(The Hosting News) – RISC Networks is proud to announce its official partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), a global leader in the cloud computing arena. With this new partnership, RISC Networks can offer AWS clients the technology they need to support their platforms.
“AWS is the leading cloud IaaS provider on the cusp of new global frontiers. They offer clients affordable, accessible and flexible options on-demand,” says RISC networks chief analyst and CEO Jeremy Littlejohn.
“Becoming an AWS Technology Partner places us on the forefront of the cloud computing trend,” explains Littlejohn. “Now we can empower IT organizations to analyze their existing network environments — not only for a move to the cloud, but also to determine their actual IT needs — through strategic planning, cloud workload analysis and cloud migration.”
It’s this demand-driven service that best suits the focus of RISC Networks’ CloudScape platform. The platform is designed to help companies both large and small assess their cloud computing needs. With CloudScape, IT managers can figure out their actual workload performance and build a migration plan based on the usage of their environment. As the company’s needs change, RISC’s clients are poised to respond quickly, enabling a successful transition to AWS due to the analytical capabilities built into the CloudScape Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Platform.
As the cloud computing market moves out of its infancy, strategic partners must be especially careful about their choices, reports Gartner, Inc., a leading IT research and advisory firm. Virtual data storage centers, delivered as a third-party service, is a maturing industry. And AWS is the industry leader with the broadest range of offerings. This new partnership is a win-win for everyone, from solution providers to consultants to IT managers and their companies.
RISC Networks rolled out CloudScape in early 2014 and has since been building momentum, attracting cloud migration developers, leading solution providers, and business leaders seeking an easier way to migrate workloads into the cloud environment. CloudScape is a Cloud Computing Readiness and Planning analytics platform adaptable to a wide range of uses and customers, particularly now, as more and more businesses explore a transition to cloud computing. CloudScape is also available within the Amazon Web Services Marketplace.
