HyperGrid today announced its Software-Defined Cloud (SDC) strategy for its HyperCloud software platform; the only platform that integrates application management, intelligent cloud management and software-defined infrastructure services for private and public clouds. HyperCloud empowers customers to achieve digital transformation by enabling their journey to a cloud model. It enables them to cloudify existing assets, simplify operations, transform traditional applications, build modern workloads, and automatically optimize workload deployments by picking the best cloud. HyperCloud can quickly deliver consistent management and control of their prevailing public cloud environments to achieve simplicity, automation and intelligence.

HyperCloud's turnkey capabilities automate and simplify operations, make traditional applications cloud-friendly, and enable development of modern applications based on microservices that help users seamlessly and systematically get into a truly vendor-agnostic cloud model.  This announcement showcases HyperGrid's mission to help customers embrace a multi-cloud architecture for their business needs by minimizing the traditional barriers to cloud adoption such as integration, learning, and complex management.

"Multi-cloud use cases are increasing every year, which is making the use of multiple clouds very complex to manage. There is a clear need for a platform that spans private and public clouds, to help organizations to modernize and transform to the Cloud Era,'' said Henry Baltazar, Research VP Infrastructure at 451 Research. ‘'HyperGrid's cloud management platform enables organizations to intelligently manage workloads across all IT infrastructure in a single pane of glass."

HyperGrid also launched its latest release of HyperCloud, which introduces significant new capabilities for application management and analytics. These capabilities include:

  • Multi-tier workload modeling using blue prints for agile development and automation.
  • Real-time cloud cost analysis and optimization for cost management.
  • Intelligent workload placement recommendation engine across private and public clouds.
  • Flexible software deployment options that can be deployed on-premises and consumed as Software as a Service (SaaS) or as an appliance.

These advanced capabilities are powered by HyperCloud Analytics, which maintains real-time insights into tens of millions of combinations of instances in the various clouds. Customers can perform cost and budget management by eliminating guesswork and wastage when deploying workloads.

"Software Defined Cloud will disrupt the market in several notable ways. Key among these for MSPs is the manner to which it will fundamentally create new revenue models for service delivery, including both on-premises and public cloud services. This will further entrench the value we bring to our customers, as we become a trusted guide with HyperGrid on the journey to a multi-cloud model with the broadest support for cloud instances," Michael Boyle, Strategic Planning Director, Westin Building Exchange.  

HyperGrid further announced the availability of HyperCloud Analytics SaaS to help customers analyze their cloud spend and receive recommendations to reduce their costs. Customers can sign-up for a free trial at and upgrade to a fully functional version after the free trial. The company also announced broader ecosystem support for clouds and application environments for immediate integration of brownfield and greenfield environments into HyperCloud.

Until now, many organizations have been forced to embark on projects in an unplanned manner through public cloud silos or do-it-yourself point solutions that are expensive and time consuming.  For their cloud projects to succeed, enterprises need a single platform that delivers application management, cloud management and software-defined infrastructure services, and which is decoupled from the underlying cloud fabric - a Software-Defined Cloud strategy. This approach maximizes consistency, choice and flexibility, while minimizing change risk, vendor lock-in and overall costs.  With the broadest ecosystem of support for apps and clouds, HyperCloud truly unifies IT, DevOps and developer workflows on a single platform to achieve a collaborative approach to managing, deploying and monitoring traditional and modern apps across the broadest application environment and clouds.

"The Software-Defined Cloud builds on the key tenets of the cloud model, namely Application Transformation, Automation, and Agility, and helps MSPs and enterprises to grow revenue sources and avoid lock-in," said Manoj Nair, Chief Product Officer, HyperGrid. "Organizations need the automation, intelligence and flexibility to use the right cloud for the right workload, but easy ways to adopt the cloud model are missing today - point solutions exist but attempts to knit them together only result in increased complexity. Our unique approach brings all key capabilities for customers into a single technology stack to reduce risk, minimize operational overhead, and dramatically accelerate time to value for our customers."
