The report...says GigaSpaces has achieved what few cloud computing vendors have: offering in its cloud application orchestrator a tool that legitimately supports multiple types of clouds and multiple capabilities.

GigaSpaces Technologies has made available a recently published Ovum research report which describes the 3.x release of Cloudify orchestration platform as “not so much an upgrade as an OpenStack-centric rebirth.”

The report, written by Laurent Lachal, Ovum senior analyst, says GigaSpaces has achieved what few cloud computing vendors have: offering in its cloud application orchestrator a tool that legitimately supports multiple types of clouds and multiple capabilities. Lachal points out Cloudify 3.0’s improved architecture, which delivers better functionality, integration and scalability. He also highlights its support for the Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications (TOSCA) and OpenStack as evidence that Cloudify has emerged as “a strong shortlist contender as both a cloud application automation framework and a cloud abstraction layer, especially for those organizations interested in OpenStack.”
