Wayra Barcelona, ​​Telefónica's open innovation hub, has signed an investment agreement with Abiquo to boost its Multicloud offering.

Abiquo is already collaborating with Telefónica to deploy a single unified cloud portal, which will help Telefónica’s clients to reduce the complexity of Multicloud management by reducing the barriers to governance, deployment, control, and workload operations in public and hybrid clouds.

The investment in Abiquo will help boost its multi-cloud service offering which is already available in Spain, to the rest of Telefónica’s operations in Latin America later this year. Initially, the service will provide access to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Telefónica's VDC service, bringing the opportunity to add other services of value, include private clouds and manage other hyperscale clouds, such as Google Cloud Platform, which has recently been added to the Telefónica Public Cloud service catalog.

Julian Vinue, Director of Wayra Barcelona
With this new investment, from Wayra we continue with our strategy of promoting the business development of our invested startups through Telefónica.

Jose Maria Cuellar, Global Director of the Cloud Unit, Telefonica
Our customers demand a complete multicloud offering, allowing them to use the most appropriate products and services from each cloud. For this reason, we have selected Abiquo to deploy the Multicloud Portal, offer value-added capabilities and manage the lifecycle of workloads, providing differential value in companies' journey towards the adoption of public clouds.
