451 Research Report Names IndependenceIT Key Vendor in Cloud Workspace Management Sector

Boston, MA – January 5, 2015 – IndependenceIT, a leading software provider of simplified IT management solutions for application and DaaS delivery, today announced availability of a new Impact Report by 451 Research, titled IndependenceIT Delivers Improved WaaS Capabilities; Wins nGenx as New Service Provider. The report details how IndependenceIT has optimized management capabilities for superior Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) administration, supports fast provisioning across major cloud infrastructure providers and is winning major accounts such as nGenx from the industry’s top software vendors.

“IndependenceIT has defined a clear market value proposition relative to the major WaaS software platforms and for enterprises and service providers looking to leverage a multi-cloud WaaS strategy,” said Scott Ottaway, Senior Analyst, 451 Research. “We see rapidly increasing evaluation of WaaS at service providers by mid-market companies and enterprises as well as evaluation of hyper-scale cloud provider IaaS infrastructures for delivering WaaS offers. IndependenceIT is at the forefront of this trend, which we believe is helping drive the WaaS market revenue at double-digit growth rates.”

According to the 451 Research report, “IndependenceIT's strategy is focused on technology innovation, especially for multi-tenant and multi-cloud/datacenter scenarios. Its approach to rapid provisioning at scale, platform-agnostic service broker and out-of-the-box application and platform support simplifies the often-complex task of WaaS set up and application provisioning and de-provisioning. Its focus on service provider scenarios and agility at delivering new functionality will make it an attractive alternative for many service providers. Enterprises truly interested in a hybrid cloud approach with on-premises and hosted WaaS infrastructure are a unique opportunity also.”

Cloud Workspace® Suite (CWS) is unique in its ability to rapidly provision all elements necessary for automated application and desktop service delivery. The platform is built for infrastructure and hypervisor independence to provide flexible deployment, management simplicity and end-to-end utilization. CWS’s “Bring Your Own Cloud” architecture supports a variety of cloud IaaS options that includes Amazon Web Services, Google Compute Engine, Microsoft Azure and Artisan Infrastructure, allowing users to architect solutions matched to IT and business needs.

“The product differentiation of its third major release and its sales momentum with enterprises, medium size businesses and service providers—even against some of the top software vendors in the world – indicate to 451 Research that IndependenceIT has successfully transitioned to a key vendor in the WaaS management space,” added Ottaway.

“We remain focused on extending and innovating the management capabilities of CWS to simplify application and desktop administration for our customers,” said Seth Bostock, CEO, IndependenceIT. “With support for public or private cloud environments our hypervisor and protocol agnostic software is the most flexible on the market, supporting service delivery in any cloud environment without the complexity or cost of comparable solutions.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
