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."

"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level. Security cannot be an after-the-fact afterthought, which is what it's become," stated Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer at Secure Channels, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
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 lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
