Ormuco’s cloud solution offers rapid deployment and cost savings to enterprises that want a simple way to manage workloads while addressing gaps in traditional hyperscale cloud models, including performance, security and compliance.


ESPOO, Finland, August 31, 2017— Montreal-based Ormuco, in collaboration with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and ALSO, today launched a fully managed cloud computing service in Finland that offers enterprise customers, service providers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and resellers true workload portability in an open, vendor-neutral, hybrid cloud environment.

Ormuco Stack, offers a full-featured, turnkey cloud platform that works seamlessly across public and private environments and addresses security and data sovereignty requirements, enabling businesses in Finland and around the world to choose where and how their applications are deployed and data stored.

Ormuco Stack is now available to value-added resellers (VARs) and service providers (SPs) in Finland on the ALSO Cloud Marketplace, through select HPE partners, and from the HPE-sponsored Cloud28+ community.  

With Ormuco Stack, VARs, SPs and ISVs can offer their enterprise customers a public cloud experience—easy, convenient and self-service—inside their own datacenters. Ormuco Stack also allows enterprises to burst seamlessly from on-premises to off-premises managed clouds when workloads demand it, without having to worry about complex integrations. Ormuco Stack offers this because the architectures of the on-premises cloud and the off-premises cloud are fully compatible.

With Ormuco Stack, ALSO customers can configure private or hybrid cloud platforms for their clients with a pay-per-use or a term commitment model. The solution is delivered from ALSO’s Tier 3 TUV-Certified datacenters operated in 12 European countries, supported by HPE infrastructure. Fully managed and updated by Ormuco, the platform is engineered around OpenStack RESTful APIs and achieves operational excellence through artificial intelligence (AI), automation and machine learning, thereby ensuring scalability, efficiency and cost optimization.

Ormuco CEO Orlando Bayter said, “Ormuco Stack is a ‘have it your way’ solution, meaning enterprise customers are able to have convenience, flexibility, security, compliance and optimal performance no matter where they run their workloads and store their data. Ormuco Stack ends the debate about public or private—the best of both worlds is available in a single stack, on premises or off, all managed through a single pane of glass. Plus, with Ormuco Stack, there’s no more month’s long path to deployment or hassle-laden management burden. There is just intelligent, economical cloud made simple. We are delighted to join with our exceptional partners, HPE and ALSO, in bringing this service to Finland.”
