  3. 3. Challenge 3Copyright 2007-2015 ALTEXSOFT AltexSofts client is a provider of cloud computing services for the federal, telecommunications and high performance computing markets. The company provides wholesale and private- labeled cloud infrastructure services to market leading organizations in the multi-system operators, telecommunications, and Federal markets. The clients idea was to build a cloud application to test a product hypothesis with minimal resources, and to get the product to customers as soon as possible. Time-to-market was very important. To provide rapid implementation, a solution was required which would better support their customer and partner facing business processes. The solution is for small and medium-sized cloud hosting retailers, which allows the integration of hosting billing solutions such as WHMCS with large cloud solutions providers like RackSpace, Amazon, Linode using a single user-friendly interface.
  4. 4. Solution As an independent and trusted advisor, AltexSoft has always aimed at recommending solutions that align with clients business needs and provide results in a timely manner. To lower its operating costs and speed up the new product development, it was decided to develop a MVP minimum viable product. The minimum viable product is a version of a new product which allows a company to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort. The product is typically deployed to a subset of possible customers, such as early adopters, who are thought to be more forgiving, more likely to give feedback, and are able to grasp a product vision from an early prototype or marketing information.

  5. 5. Implementation The MVP has been designed to be agile in deployment, massively scalable, hypervisor agnostic, and geographically redundant. The MVP integrated WHMCS billing system with a wide range of different cloud hosting services, such as Rackspace, Amazon AWS, Linode, Zerigo and so on. The WHMCS provisioning module works with different cloud service providers via a python-based layer using SOAP. The system provides a Yii-based management panel to small hosts that allows resellers to configure connections with different clouds and create product bundles that can be imported into WHMCS. AltexSoft was engaged in the full development lifecycle including requirement specification, architecture design, development and testing, and deployment. Copyright 2007-2013 ALTEXSOFT 5
