Australian OpenStack services provider, Aptira, has expanded its global footprint through a partnership with Brazilian company, NubeliU. NubeliU is the latest organisation to partner with Aptira, following strategic agreements with US-based Akanda and Cumulus Networks in October.
NubeliU provides enterprises and datacentre customers with a productised deployment of Openstack and accompanying professional services and engineering to allow deployment, growth, monitoring and maintenance services for private and hybrid Cloud environments.
As per the agreement, the alliance will deliver OpenStack and DevOps services without the limitations of time zones, and with offices in Sydney, India, Taiwan and Hungary, Aptira will be able to fill the time-zone gap by leveraging NubeliU’s position in the South American market, the company said in a statement.
Aptira will combine its OpenStack expertise with NubeliU’s services in OpenStack as a converged Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to deliver customised Cloud solutions, as well as technology consultancy and training to customers.
Aptira CEO, Tristan Goode, said NubeliU’s expertise, in conjunction with its location, made it an ideal choice for when searching for a suitable partner.
“With headquarters in Sydney and offices in India, Taiwan and Hungary, Aptira is now able to fill the time-zone gap and provide complete follow-the-sun support to its global customer base. Service is our main focus, and by expanding across the globe and into new time zones, a large communication gap has been filled.
“In partnering with disruptive organisation such as NubeliU, we can drive OpenStack innovation and provide an extensive solution for our clients,” Goode said.
NubeliU CEO and co-founder, Rodrigo Benzaquen, said its services capabilities complement Aptira’s reputation as one the players in the OpenStack market.
“Aptira has shown the ability to deploy OpenStack in many organisations with excellence. OpenStack adoption is accelerating, as are consumer expectations. We are very excited to move forward with this partnership and to meet customer demand by providing 24 hour, 7 days a week support,” Benzaquen added.
