Host.net Selects Embotics vCommander to Deliver IaaS
Embotics, the leading provider of platform-neutral, hybrid cloud management software, has partnered with Host.net to expand cloud capabilities to its enterprise customers acting as a natural extension of its IT operations.

As Gartner Analyst, Douglas Toombs, notes in his July 2015 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting North America Report "Cloud-enabled managed hosting brings cloudlike consumption and provisioning attributes to the traditional managed hosting market. It represents an evolution of a mature market in which the wide variety of offerings and capabilities means vendors must be chosen carefully."

The Host.net rollout of Embotics vCommander 5.5 enhances its Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering with self-service IT, while analyzing, orchestrating, governing and brokering across public and hybrid clouds. 

"Service providers are seeking alternatives to overly-complex solutions like VMware vCloud Director (vCD), VMware vRealize Automation (vRA /vCAC), Citrix CloudPlatform and CloudStack," Jay Litkey, Embotics President and Founder said. "Too many businesses have tried to deliver IaaS with forklift solutions that require extensive implementation and customization. Embotics provides a lower cost and easy to use solution with vCommander 5.5."

Host.net, a managed IT infrastructure service provider, offers dedicated and hybrid colocation/cloud solutions allowing their clients to move applications between platforms and easily transition apps to the cloud, both locally or across geo diverse locations. By managing their own backbone IP and MPLS network, they further position their clients for a better connection to cloud/colo infrastructure to deliver an enhanced end-user experience.

"Host.net has an incredibly robust storage platform offering highly available solutions with synchronously mirrored, blazing fast software and hardware with unsurpassed performance and reliability, so we select our partners carefully and strategically," said Lenny Chesal, CMO of Host.net. "To future proof our IT needs and offer scalable, self-service provisioning, and multi-tenant IaaS for our cloud customers, Embotics was the clear choice. We evaluated numerous options, but the ease of use, adaptability to changing business needs, increased agility and lowering of costs allows us to focus on our core competencies, making vCommander 5.5 the best tool for our cloud automation needs."
