Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking, has tied-up with Crayon to offer Array’s application delivery controllers on a ‘pay as you use’ software subscription basis, which is first of its kind in India.
With the availability of ADC as software, the service providers will be able to ramp up quickly and address the market effectively.
“Partnership with Array Networks is coming at exciting times as the global SaaS market is set to grow quickly. Array has the product portfolio along with a flexible approach which is tuned to the market needs. They also have globally proven reliability with leading cloud providers, enterprises, and the public sector,” said Vikas Bhonsle, CEO, Crayon Software Experts India Pvt Ltd. “Complimenting Array’s technological knowhow, Crayon has a vast channel network of service providers, system integrators and enterprise community who would greatly benefit from our offerings.”
With the projection of global SaaS market to grow from $49 billion in 2015 to $67 billion in 2018, the ‘pay as you use’ model will give access to a new market segment. This model will help cloud-based application service providers to get the best of both worlds: security that does not impact performance. Also, this will provide cost-effective new alternative for the enterprises looking for reducing capex by opting for opex model.
