FREMONT, CA:  CenturyLink, a cloud services and solutions provider, announces acquiring of ElasticBox, a multi-cloud application management services platform, to enable CenturyLink provide optimum delivery of end-to-end network, multi-cloud and hybrid IT services worldwide.

The acquisition combines the global network, hosting and delivery capabilities of CenturyLink with ElasticBox’s multi-cloud platform. Leveraging and improving ElasticBox’s hybrid cloud application management platform, CenturyLink aims to deliver enhanced end-to-end network, multi-cloud and hybrid IT services to customers globally.

ElasticBox enables enterprise IT organizations to orchestrate the deployment of applications and create a self-service catalog of applications and infrastructure. It provides orchestration for more than 12 cloud platforms, including Amazon Web Services, IBM's SoftLayer, Microsoft Azure and VMware. ElasticBox has newly added support for CenturyLink Cloud and more feature support for Google Compute Engine and OpenStack.

ElasticBox also supports Docker and Amazon ECS containers, and recently added Kubernetes as another destination for applications. These deployment options enable customers to package a range of applications into a container and manage it via ElasticBox.

"The acquisition of ElasticBox strengthens and enhances CenturyLink's development and deployment of multi-cloud services management capabilities, as well as our ability to deliver end-to-end network and hybrid IT services to business customers globally," says CenturyLink Chief Technology Officer, Aamir Hussain. "The ElasticBox multi-cloud management platform frees businesses to focus on issues that are central to their organization rather than spending time and resources managing multiple clouds."
