SHREWSBURY, N.J., Aug. 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterCloud Systems (Nasdaq:ICLD), a single-source provider of end-to-end information technology (IT) and next-generation network solutions to the service provider (carrier) and corporate enterprise markets through cloud platforms and professional services, announced today that it has become a premiere partner with RiverMeadow Software™. RiverMeadow technology solves the challenge of migrating large, complex workloads into and between Cloud environments. This partnership is key for InterCloud as it will provide further maturity and capability in service delivery to offer its customers in the Software Defined Enterprise and Cloud-to-Cloud mobility space.
InterCloud Systems and RiverMeadow are working to help businesses achieve greater efficiencies in their IT infrastructure operations. By leveraging RiverMeadow's SaaS, InterCloud Systems will be able to help customers migrate workloads into and between public, private and hybrid clouds. RiverMeadow's Secure Direct Migration (SDM) methodology is ideal for a multitude of cloud migration use cases and particularly for private and hybrid cloud moves including these to name a few:
Live Hypervisor Upgrades: Batch migrate workloads to upgrade them all at once in an abbreviated timeframe while minimizing production downtime.
vBlock Migrations: Perform many migrations in a short period of time with minimal downtime to upgrade an existing vBlock infrastructure, lowering project risk.
Standardization of Computing Platforms: For M&A purposes, this scenario allows a business to migrate to a standard hypervisor platform upon acquisition and deploy to different hypervisor/cloud platforms upon divestiture.
InterCloud's President, Frank Jadevaia stated, "Our mission is to partner with our customers in building a next-generation cloud-centric IT ecosystem. To that end, Gartner estimates that the cloud computing market will grow from $68.3 billion to $148.8 billion by 2015, and RiverMeadow offers industry-leading technology solutions, to support our mission of delivering cloud mobility.
Furthermore, today's business dynamic enterprises require a robust and agile IT organization. Cloud-centric solutions and services empower next generation IT organizations to deliver high-impact business transformation. InterCloud prides itself on having a highly certified VMware team of experts delivering cloud-centric IT strategy, implementation, and integration solutions and services to enable software defined enterprises.
"As Cloud matures, more and more businesses are adopting private and hybrid cloud strategies," said Richard Scannell, executive vice president of corporate development at RiverMeadow Software. "Being able to securely and effectively move workloads into and between these environments and dissimilar platforms is a critical requirement. InterCloud provides both the secure business grade cloud platform and professional services expertise to serve the needs of the business cloud market."
