RiverMeadow and cloudTP Enter Into Strategic Alliance to Deliver Rapid Cloud Migration Services to Enterprise Customers

Developer of enCloud(TM) Automated Virtualization and Cloud Migration Software Platform Joins Forces With the Leader in Transforming Businesses With Cloud Solutions to Make Enterprise Cloud Migration an Easy and Affordable Reality

WESTFORD, MA and BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/12/12 -- RiverMeadow Software Inc., developer of the enCloud automated virtualization and cloud migration software platform, and Cloud Technology Partners™ Inc. (cloudTP™), the leader in transforming businesses with cloud solutions, today announced a strategic alliance that will dramatically ease and accelerate enterprises into-and-between clouds while keeping costs at a minimum.

The two companies already have a successful track record in working with global clients. Collaborating on a project at Korea Telecom, cloudTP and RiverMeadow successfully migrated over one thousand physical servers to the cloud in just three months. The combination of cloudTP's unique transformational service approach and the enCloud software platform's unmatched ability to migrate servers and live-workloads as-is drastically minimized the cost and complexity typically associated with large datacenter migration projects. The result was an accelerated time to production without any service interruption.

"Working with cloudTP aligns RiverMeadow with an industry leader in strategic cloud transformation and tactical execution. Through their strategic transformation consulting and application implementation services, they deliver incredible value and efficiencies to enterprise clients seeking to migrate to the cloud," said Mark Shirman, President of RiverMeadow. Shirman continued, "cloudTP's deep expertise in enterprise cloud transformation requirements makes them an ideal partner."

"enCloud will enable cloudTP to more easily and affordably migrate enterprise datacenters into public, private and hybrid clouds," said Chris Greendale, Founder and CEO, Cloud Technology Partners (cloudTP). Greendale added, "cloudTP's transformational services are enhanced by the enCloud platform's flexible cloud deployment capability which provides the enterprise with the agility required to optimize their cloud lifecycle strategies."

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...
Logs are continuous digital records of events generated by all components of your software stack – and they’re everywhere – your networks, servers, applications, containers and cloud infrastructure just to name a few. The data logs provide are like an X-ray for your IT infrastructure. Without logs, this lack of visibility creates operational challenges for managing modern applications that drive today’s digital businesses.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

As we enter the final week before the 19th International Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in Santa Clara, CA, it's time for me to reflect on six big topics that will be important during the show. Hybrid Cloud: This general-purpose term seems to provide a comfort zone for many enterprise IT managers. It sounds reassuring to be able to work with one of the major public-cloud providers like AWS or Microsoft Azure while still maintaining an on-site presence.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
