Flexential achieves VMware Cloud Verified status for its cloud platform
Flexential has announced that its new cloud platform, Flexential Cloud, has achieved VMware Cloud Verified status.
Cloud Verified status tells customers that Flexential offers a service running on top of the complete VMware Cloud infrastructure. Through Cloud Verified partner services, customers have access to the full set of VMware Cloud Infrastructure capabilities including integration and interoperability, cost optimisation and flexibility.
"Our goal is to make the complex cloud-world simple for our customers by offering best-in-class infrastructure that allows for third party integration, automation and manageability to meet the needs of enterprises today, while also providing a spring-board for future innovation," said Mike Fuhrman, chief product and information officer, at Flexential. "Our new VMware Cloud Verified platform, when coupled with our broad portfolio, most notably our Professional Services, connectivity to hyperscalers, managed services and national colocation platform, puts us in a unique position to help our customers wherever they are along their cloud journey."
Flexential Cloud enables applications and workloads to be delivered via a flexible, scalable deployment model. With eight new cloud nodes strategically placed across North America and Europe to ensure low latency and high performance, the multi-tenant cloud and hosted private cloud offerings include built-in compliance to the hypervisor level and are optimised for security.
"Partners that are VMware Cloud Verified provide organizations with complete and advanced VMware Cloud technologies, along with interoperability across clouds for greater advantage for their customers' businesses," said Jim Aluotto, senior director of cloud provider business, Americas Region, VMware. "Cloud Verified services delivered by VMware Cloud Providers deliver the efficiency, agility and reliability inherent in cloud computing. We look forward to supporting Flexential as it empowers organizations with a simple and flexible path to the cloud."
In June of this year, Flexential sold its data centre in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Landmark Dividend. The news marked the 11th data centre asset that Landmark and its affiliates have closed since the digital infrastructure division was formed in Q4 2017.
