Egenera Launches Wholesale, Multi-Cloud Leveraging AWS and Equinix

Egenera launched a wholesale, multi-cloud management platform that enables managed service providers and VARs to offer hybrid cloud services while leveraging the resources of Amazon Web Services and the Equinix Cloud Exchange.

Egenera said its Xterity platform enables its resale partners to quickly enter the cloud services market with their own branded service without up-front capital costs or ongoing management costs, and with the margins needed to ensure a profitable cloud services business. Xterity provides resellers with the ability to design, price and manage complex multi-tier and multi-cloud application environments for their end user customers. Xterity also includes the business and service management features.

Egenera's Xterity ties into the Equinix Cloud Exchange.  Its APIs currently support Amazon Web Services.  Egenera is looking to add support Microsoft Azure. It also integrates private cloud implementations.

The cited business continuity and disaster recovery services as growth drivers for its wholesale partners.  The service has been running in Ireland for a number of months and is now available globally.

“A global wholesale service like this makes it simple for partners to deliver a fully managed cloud service and deploy mission critical applications – all without having to build, manage or own their own infrastructure.  This frees resellers to focus on their customer relationships, create custom solutions and enhance their brand with their end users,” said Pete Manca, CEO of Egenera.
