Abiquo is a leading developer of Cloud management solutions founded in 2006 and now headquartered in Redwood City, California.  In the Abiquo vision, private and public clouds are fully interoperable and vendor neutral. The management of these clouds is delegated across the organization in complete safety, freeing up IT resources and increasing agility and efficiency.

The Abiquo vision completely separates the provision of physical infrastructure from the consumption of those resources by virtual enterprises, which enjoy fully delegated management and control, within allocated resource limits.   Virtual assets are automatically provisioned across the physical infrastructure according to a multi-dimensional workload policy which considers factors such as functionality, availability, performance, data security, compliance, load balancing and cost.

Physical infrastructure, managed by the IT operations organization, provides resource from local and remote datacenters, managed service providers and IaaS vendors in any combination, to a "Resource Cloud", while virtual enterprises (containing virtual datacenters, virtual machines and virtual appliances) consume it.

Available in an open source Community Edition and as an Enterprise Edition with advanced features and industrial grade support, the Abiquo solution capitalizes on the vision with an intuitive, role-based graphical user interface, and practical functionality such as the ability to instantly deploy pre-bundled virtual server and storage collections, or to deploy transparently on live running environments.   Abiquo is hypervisor agnostic, supporting all five of the major hypervisor types, and uniquely provides the ability to covert virtual machine images from any hypervisor type to any other in a single drag and drop operation.
