Cloud orchestration software vendor Flexiant has raised £3m (roughly $5m) to support
continuing expansion, including the launch of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator version 3. The latest release of its software introduces four new licensing models tailored to the hosting and service-provider market and designed to give companies of all sizes access to the product. The latest version also adds Bento Boxes, a new feature that delivers preconfigured application provisioning. Bento Boxes let service providers offer their customers prepackaged application stacks that are ready to share and deploy.
The 451 Take

Whichever way you look at it, Flexiant is proving itself in the market.
