WAYNE, Pa., Feb. 15 – Evolve IP, The Cloud Services Company, today announced it has released the OSSmosis enterprise cloud manager (ECM) to help customers take better advantage of its award-winning cloud services platform. Evolve IP’s cloud manager was developed with ManageIQ software, which was acquired by Red Hat, Inc. in December 2012, as its foundation. It provides real-time information on a customer’s virtual resources along with the ability to easily modify and control them.
An Inc. 500 company, Evolve IP provides organizations with a unified option for cloud services. Today, tens of thousands of users across the globe depend daily on Evolve IP for cloud services like virtual servers, virtual desktops, disaster recovery, unified communications, contact centers, and more.
Evolve IP’s OSSmosis ECM provides a number of intelligent services and a platform for new features to be rolled out quickly. Initially, customers can control the power states of their virtual servers and manage them with resource allocation and direct console access from anywhere. Customers also can self-serve existing production computing environments or procure reserved pools of infrastructure by the unit and build on-demand.
“While most IT professionals understand the cost savings associated with moving their servers to the cloud, they may not realize they have the same ability to control and manage them,” said Scott Kinka, Chief Technology Officer at Evolve IP. “Evolve IP’s proprietary OSSmosis enterprise cloud manager takes it a step further and provides an intuitive, high-visibility tool that enables IT pros to manage servers just like they would if they were in their own data center.”
“We’re excited to collaborate with Evolve IP on its compelling enterprise cloud manager,” said Bryan Che, General Manager, Cloud Business Unit at Red Hat. “Having ManageIQ software deployed on Evolve IP’s award-winning private cloud platform demonstrates the flexibility and power of ManageIQ technologies. We look forward to continuing our work with Evolve IP and other industry leaders.”
“These new capabilities further Evolve IP’s position as a market leader in consumable and predictable private cloud infrastructure,” said Joe Corvaia, Evolve IP’s Vice President of Cloud Computing. “The portal allows businesses to meet changing requirements rapidly and economically in a pay-as-you-go environment. It also helps leaders enforce business and IT policies through secure, role-driven access and simplifies the self-service life cycle.”
