Siaras and Talligent Partner to Bring Advanced Federation and Billing to Carrier Class Hybrid Clouds

OPENSTACK SUMMIT, VANCOUVER, BC, MAY 18, 2015Siaras and Talligent today announced a partnership under which the companies will ensure interoperability for their cloud service provider (CSP) customers. Siaras cloudScape provides carrier class hybrid cloud management for cloud footprints encompassing a broad array of dissimilar hosted private and public clouds along with requisite intercloud connectivity. Talligent OpenBook creates an independent and detailed historical record of cloud configuration and tenant resource consumption along with sophisticated cloud billing on a per-tenant basis. Together, the Siaras and Talligent solutions allow CSPs to offer advanced “meta cloud” services to their enterprise customers: cloud services incorporating a diverse spectrum of underlying data center assets yet providing a single, open northbound interface for control and billing purposes.

According to Vivek Ragavan, Siaras co-founder and CEO, “We’ve long maintained that the benefits associated with our OpenStack-based hybrid cloud management solution, both for our CSP customers as well as their own enterprise customers, are significantly enhanced by the large set of companies innovating in the OpenStack space. Talligent is precisely such an example. With advanced tenant-based billing, Talligent OpenBook provides an excellent solution for highly complex mixed OpenStack and non-OpenStack hybrid cloud environments.”

Sanjay Mishra, Talligent founder and CEO added, “Partnering with Siaras creates an opportunity for our solution that, frankly, may be surprising to many people in the OpenStack community. With the Siaras cloudScape approach we’re able to collect usage information from, and provide billing data for, OpenStack and non-OpenStack cloud data centers alike.”

The Siaras cloudScape carrier-class hybrid cloud management platform exposes an OpenStack northbound interface to applications while providing both OpenStack and non-OpenStack southbound interfaces. Non-OpenStack clouds that can be managed through cloudScape include VMware, Amazon Web Services (AWS), IBM SoftLayer, and Microsoft Azure, with more being added on a regular basis. Siaras cloudScape also orchestrates traffic managed intercloud WAN connectivity within the meta cloud.

OpenBook by Talligent provides a complete tenant lifecycle and billing solution for OpenStack. Building on a comprehensive historical record of cloud configuration and resource details, OpenBook automates key onboarding steps and provides tenant self-service capabilities expected from an IaaS service. CIO dashboards and reports provide detailed views of resource consumption, tenant growth, cost allocation, and revenue forecasts.
