ShapeBlue, headquartered in London (UK), are the world’s largest integrator of CloudStack based IaaS environments. They have offices in London, Mountain View (CA), Brazil, India and South Africa.
Haijiao Lv, Director of Innovation Center, said: “We are delighted to be working with ShapeBlue to deliver these products and services for our market. Choosing an opensource IaaS platform is key to our long-term strategy. There are some obvious choices in this space, but key to us is that the open source project is not controlled by a group of major vendors with their own individual commercial objectives. We want to work from a well-established opensource code base and not be tied to a vendor’s particular fork.
By choosing Apache CloudStack, we have assurance that the project will be around for the long-term. CloudStack also gives a stable, massively scalable and production proven platform that can quickly and easily deployed by our enterprise customers, and we are able to collaborate with the many other organisations already running Cloudstack in production”.
On choosing to partner with ShapeBlue Haijiao Lv commented: “After deciding on the Cloudstack platform, ShapeBlue were a natural technology partner for us to choose as they have more knowledge and experience implementing and supporting Cloudstack in production environments than any other company”.
The partnership will see the companies collaborating on professional services, support, training & certification and development of tooling for enterprise & hybrid cloud customers. They will also be supporting the growing Chinese Cloudstack developer community.
Giles Sirett, CEO of ShapeBlue commented: “I am very excited about this partnership with Teamsun. Partnering with a company with such an established presence and reputation in China is a great way for us to enter that market. It is also fantastic to see the momentum that Apache CloudStack is developing in China”.
