  • IIS Technology is Partner Ready Platinum Partner with a strategic relationship in place for almost 30 years. IIS solves complex IT problems across a wide range of industries and business challenges, but no matter the challenge, our business thrives on doing the right thing for the customers and partners who place their trust in us.

For customers faced with unlimited choices when it comes to cloud solutions, IIS simplified the decision through the creation of a turnkey solution

The Story: The challenge today is that there seems to be unlimited choice when it comes cloud solutions. Whether it is the public or private cloud or options that feel like cloud, many options exist for migrating away from the traditional data center. The smart cloud solution is one that provides the on-demand elasticity of the public cloud plus the data privacy, compliance and customization of the private cloud – all behind the corporate firewall. This solution must also provide a rich set of APIs and services that provides developers all the capabilities of developing in the public cloud. This solution should not require you to invest in expensive tools from virtualization or storage vendors to deliver a real cloud experience.

The Solution:  
IIS recognized this conundrum and need in the market. IIS seized this opportunity and began to collaborate with HPE software partner, and charter member of HPE’s Cloud28+ marketplace, Ormuco (based in Quebec, but WW scope). This alliance led to the creation of a turnkey solution – The Intelligent Cloud. This solution is designed for the services-oriented economy, providing the agility, automation, manageability and orchestration needed for enterprises to easily migrate to cloud architecture.

The impact: The turnkey solution titled “The Intelligent Cloud” is a combination offerings through IIS. It is powered by HPE Synergy - which focuses on composable infrastructure and how it can be used for a variety of applications and workloads. Then Ormuco addresses how application workloads access resources across hybrid cloud deployments. While Ormuco on HPE Synergy can scale on-premise to as many nodes as any other OpenStack solution, Ormuco on HPE Synergy is also a compact bundle for edge deployments.

This allows customers to work with IIS in order to take advantage of the services-oriented economy, provide the agility, automation, manageability and orchestration needed to easily migrate to cloud architecture.
