Client Area APIs were mentioned in our last update in mid-December and we wanted to start 2016 off by providing our clients and partners this exciting new level of flexibility.
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) January 25, 2016
Cartika, a leading Canadian provider of managed application and cloud hosting services, announced today significant new functionality to its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Cloud Server Platform. These added extensions to Cartika’s IaaS cloud offering are called “Client Area APIs.”
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are a set of routines and protocols used as building blocks for software development and communication between programs. The purpose of APIs in the context of managing infrastructure is to allow users to see, change and even automate key components of their systems.
This added functionality gives users visibility and control over their hosted IT environments from within their own systems, bypassing the need to use an external portal. By using this integration, customers save time by using tools they are familiar with. This is of particular importance for partners who resell Cartika’s services to many end-clients and prefer to use existing in-house control panels.
According to Cartika CEO Andrew Rouchotas, “we have worked exceedingly hard this past year to make our IaaS Cloud Server Platform easier to consume, operate and manage. The Client Area APIs were mentioned in our last update in mid-December and we wanted to start 2016 off by providing our clients and partners this exciting new level of flexibility.” Andrew continues to say “we will remain tightly focused on providing cloud solutions that work seamlessly within our clients' existing IT frameworks. This has been a vision at Cartika from the beginning.”
Over the past few months, Cartika has restructured the way it offers and sells and its IaaS cloud services. The company has also launched a series of major enhancements that let clients better manage their ISOs on Virtual Machines (VMs); customize Bare Metal Restore (BMR) processes; and take advantage of integrated SSH key support. Currently on the product roadmap, Cartika plans to further enhance its Backup-as-a-Service offering, expand their storage infrastructure tiers, and add functionality to perform replication between facilities.
