Today in Cloud

Scottish cloud infrastructure company, Flexiant, has released a new version of their Extility cloud infrastructure solution. Providing cloud infrastructure since 2007, Flexiant launched Extility in 2010 and has seen some success selling this to managed service providers in Europe and elsewhere. Today’s release sees the existing Service Provider Edition joined by a more lightweight (and cheaper) Foundation edition… and an option to download and run this free of charge for up to three months. Like others in the space, Flexiant can struggle to help customers understand the potential of a complex product. Free trials of various kinds are one welcome way in which potential customers can kick the tyres, but there can still be an uphill struggle to get customers to invest enough time, effort, and thought to ensure that they really grasp what they’re being offered.
