LONDON – OnApp has launched a new version of its OnApp Enterprise private cloud management solution that adds automated workflow management for enterprise IT departments. Available now in OnApp Enterprise v5.5, a new transaction approval and notification system allows enterprises to require management approval for a range of actions in their OnApp private clouds, helping them improve cloud governance, control costs and manage user access to IT resources.

With the new version of OnApp Enterprise, companies can configure any number of user roles to require approval for actions impacting cost, resource availability and application availability – for example, creating or deleting virtual servers, or adding resources to a virtual server. The new functionality builds on OnApp’s extensive Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) engine, catalog management and self-service UI to enable enterprises to deliver a highly-automated public cloud experience across one or more datacenters, safely within constraints set by IT and business management.


Also in OnApp Enterprise v5.5, OnApp has launched a new Service Insertion Framework, which enables enterprises to integrate third-party portals (such as helpdesks, finance systems and other SaaS products) directly into the OnApp cloud management UI. This further extends OnApp’s unified, ‘single pane of glass’ approach to cloud infrastructure management. It enables users to access multiple services through one control panel, via a single sign-on, while enabling companies to continue using third-party products they’ve already invested in, as a seamless part of their private cloud environment.

“OnApp Enterprise delivers turnkey private/hybrid cloud functionality with a ‘single pane of glass’ management interface that puts companies firmly in control of their IT resources and workflows,” said Narendar Shankar, President of OnApp Enterprise. “With OnApp Enterprise 5.5, companies can now control and report on access and costs, per user or per department, across multiple virtualization types and multiple cloud locations – as part of a seamless cloud orchestration, provisioning and management environment.”

OnApp Enterprise is a new range of solutions designed to transform price, performance and usability in the enterprise private cloud/hybrid cloud market. The first OnApp Enterprise solution combines OnApp’s comprehensive cloud management software stack with Intel® Data Center Blocks hardware to create turnkey private and hybrid clouds for SMEs and enterprises, delivered as a ready-to-run HCI (Hyper-Converged Infrastructure) appliance. Building on OnApp’s seven years of leadership in public cloud management platforms, OnApp Enterprise is an end-to-end solution that deploys in less than a day and is available at as little as a third of the cost of competing products.

OnApp Enterprise cloud appliances are available now from Intel® Technology Providers, including Iron Systems in the US, New Era Informatique Pvt Ltd in India, MultiTech in Argentina and Uruguay, Colsof in Colombia, Rectron in South Africa, and Hammer in Europe. More information is available at https://onapp.com/intel.

Link BuildingLink building has been frowned upon, in some ways, when it comes to SEO. However, it’s still a very important strategy and works great, when done correctly. Since you cannot just build a website, add some content and expect people to find it, link building and other SEO strategies have to be employed.

If you already have quality content designed for good on-page SEO, you just need to start building good links. Here’s a look at why you should use link building and how to go about using it.

What is Link Building?

An SEO term used to describe the process of having another website or blog link to your website or blog from inside the content is known as link building. This helps to earn you a better ranking on Google and other search engines.

They value quality links over quantity, so buying a link building package isn’t always a good idea. However, when you acquire trustworthy links from large, authority website, it can make a huge difference. Getting these types of links regularly, will help turn your own website into an authority site.

Value of Top Quality Links

SEO LinksHigh quality links do a few things for your website. First, they give you a source of traffic. Second, they provide SEO benefits. Third, they help you create a new relationship. Google sees all of this as good and will give you more respect because of your links.

There was a time when the quantity of links trumped everything. Today, it’s all about quality and one high quality link can be far better than hundreds of low quality links. Getting high quality links has to be the goal instead of just getting any links.

A high quality link comes from a site relevant to what your site is about. For example, if you run a web hosting site, it would make sense for an internet security site to link to information found on your site. However, it makes less sense for a store selling cookware to link to your site.

The other part of high quality links is the authority aspect. It’s far better for someone with high traffic that is seen as an expert to link to your site than just some part-time blogger with very little traffic.

Link Building = Relationship Building

You don’t have to contact other websites to start building relationships with top notch sites. Instead, you can link to them and drive traffic their way. When this happens, the webmasters at the site you linked to will fine your site and will link to you, if you have good content.

It’s not hard to build these relationships, but it does take time and effort. You have to link to other websites and blogs regularly in order to get these relationships moving in the right direction.

Getting Started

The process of link building starts with finding influencers in your industry. Then, you want to start linking to those influencers when it makes sense. You can even use social media to help find these influencers.

Along with linking to influencers, you should start commenting on their blog posts and start the conversation. This helps to get you in front of them and the rest will happen naturally, over time.

High Quality Content Only

ContentLetting links build naturally by creating relationships is a great way to gain better SEO. However, this strategy won’t work if you don’t put up high quality content on your blog and website. Make sure the content is relevant, helpful and easy to read.

With these tips, you can start using link building to find more traffic gain SEO benefits and build lasting relationships.
