BERLIN -- July 2, 2013
Zimory, the Berlin-based experts on cloud management software has been chosen
as a strategic partner by Deutsche Boerse Group to deliver the cloud
technology for its newest venture the ‘Deutsche Boerse Cloud Exchange AG.’
Deutsche Boerse Cloud Exchange is creating the world’s first vendor neutral
marketplace for cloud computing capacities which will enable IT resources to
be traded like securities and energy, electronically, and within seconds. The
new company aims to launch initially a cloud computing spot market in the
first quarter 2014.
Zimory’s IaaS cloud management software will enable the settlement process of
the Deutsche Boerse Cloud Exchange, creating the physical connection between
buyers and sellers. The software is characterized by its open APIs,
scalability, multi-tenancy and decoupled architecture; delivering buyers and
sellers the flexibility and business agility required to trade compute and
store capacity securely. This neutral software enables consumers and sellers
to buy and sell capacity quickly and easily, without being locked into the
technology or offering of only one provider.
Zimory’s implementation for Deutsche Boerse Cloud Exchange will be
characterized by its openness to integrate other cloud management stacks and
standards. Standards will be applied to cloud computing infrastructure, making
services easy to compare and enabling users to distribute their applications
between multiple providers.
Deutsche Boerse Group has been managing transparent, reliable and secure
marketplaces for financial assets for many decades. This combination of
marketplace expertise and technological know-how form the backbone of Deutsche
Börse Cloud Exchange AG.
"Deutsche Boerse Cloud Exchange will fundamentally change how cloud computing
resources are bought and sold," said Ruediger Baumann, CEO of Zimory. "The
time when contract negotiations took months will be over for most businesses.
Standardizing IaaS offerings will revolutionize the cloud computing market in
a similar way to how the GSM standard changed cellular telephony. Cloud
services will be provided faster and in more varied ways. New cloud computing
industries, application areas and brokerage services will develop. The
necessary prerequisites for this new age of cloud computing are industry
standards for IaaS and a neutral, secure marketplace, which we are creating
together with Deutsche Boerse group."
Frank Strecker, SVP Cloud at T-Systems said: “The Deutsche Telekom Group
offers a wide range of cloud services. This exciting development in the cloud
marketplace will enable us to supply existing and new customer groups such as
SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) providers with globally standardized IaaS
products. This way we are able to offer tailor-made solutions for our
