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."

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
Smart Cities are here to stay, but for their promise to be delivered, the data they produce must not be put in new siloes. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mathias Herberts, Co-founder and CTO of Cityzen Data, will deep dive into best practices that will ensure a successful smart city journey.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
