Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
The ComputeNext multi-cloud marketplace and file transfer accelerator FileCatalyst are pairing up to increase file transfer speeds across the entire multi-cloud inventory available for purchase on the ComputeNext marketplace. Multi-cloud procurement and accelerated file transfers will launch during Cloud Expo Silicon Valley at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA and become readily available for provisioning on three distinct cloud providers, with 10+ supported by the end of November.
Customers of both ComputeNext and Unlimi-Tech will now be able to access FileCatalyst, the accelerated, reliable and secure managed file transfer solutions and choose the best cloud provider to deliver its services through utilization of the ComputeNext federated inventory of IaaS. The public will now be able to replace outdated file transfer technology like FTP, HTTP, or CIFS, in the cloud without worrying about getting locked into a single cloud platform or provider. In early October ComputeNext began vetting ISVs and developers looking to increase the footprint of their cloud applications through integration on the ComputeNext marketplace, and FileCatalyst was selected as an early entrant thanks to its positioning as the leader of file transfer technology with a diverse and global customer base and strong track record.
By making the options available in cloud services more apparent and easily procurable – ComputeNext is empowering flexible workloads which are unchained and more tuned in to customer’s requirements. As an alternative to other cloud marketplaces which are limited to specific infrastructure or cloud platforms, ComputeNext partners with ISVs such as Unlimi-Tech Software to offer end-users choice not only at the infrastructure layer but across the entire cloud service spectrum.
“At ComputeNext we believe in building the richest ecosystem of cloud services imaginable.” says Sundar Kannan the founder and CEO of ComputeNext,“It’s been our hope that an independent marketplace like ours could attract best of breed services to offer end-users, and with the integration of Unlimi-Tech Software’s FileCatalyst into our federated marketplace we are well on our way.”
“As both, big data and cloud services continue to be an important IT trend, companies are looking for platforms that they can leverage and more importantly that give them options and choices that meet their particular needs,” said Alan Atkinson, Vice President of Business Development for Unlimi-Tech. “ComputeNext’s position as an independent aggregator of IaaS offers companies this choice. We are very pleased to work with ComputeNext to offer the FileCatalyst accelerated file transfer solutions in their multi-cloud procurement marketplace.”

ComputeNext a Bellevue, WA based cloud-technology company, is pioneering the way organizations search, discover, procure and provision cloud infrastructure with their multi-cloud marketplace.
Holding the belief that a few cloud providers cannot satisfy the world’s computing demands their mission is to promote choice and efficient computing through federation. In reference to cloud service brokerage they have been called an “uber-aggregator” of IaaS.
