Abiquo launched Abiquo Enterprise Edition 2.2 at VMWorld Europe 2012 in Barcelona, introducing pluggable architecture for storage integration with all major vendors.
The open architecture of the Abiquo cloud management platform is purpose built to integrate with any infrastructure, supporting all hypervisors and now provides iSCSI storage plugins that allow enterprise and service providers customers, third parties and storage vendors to create their own storage volumes.
Jim Darragh, CEO at Abiquo comments: “We are the only software provider that allows customers to build private clouds on their terms – and this applies to any hypervisor, any infrastructure and any storage through the pluggable iSCSI architecture. It means our customers can reuse existing hardware and take their own path to the cloud without risking the straightjacket of vendor lock-in or unnecessary investment in new infrastructure.”
The Abiquo 2.2 release also includes a range of customer-led features designed to enhance the award-winning usability of the user interface, reduce complexity and improve the operational efficiency of running a private cloud environment.
