Flex+

A fully flexible, enterprise managed cloud support and hosting service

Giving you a single pane of glass visibility into any of the major public clouds, all under one network and with one management structure.

Cloud means many things to different people. Public cloud is about sharing the same compute space with others via the internet.  Private clouds have many of the characteristics of public clouds but they are owned and operated by the organisation that uses them. Hybrid clouds are a blend of the two.

 

Having the right understanding and the right technology, at the appropriate time, to best do the job – is key to cloud adoption.

 

We adopt a holistic view. One that assesses the totality of your organisation’s processing requirements before creating solutions. Whether it’s Azure, AWS, Google or SoftLayer – or any combination – we can deliver what you need.

 

We can help you with cloud readiness, migration, optimisation or transition. Whatever it takes, whatever you need.

Odometer with "local support", "Total cost of ownership", "agnostic cloud source", and "transparency of service and deliverables" as the measurements

 

Flex+ is an enterprise managed cloud. We design, build and operate across private cloud (including Hostworks’ private cloud powered by OpenStack) and the major global cloud platforms Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Softlayer and Google (GCP), and we do this 24/7.

 

Flex+ is supported by a new management platform that provides customers a single dashboard to manage all aspects of their environments, including cloud. This platform provides transparency and control over the infrastructure (orchestration), budgets, code base, project management as well as Business Process Management (BPM) to ensure budgets are respected without getting in the road of agility and devops requirements. It’s platform and vendor agnostic, meaning you can see your whole enterprise universe in one holistic vision.

 

Most importantly, Flex+ is Hostworks’ people, available 24/7, to manage your business critical applications and ensure that your connection with your customers never breaks.

Global Cloud Infrastructure Market Share

Despite the proliferation of hundreds of cloud infrastructure providers it is clear that the top 4 or 5 players will be where the majority of mature cloud customers turn for core services.

We believe that the services covered by the ‘big-4’ will provide more than enough diversity for our customers.

Hostworks is a major partner to each of these players and when combined with our own on-premise and private cloud solutions (powered by Openstack), customers have absolute flexibility while accessing our 24/7 support.
