Cloud Brokerage platforms are becoming an essential tool for CIO’s and service providers alike. The CSB platform will provide greater efficiency and governance over the provision and adoption of cloud services creating a more dynamic and agile ecosystem.

The CompatibleOne Team is excited to announce the launch of CompatibleOne SAS to support the world’s first open source Cloud Service Brokerage platform.

CompatibleOne SAS will become a market leader in Cloud Service Brokerage for CIO’s, operators of marketplaces, brokerage services and cloud exchanges in the era of the Third Platform (Cloud, Mobile, Social Business and Big Data).

CompatibleOne is an open source and open standards based software. Fully compliant with the NIST definition of CSB, CompatibleOne enables intermediation, aggregation and arbitrage. As organisations are moving to adopt the cloud, Cloud Service Brokerage Platforms are providing an opportunity to capitalise on this new paradigm with simplicity and velocity.

The launch of CompatibleOne SAS, is responding to the following market demands:

  • IT departments looking to deliver IT as a Service and work with the Lines of Business who wish to adopt SaaS, PaaS and IaaS solutions as a part of the organisations product mix
  • Cloud Service Providers wanting to federate resources with other private or public providers
  • Independent Software Vendors looking for multi cloud provisioning for their SaaS solutions
  • Managed Service Providers needing to develop more scalable approaches to service provisioning with the aim to create a Cloud Service Broker (CSB) market.

They all require a professional, customizable and supported platform to dynamically spread compute requirements across multiple providers. They also need instruments to control the behavior and performance of their various workloads deployed into the cloud.

Fortune500 companies are demanding a shift to a more dynamic approach to compute technology such as hybrid deployments, portability of workloads, automated provisioning on multiple virtualization platforms, and public clouds running a variety of technology stacks, CompatibleOne SAS delivers this. The CompatibleOne platform prevents vendor lock-in and offers means to ensure security and trust in infrastructure and operations. Last but not least CompatibleOne includes SLA & QoS monitoring and management and integrates support for audit and compliance.

While offering its continuous support to the CompatibleOne Community as a whole, CompatibleOne SAS is now proposing a comprehensive and global offering composed of support and maintenance contracts, professional services, training programs as well as new cloud services. The company has set up a development plan which takes full advantage of the growing importance of the CSB market for 2014 and beyond.

“We believe that the future of cloud computing will lead to computing as a utility service and that the CompatibleOne technology sets the stage to this future. CompatibleOne SAS is committed to deliver the standard technology for this new era,” explains Jean-Pierre LAISNE, founder and CEO. “Working closely with Intel on technologies such as TXT gives us an invaluable opportunity to meet the needs of our customers in terms of cloud services. Plus the fact that such an advanced provider as CloudSigma recognizes the importance of CompatibleOne, is a great satisfaction for us,” adds LAISNE.

CompatibleOne SAS debuts with a strong technology collaboration with Intel®. Together they collaborate to refine the technical and commercial side of the start-up offering. CompatibleOne brokerage service uses Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) to confirm the integrity of the server hardware, BIOS and hypervisor components on which cloud workloads are run. By establishing a root of trust from the hardware up, customers can ensure their data is processed in a trusted environment.

“Based on the feedback we get from customers, we identify a clear need for more transparency, security and interoperability in the cloud. Therefore the existence of an open source broker such as CompatibleOne compliant with open standards is strategic,” said Stephan Hilby, EMEA Cloud provider Manager, Intel.

CompatibleOne gets also a large acceptance from providers such as CloudSigma. “As the cloud industry matures and vendors flood the market, there will be an increasing need for companies like CompatibleOne that can offer seamless management of multiple cloud environments,” said Robert Jenkins, CEO, CloudSigma. “To meet the compute demands of our customers spanning different geographies, CloudSigma has data centers throughout the U.S. and Europe, with more to come in 2014 and beyond. With CompatibleOne, our customers can now log in via one central platform to easily monitor all of their cloud servers, regardless of location, for a transparent, comprehensive view of their compute environment.”

IDC Research Manager, Adam Dodds analyzes that “Cloud Brokerage platforms are becoming an essential tool for CIO’s (corporate and government) and service providers alike. The CSB platform will provide greater efficiency and governance over the provision and adoption of cloud services creating a more dynamic and agile ecosystem. CompatibleOne has seen the market opportunity in the space and is well placed to be a market leader. CIO’s should be evolving an awareness and understanding of this proposition as they evolve to become more strategic and information centric in their organisational focus.”

The CompatibleOne Team will be present on the 26th and 27th of February at Cloud Expo 2014 in London on the OW2 booth (520) and will participate to a number of talks during the event:
