Unitas Global and Solinea Partner to Offer a Holistic OpenStack Hybrid Cloud Solution for Enterprises

Offering Eliminates OpenStack Implementation Challenges by Combining Fully Managed Cloud Infrastructure with Enterprise Deployment, Implementation and Adoption Services

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 25, 2016) - Unitas Global, the leading enterprise cloud solutions provider, today announces a new partnership with Solinea, a provider of open infrastructure solutions for deployment and adoption of production clouds, helping enterprises take advantage of the benefits OpenStack provides without the associated challenges. The partnership combines Unitas' custom cloud architecture, management expertise and global operations with Solinea's integration and adoption solutions enabling enterprises to deploy and fully adopt more modern, agile cloud infrastructure and processes.

Unitas Global designs, deploys and operates cloud services for enterprise organizations looking to take advantage of secure, OpenStack hybrid cloud computing without traditional vendor lock-in and the challenges associated with building and operating production-grade cloud environments. Unitas also offers customers 24x7x365 support and full visibility into the health and performance of their OpenStack environment through the Unitas Atlas™ unified monitoring platform and Cloud Management Center.

"Many enterprises are considering OpenStack solutions to take advantage of enhanced agility, flexibility and lack of vendor lock-in, but often find difficulty in implementing the strategy to drive successful adoption of these cloud environments," comments Grant Kirkwood, Founder and CTO of Unitas Global. "By partnering with Solinea, we are able to offer enterprise businesses not only the infrastructure, guidance and ongoing management of OpenStack clouds, but also the post-deployment integration, training, and culture transformation to ensure seamless adoption within the organization."

An ideal complement to Unitas' solutions, Solinea's adoption services include role and process definition, process and tools implementations, operations runbooks, training and mentorship. These services extend beyond the technology implementation to ensure that the cloud is fully integrated and adopted by the enterprise, while addressing customers' security, compliance and regulatory needs as well as challenging operating requirements. The joint offering from Unitas and Solinea helps enterprises build step-by-step modernization plans to evolve from legacy infrastructure and processes to modern cloud and open source infrastructure driven by DevOps and Agile processes.

"Partnering with Unitas Global is the right decision for our current and future customers looking to architect and deploy open, vendor-agnostic cloud solutions," says Solinea CEO, Francesco Paola. "As we work with leading global enterprises and service providers to architect and deploy cloud, container and microservices solutions at scale that drive agility into the organization through DevOps adoption and cut infrastructure costs, it is important for us to work with a leading enterprise cloud solution provider that understands our customers' needs, has an exceptional team and delivers solid results. Unitas Global is a great choice."

The Unitas Global and Solinea teams will discuss the partnership and their respective offerings at OpenStack Summit, taking place October 25-28 in Barcelona, Spain. Mr. Kirkwood will also be giving two presentations at the OpenStack Summit. On Tuesday, October 25, he will present one way to learn OpenStack from the inside out, in a session titled "From How-To to POC to Production: Learning by Building." On Wednesday, October 26, Mr. Kirkwood will present, "OpenStack in the Wild! How to Make OpenStack a Reality in Your Company." The presentation will arm enterprise IT leaders with tangible action items they can use to successfully deploy and adopt OpenStack within their organizations. Refer to the latest OpenStack Summit schedule time and location of these presentations.
