumann, CEO of Zimory.
