Singapore-based CloudFX Group has launched CloudSelect, an open standards-based Cloud Services Brokerage platform which it calls a first-of-its-kind.
CloudSelect will offer more than 200 fully automated cloud services that enable enterprises and service providers to offer "Anything as a Service" — including underlying IT infrastructure, application development platforms and fully configured business software applications. CloudFX says CloudSelect is different because it provides value-added services based on compliance, configuration, performance monitoring, capacity management, security and availability, full stack provisioning and change management.
Enterprises use CloudSelect to choose cloud service offerings that best meet their business requirements. They then manage this multi-vendor portfolio of cloud services with CloudSelect's secure and personalized client portal and a single aggregated monthly bill, the company said.
"We've built CloudSelect from the ground up to meet the needs of both enterprise cloud customers and cloud service providers (CSPs), enabling them to successfully accelerate cloud adoption and transformation, as well as to differentiate and deliver value added services. Featuring integrated services management, our cloud procurement and management solution is already helping many enterprises and cloud-service providers around the globe achieve success with their cloud offerings," said Damian Crotty, CloudFX’s group founder and CEO.
CloudSelect's managed cloud services will be offered directly through its website, in dedicated on-premise enterprise appliances, and white-label service-provider appliances to strategic partners looking to participate and compete in the public cloud service domain.
