CloudSigma partners with open source cloud manager CompatibleOne | Business Cloud News

CloudSigma partners with open source cloud manager CompatibleOne | Business Cloud News | CompatibleOne | Scoop.it
Public cloud service provider CloudSigma announced Friday that the company is partnering with recently launched open-source cloud management provider CompatibleOne. The move is intended to bolster CloudSigma’s image as an open cloud service provider, and adds to CompatibleOne’s growing list of cloud services compatible with the growing open source interoperability platform.
Jean-Pierre Laisne's insight:

CompatibleOne is open-source at its core (with the company offering a commercially-supported version), meaning cloud service providers can link up with the project quite easily and open up their service APIs so they can be integrated in the platform, which offers most of the same management capabilities – fully automated network, compute and storage resource allocation, self-healing capabilities and VM migration – in a single pane.
