Abiquo Partners with Everis to Implement Private Cloud Computing

Partnership enables enterprises to implement private cloud as a business strategy

Abiquo on Tuesday announced its partnership with everis, a multi-national consulting company.

"Our customers want leading technology solutions that give them greater control and flexibility," noted Juan Carlos Ferrer, everis head of global cloud computing outsourcing. "We continue evaluating the other Cloud management solutions, but found that Abiquo's business policy engine is unique. It makes implementing our strategies much easier and customers can use the policy engine to adapt to changing needs. Abiquo gives us the power to manage global infrastructure with heterogeneous environments, so we can recommend the same strategy for VMware users as we would for Hyper-V or open source users."

Everis' cloud computing technology service builds and implements private cloud strategies, from architecture through management. Abiquo Enterprise Edition empowers everis to leverage existing and third party infrastructure resources, including heterogeneous compute, network, and storage resources to build private Clouds.

Abiquo and everis will work jointly to market and implement private Clouds. In addition, Abiquo will leverage everis resources to expand their service and implementation capability throughout Europe and Latin America. The partnership gives everis the option to provide managed Cloud services to their customers or to implement private Cloud policies that enforce strategic goals.

Everis is seeing increasing demand for Cloud strategies from its European and Latin American customers, which is also reflected in recent research. According to a recent Frost & Sullivan end-user study, 50% of Latin American companies are already using some form of Cloud computing, and many more have plans to implement Cloud strategies in 2011. The Centre for Economics and Business Research calculated that €177.3 billion per year will be generated by 2015 if Europe's five largest economies continue to adopt Cloud technology as expected.
