Upland Software Selects Egenera Cloud Suite to Create and Manage their Internal Private Cloud
Solution enables developers and IT staff self-service access to resources
BOXBOROUGH, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Egenera, a leader in converged infrastructure and cloud management software, announced that Upland Software, a leading provider of cloud-based Enterprise Work Management applications, selected the Egenera Cloud Suite to help deploy and manage their internal private cloud that will be used to run their business applications as well as development environments where their software solutions are created.
“As Upland continues to grow, our locations and team members have become more distributed”
With Egenera Cloud Suite, developers can control the resources within their private cloud environment, so they are assured that they have the reserves and support they need to create quality software applications for their customers.
A primary component of Upland’s growth strategy is to acquire complementary technologies, products and businesses, and as a result, they accumulated a number of data centers that were distributed across the country. The company needed to unify these data centers so the resources could be viewed and managed in a holistic way as one unified pool of servers, I/O, networking and storage. Another key requirement was the ability to provide their developers and IT staff self-service access to those resources.
“As Upland continues to grow, our locations and team members have become more distributed,” said David Talbott, director of IT services at Upland Software. “We saw the need to pull our resources into a single management framework so we could deliver the highest quality software applications to our customers. Egenera’s Cloud Suite will help us achieve this goal given its ease-of-use, functionality and reliability.”
In order to manage its various data centers more efficiently, Upland decided to centralize the network with a cloud-based management system. After a review of various cloud management solutions, Upland chose the Egenera Cloud Suite because it was essentially a cloud-in-a-box solution that was fast and easy to deploy, and more importantly, its stateless computing capabilities allow developers and IT staff to dynamically run different application environments whenever they are required, and make changes to those environments as needed.
“We are excited to work with Upland Software to provide the framework and management capabilities for their internal private cloud needs,” said John Humphreys, vice president of marketing at Egenera. “Egenera is committed to working closely with its customers to ensure that the deployment and integration of its solutions goes smoothly and meets users’ expectations.”
