Ormuco launches fully managed cloud service in Finland

Montreal-based Ormuco, in collaboration with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and ALSO, has launched a fully managed cloud computing service in Finland that offers enterprise customers, service providers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and resellers true workload portability in an open, vendor-neutral, hybrid cloud environment, the company said.

Ormuco Stack offers a full-featured, turnkey cloud platform that works seamlessly across public and private environments and addresses security and data sovereignty requirements, enabling businesses in Finland and around the world to choose where and how their applications are deployed and data stored.

Ormuco Stack is now available to value-added resellers (VARs) and service providers (SPs) in Finland on the ALSO Cloud Marketplace, through select HPE partners, and from the HPE-sponsored Cloud28+ community.

With Ormuco Stack, VARs, SPs and ISVs can offer their enterprise customers a public cloud experience–easy, convenient and self-service–inside their own datacenters. Ormuco Stack also allows enterprises to burst seamlessly from on-premises to off-premises managed clouds when workloads demand it, without having to worry about complex integrations. Ormuco Stack offers this because the architectures of the on-premises cloud and the off-premises cloud are fully compatible.

With Ormuco Stack, ALSO customers can configure private or hybrid cloud platforms for their clients with a pay-per-use or a term commitment model. The solution is delivered from ALSO´s Tier 3 TUV-Certified datacenters operated in 12 European countries, supported by HPE infrastructure. Fully managed and updated by Ormuco, the platform is engineered around OpenStack RESTful APIs and achieves operational excellence through artificial intelligence (AI), automation and machine learning, thereby ensuring scalability, efficiency and cost optimization.
