We feel very strongly that the next step in the evolution of this marketplace is a unified buying and selling platform. - Jason Mendenhall, EVP of Cloud at Switch SUPERNAPs
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
ComputeNext, a Gartner Cool Vendor in Cloud Service Brokerage, is officially announcing a partnership with Switch SUPERNAP, an independent technology solutions ecosystem provider based in Las Vegas, Nevada to bring to market a Switch SUPERNAP branded cloud marketplace colocated within the SUPERNAP ecosystem to offer premium choice and facilitate the comparison and provisioning of cloud services for the SME and cloud end user.
This marketplace will serve as an enablement platform for Switch’s Cloud Ubiquitous Business Exchange (C.U.B.E). It will offer customers a one stop shop to compare and provision on-demand cloud services. By leveraging the patented federated cloud platform from ComputeNext, the Switch SUPERNAP will enable an ecosystem for cloud end users to purchase and use services powered by Switch SUPERNAP providers.
The Switch SUPERNAP marketplace portal will guarantee cloud end users quality of service and the knowledge that their clouds are running in the best-designed technology solutions ecosystems in the world, thanks to over 218 patented and patent pending claims in data center technology and a long track record of superior performance. The ability to provision from a one stop shop will eliminate fear about getting locked into single cloud service providers, and increase deployment speed by abstracting the API layer between the multitude of cloud platforms, products, and services that ComputeNext currently supports.
1. Switch SUPERNAP to enable their Cloud Ubiquitous Business Exchange (C.U.B.E) with provisioning and transactions across IaaS and select other on-demand service providers by leveraging ComputeNext marketplace enablement technology.
2. Users of the Switch C.U.B.E will soon be able to access a select number of cloud providers from the marketplace and use on-demand infrastructure from providers such as Joyent and HP.
3. Switch SUPERNAP seeks to generate new revenue opportunities for its existing cloud providers, and enhance its already existing portfolio of services.
4. ComputeNext aggregates IaaS and other on-demand services and abstracts for the account management, programmable interface layer and procurement processes of cloud services to make it possible to purchase and provision such services from a single account and Unified API.
5. Switch SUPERNAP customers will be able to discover services through search, filters, or UI to compare price, region, uptime, and other performance factors such as provisioning consistency, speed, and machine reliability.
