London, United Kingdom, 2012/04/02 - Nephos Technologies, opens its business operations today in London, providing Cloud Service Brokerage to the European commercial market - NephosTechnologies.com.
Nephos Technologies is a new type of Service Provider defined as Cloud Services Brokerage (CSB), which involves adding services to vanilla offerings from Cloud Providers such as Monitoring, Security, Management and Analytics. The company’s management platform enables Nephos to look at the Cloud market and make real-time decisions as to which provider is the most appropriate for a customer’s requirement and then move them to that provider.
“Nephos Technologies has developed a Cloud Brokerage service that looks to solve the problems of independent advice, Provider lock-in and compliance for Organisations looking at moving to Cloud. Our management platform is one of the most advanced on the market and gives us the ability to aggregate multiple Providers, migrate the customer to the most appropriate and then monitor and manage the environment on an on-going basis” said Michael Queenan, Co-Founder and Director of Nephos Technologies
Research firm Gartner expects the market for Cloud Services Brokerage to increase from just $50m in 2010 to $5bn in 2014, with $1bn coming from the UK market, and predict that it will be fastest growing cloud service during this period. “A successful cloud computing strategy often involves customizing services from one or more vendors. One way to do this is through an intermediary service provider: a Cloud Services Brokerage. A CSB can make it easier to consume and maintain cloud services, while reducing the cost and risk encountered when an enterprise tries to address these issues alone”, Says an analyst at the market research firm.
Nephos Technologies will be delivering the following services to its customer:
1. Selection: help in selection, price finalisation, check if service is compliant with local laws
2. Integration: of various services across different vendors
3. Customisation: of services based on the business process and business objectives
4. Aggregation and arbitrage: ensure that all cloud services are available under one roof and enable switching between providers
5. Service delivery: help in SLAs, technical issues, billing and other problems
6. Reduce risk: by ensuring strict authorization and access. Security and compliance
7. Enrichment: Value adds such as Monitoring, Security, Backup and Management.
With a number of successful customer deployments on the management platform already in the US and the announcements of more and more partners being supported shortly, Nephos plans are to have the largest Cloud ecosystem and to become the name synonymous with Cloud Brokerage in the UK.
