DirectNetworks Selects ASG’s CloudFactory to Advance its Clients to the Cloud


ASG Software Solutions today announced that DirectNetworks, Inc., a privately held, IT solution provider, has chosen ASG’s end-to-end cloud management suite, CloudFactory, to create its cloud-based workplace, DirectCloud Webtop.

After testing everything from VMware View to Citrix Xen Desktop, only CloudFactory gave DirectNetworks the kind of flexibility it needed for its SMB clients. It allowed customers to transplant their IT operations to the cloud with minimal disruption and adjustment and is already showing 20-30 percent cost savings and 30-50 percent efficiency gains. CloudFactory was also able to satisfy DirectNetworks’ strict vendor-agnostic and software ownership requirements, easily integrating with the Citrix and Microsoft components of Webtop while also allowing the company to manage the solution entirely from within its own data centers.

“ASG’s CloudFactory solution was not only able to address all of our pain points, but, most importantly, everything was completed within our budget and roll-out timeframe of just three months,” said Colin Mehlum, partner and business development, DirectNetworks, Inc. “We recognized that cloud computing was quickly becoming an essential element of any successful, modern IT strategy, so the development of Webtop was crucial to both our customers and our survival as a company. But, without CloudFactory, Webtop simply would never have been possible. ASG really treated us like a partner in helping us reach our goals, and its innovative cloud suite has been a crucial element of our company’s vision and success.”

With CloudFactory, ASG was able to help DirectNetworks incorporate a single workspace for users to access and provision all of their applications and services, while advanced service orchestration and automated infrastructure lifecycle management is conducted in the background within DirectNetworks’ data centers. Now, DirectNetworks can provide its clients with all of the increased cost savings, mobility and productivity that come inherent with the cloud. And, by including cloud-based storage, servers and virtual desktops, DirectNetworks can help its clients future-proof their operations while increasing data accessibility and reducing costly hardware, software and in-house support.

“We are just as invested as DirectNetworks in helping them grow their business, so are pleased to see the significant role CloudFactory has played in the success of Webtop,” said Victor Paul Fiss, vice president cloud delivery, ASG Software Solutions. “DirectNetworks wants to shoulder its clients’ burden of trying to constantly adapt to increasing technology advancements. And, to know that CloudFactory played a role in that goal, and is helping advance companies’ computing infrastructure to the cloud, is an achievement in and of itself.”
