Jamcracker Augments its Cloud Brokerage Platform to Include Multi-cloud and Hybrid Cloud Management Solutions

Unifying cloud services management needs for SaaS, PaaS and IaaS

SANTA CLARA, California, Dec 14, 2016 – Jamcracker, Inc., a leading provider of Cloud Services Brokerage (CSB) solution, today announced that it has added full support for infrastructure as a service (IaaS) Cloud Management Platform (CMP) functionality for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud services environments. Hence, Jamcracker is the first platform in the industry to unify cloud services management needs for SaaS, PaaS and now IaaS, offering a holistic cloud services enablement solution across all flavors of cloud services.

With the enterprise organizations transforming traditional IT to cloud based IT-as-a-service (ITaaS) model, there is a critical need to unify many of the cloud services management functions such as aggregation, onboarding, catalog, self-service fulfillment, access management, billing, invoicing, settlements, SLA monitoring, reporting and services analytics. Offering a single pane of glass and consistent user experience in managing cloud services of all flavors is important to make IT productive. Driven by customer needs, Jamcracker Platform has evolved from being a cloud broker to now a complete cloud services lifecycle manager.

Gartner’s 2016 CMP Market Guide for CMP outlines following functional requirements to address IaaS management customer needs. Jamcracker Platform addressed these by adding following key CMP features to existing cloud brokerage platform:

Access Management

  • Multi-tiered Marketplaces
  • Self Service Portal
  • Multi-Tenancy & User Management
  • Identity Platform Integration
  • Governance (RBAC, Budgets, Approval Workflow)

Service Management

  • Services Catalog
  • Service Onboarding
  • Usage Analytics
  • Financial Management
  • Compute, Network, Storage across Public and Private CSPs
  • Image Management, VPC, Volumes and Snapshots Support

Service optimization

  • Policy Control
  • Multi-cloud, Inter-Cloud Support

Mahendra Soneji, Vice President of Product Management and Customer Success at Jamcracker said: "The key value proposition of a CMP is enabling multi-cloud management to apply policy, orchestrate, and automate provisioning across public and private clouds. For the past two years, we have been working with our key customers to build CMP features into our platform. We have learnt from real customer requirements and pilots to understand broader market needs and perfect our platform features to address key CMP requirements. We are very excited to see that our updated platform is being deployed successfully by our partners to meet their internal and external customer needs."

Malaysia's leading fully Integrated Managed Connectivity / Information and Communications Technology (ICT) / Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services provider, VADS Berhad (VADS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM), an existing partner of Jamcracker, is looking forward to using the latest CMP update of Jamcracker Platform to offer multi-cloud and hybrid cloud managed services which comprise public cloud services including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and private cloud services including VMware vCenter and vCloud Director and OpenStack hosted in VADS’s own data centers.

Mahmoud Dasser, Vice President of Partnership and Marketing at VADS, said: "Jamcracker's cloud management platform consolidates multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments demanded by our large and small enterprise customers.
