Ensim Unify Cloud Manager for Service Providers

Ensim Unify Cloud Manager enables service providers to leverage all of the functionality of the leading carrier-grade Ensim Unify platform, enabling resellers and organizations to efficiently and securely deploy and deliver a wide variety of cloud services. Ensim Unify Cloud Manager provides a complete, centralized, relational platform that manages creation, activation, configuration, and administration of cloud services and features multi-tenant enablement, automated provisioning, fine-grain privilege management, and delegated administration, along with robust resource and pool management for services providers, resellers, organizations and end users in a single solution.

Advanced virtualization management technology pioneered by Ensim enables system administrators to increase service levels and operational efficiencies by automating repetitive provisioning and management tasks and empowering users with policy based self-service, compliant, and secure capabilities. Ensim cloud solutions allow integration of service provider and enterprise class management tools, via a centralized, role-based, easy to use, web management interface.

Ensim Unify Cloud Manager line includes the following capabilities:


Virtual desktop management is an essential component of how applications and work environments are delivered to the end-users, whether via streaming apps, session based desktops, or hosted virtual machine desktops. Regardless of how the technologies are mixed and matched, service providers must provide the flexibility to allow access to a uniform user experience that is independent of location, endpoint, or network.  Providing the security of data hosted in a central location with the freedom for each user to have their own desktop at a vastly reduced price are just a few of the driving factors impacting the market in addition to a predictable budget and centralized management capabilities.

Ensim Unify Cloud Manager provides streamlined multi-tenant configuration with granular role based delegation while automating time consuming provisioning and management tasks, thereby ensuring that end users and system administrators gain all of the benefits of hosted desktop virtualization.  Ensim Unify Cloud Manager supports all three desktop delivery mechanisms that include; application streaming, session desktop, and virtual machine desktop.

Computing resource management is a vital requirement for all companies to control, secure, and maximize, in an efficient manner. In addition to server virtualization, private, public, and hybrid environments must be supported by service providers to remain competitive.  With many components, tools, and variations available today, service providers need a single platform that enables them to offer a wide variety of industry leading products and services.  Ensim Unify Cloud Manager provides server and computing management technology that allows service providers to automate the provisioning and management of datacenter or cloud based computing environments to resellers and organizations.

  • Microsoft Hyper-V

Cloud based applications can come from a variety of sources in and out of the datacenter. SaaS based applications such as SalesForce and Office 365 are typically resold by the service provider, but do not run in the service provider datacenter like other hosted applications such as Hosted Exchange and Hosted SharePoint. Cloud (SaaS) based applications and services allow service providers to avoid expensive infrastructure and capital investment, while lowering operational costs associated with on-premise infrastructure.  However, cloud based applications still need to be offered in a cohesive, bundled, automated, and controlled manner fitting in with other offerings from the service provider. Ensim Unify Cloud Manager enables service providers to deliver cloud based applications and services to their resellers and customers in a feature rich low risk manner with a wide variety of connectors for leading cloud applications.
