London, UK – Flexiant today announced the release of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator V4.2. With V4.2, Flexiant tightens its integration with Parallels Automation and Parallels Cloud Server, extends its software defined networking (SDN) capabilities to the VMware platform and adds official support for VMware vSphere 5.5, Mixpanel integration and other upgrades.

Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator V4.2 marks the completion of the portfolio of deep integration with Parallels technology. V4.2 now integrates with Parallels Automation using APS 2.0. Parallels customers can use the Parallels control panel to install and configure infrastructure and resources via Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator. Any customer using Parallels Automation can now launch differentiated hypervisor-agnostic infrastructure as a service (IaaS) using the tightly integrated Parallels and Flexiant Solution. This comes off the back of the general availability of the integrated Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator and Parallels Cloud Server (PCS) virtualization and storage news, marking the world’s first cloud orchestration solution to support Parallels’ container technology.

George Knox, CEO, Flexiant said, “Since the beginning of 2014, we have made several announcements regarding our relationship with Parallels. Today’s announcement addresses the service providers’ need to support their customers that are moving more production workloads to public clouds every day. These customers are looking to service providers to supply IaaS and SaaS solutions in integrated bundles, with unified management, and simplified user experiences. With the Parallels and Flexiant integration, service providers can expand their reach to a more technical business decision maker and IT buyers within the customers’ organizations.”

The latest version adds further support for VMware customers. Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator V4.2 includes an SDN feature to allow a more efficient and scalable use of IPv4 addresses, which is now available for the VMware platform, as well as existing and continued Flexiant support for all the main hypervisors. Flexiant now offers official support for VMware vSphere 5.5.

Additional features and enhancements include:

• Easier and more secure integration with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator – With the enhanced REST API, API keys and token based authentication support, Flexiant makes it far more easy and secure to integrate with the platform. End users can securely gain access to the platform without handing over private information.
• Mixpanel integration – In-depth event-based analytics tool, giving service providers business intelligence on their Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator platform activities.

Knox concluded, “Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator should be the core to any service providers’ cloud helping to not only manage it, but to also serve as the integration tool. As an ecosystem enabler, we are furthering the ability for service providers to create differentiated cloud services.”

Heart Internet Director Craig Cotter said: “Moving to .uk is an important forward step for Heart Internet, a move which highlights our continued commitment to the UK name space. As one of the UK’s leading web hosting companies it is vital that we take the lead and show our customers the benefits of moving to the shorter .uk domain name.

“Businesses that are looking to make the switch to .uk should not feel overwhelmed, as long as search engine best practices are followed. As well as this, businesses and individuals should always look to protect their brand online. The .uk domain name has become one of the fastest selling new arrivals on record and this is a great opportunity to invest in an extension name that symbolises being part of the digital economy.”
