SixPivot has signed a regional distribution agreement with rhipe, in a move designed to circulate its cloud management platform, Cloud Ctrl, across Asia Pacific.

Terms of the deal will see rhipe introduce Cloud Ctrl to customers both locally and regionally, while utilising its expanding cloud portfolio, which includes Microsoft Azure and IBM SoftLayer.

Cloud Ctrl is a multi-cloud service management platform, providing customers with insights in a bid to enable greater financial control for cloud subscriptions.

“We wanted to expand on our existing SixPivot relationship with rhipe and we have chosen to partner closely with them across APAC,” SixPivot CEO and Co-Founder, Faith Rees, said.

“Rhipe has a strong focus on enabling and supporting partners who are focused on delivering and managing cloud solutions for their customers.

“The rhipe business model strongly aligns to our own cloud first through channel strategy.”

Through embarking on an “aggressive roadmap” for the platform, Rees said more than 15 public providers will be added to the list of current providers, which includes Amazon Web Services, Google, Microsoft Azure and IBM SoftLayer.

Coupled with this, will be the future ability to provision a service across cloud providers, making Cloud Ctrl a “one of a kind” multi-cloud management platform.

“SixPivot is at the forefront of Azure innovation, and their solution Cloud Ctrl provides customers with greater financial control over their cloud subscriptions,” rhipe Managing Director and CEO, Dominic O’Hanlon, added.

“As the Cloud Channel company, this has great value and potential for our partners.”

Currently, Rees said uptake of Cloud Ctrl continues to increase, with Dilignet - a specialist cloud consulting and managed services provider - using the platform for over a year.

“Cloud Ctrl allows us to understand our cloud consumption costs in an unparalleled level of detail,” Dilignet Director, Peter Lillywhite, added.

“We can quickly calculate and forecast our costs at a per resource level to ensure that we are getting value from our current provider(s), or if we should move a workload elsewhere to drive cost efficiency.”
