(The Hosting News) – ComputeNext, a Gartner Cool Vendor in Cloud Service Brokerage, is officially licensing its software in partnership with CCCS to bring to market the first dedicated marketplace for cloud service offerings to serve China, a nation which has an estimated cloud computing value chain value of $18.6B this year with a compound annual growth rate of 91.5% each year.
The ComputeNext marketplace, a global leader in cloud marketplace technology, is distributing its software for the dedicated use of the China Cloud Computing Service for the creation of a wholly Chinese cloud hosting, storage, and software marketplace.
The goal of CCCS is to efficiently satisfy cloud computing infrastructure and software requirements within mainland China with a secure portal for cloud discovery, provisioning and procurement. This marketplace will be the first introduced to the China OpenStack User Community.
The ComputeNext IaaS marketplace platform makes it possible to compare cloud services and find the best cloud provider to service a given geography, with visibility in price, uptime, and other cloud performance metrics, such as provisioning consistency, speed, and machine reliability readily available to end-users. The patented federated cloud technology from ComputeNext is a portable cloud service brokerage platform (CSB-as-a-Service) which enables partners to go to market with their own ecosystem offering of cloud services.
In line with the Chinese Government’s 12th Five-Year Plan released in 2011 to spur cloud adoption, CCCS is getting ready to onboard Chinese cloud offerings and make them available for IT end-user consumption. The vision of CCCS, according to Dr. David Wang, CEO of CCCS, is to “rapidly facilitate cloud adoption in mainland China, which happens to be one of the fastest growing markets globally.”
As a licensor of cloud marketplace technology, ComputeNext CEO Sundar Kannan views this opportunity as “one of massive potential and significant implications for the cloud service industry and IT as a whole.” Mr. Kannan explained that, “By working closely with carefully selected Chinese IT industry veterans like Dr. David Wang – a renowned figure in the China OpenStack User Community – we have found the recipe to gain access to a massive market of end-users who are ‘born in the cloud’ and will seek to purchase and use cloud services through intuitive web portal or unified API”
ComputeNext – most recently named a Gartner Cool Vendor (2013) in Cloud Service Brokerage -is a Bellevue, WA based cloud-technology company which is pioneering the way organizations search, discover, procure and provision cloud services. As a leader in building federated cloud ecosystems they enable end-to-end transactions across platform agnostic infrastructure. With the belief that a handful of IaaS providers cannot satisfy the world’s computing demands, ComputeNext has built their marketplace to deliver a transparent and transactional user experience for the search, discovery, and provisioning of cloud services.
