Solution provider Hostway this week released FlexCloud API, an application programming interface that supports Hyper-V in private, public and hybrid cloud deployments. The API, which is compatible with the OpenStack, open-source standard, helps partners and resellers build services on cloud platforms, Hostway said. Hostway customers can use the API to automate server provisioning, auto-scale servers up and down as needed, and integrate their services on an enterprise-class cloud.
Businesses with a private Hyper-V cloud can integrate Hostway’s FlexCloud Servers with their own servers to control their virtual machines, while Resellers can use the API to bundle and resell their own offerings with Hostway cloud services.
Hostway, of Chicago, Ill., was named this month to CRN's 2012 Partner Programs Guide and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating for its channel partner program.
