The Armada Group and Cloud.com Announce Services Partnership

Written by
SANTA CRUZ, CA, May 17, 2010 -The Armada Group, a premier Silicon Valley-based professional services firm, and Cloud.com, a pioneer in cloud infrastructure management software, today announced a joint agreement to enable customized professional services for Cloud.com customers. Under the agreement, Cloud.com customers will have access to cloud computing professional services expertise from The Armada Group, including infrastructure analysis, proof of concept, installation, integration and training services.

According to Gartner, cloud computing will be so pervasive that one-fifth of all businesses will own absolutely no IT assets come 2012. However, ensuring effective integration of cloud applications with existing infrastructure can be challenging. Cloud.com worked with Armada to design the customized professional service offerings in an effort to eliminate the hype and confusion surrounding cloud computing and ensure fast access to all of the cost and efficiency benefits that cloud can offer.

Kyle MacDonald, Chief Evangelist of Cloud.com stated “The Armada Group makes a great professional services partner for Cloud.com given Armada’s extensive cloud experience and their significant investment in enabling cutting-edge cloud technologies. Our partnership with Armada enables enterprises to quickly deploy CloudStack Enterprise Edition with a complete lifecycle approach from project inception to deployment and beyond".

Vasanthan Dasan, CTO of The Armada Group said “Cloud.com represents a significant evolution in cloud computing, offering open source cloud solutions that enable simple and cost effective deployment, management, and configuration of cloud computing environments, regardless of where they are deployed. Armada is thrilled to be able to enable this revolution by easing and speeding deployment of Cloud.com’s cutting-edge solutions.”
