Many businesses, however, are having a difficult time integrating and managing their OpenStack platforms because they lack the proper tools and experience.

For this reason, there is growing demand for streamlined OpenStack services from enterprise cloud providers like Unitas Global, a company that designs, deploys and manages cloud-based solutions using secure, OpenStack hybrid clouds.

Unitas Global helps companies avoid traditional vendor lock-in and overcome challenges associated with building and operating production-grade cloud environments. The company offers Unitas Atlas™, a unified 24x7x365 monitoring platform that provides full support and visibility for managing the performance and health of customers’ IT environments. The company also boasts a team of dedicated, expert OpenStack developers and avid supporters who work tirelessly to create OpenStack solutions that are flexible and scalable.

Unitas Global was recently named to CIOReview’s “20 Most Promising OpenStack Solution Providers 2016” list. The annual survey identifies companies that are at the forefront of the sector, providing OpenStack solutions that positively impact the IT marketplace.

“We’re pleased to announce Unitas Global as one among the ‘20 Most Promising OpenStack Solution Providers 2016,’” stated Jeevan George, Managing Editor of CIOReview. “Unitas’ purpose-built cloud architecture, management expertise and global operations have proven to enable enterprises to take advantage of the benefits that OpenStack provides while ensuring seamless adoption throughout a client’s IT organization.”

Grant Kirkwood, Founder and CTO of Unitas Global, also spoke about CIOReview’s recognition of the company’s OpenStack solution and its significance.

The rewards to enterprise organizations who adopt cloud technologies are many, enabling growth, automation, and innovation across all industries,” noted Grant Kirkwood, Founder and CTO of Unitas Global. “Because most companies still lack the expertise required to build and operate OpenStack clouds, Unitas is able to provide an adoption strategy best suited for their applications, team, and processes. We are pleased that CIOReview recognizes that Unitas Global removes the challenges associated with OpenStack cloud deployment, enabling companies to remain focused on their core business rather than infrastructure.”

Unitas Global has also announced a new partnership with Solinea, an open infrastructure solutions provider. This partnership will help enterprises to get more out of their OpenStack environments, without experiencing any of the typical challenges. Together, Unitas and Solinea will help enterprises build step-by-step modernization plans, which are vital for evolving from legacy networks and processes to modern cloud and open source environments driven by DevOps and Agile processes.
