Cloud-enabled hosting industry leader Denis Martin provides guidance to promote adoption of the enCloudTM software platform in Cloud Service Provider IaaS ecosystems
San Francisco, CA – May 10, 2012 – RiverMeadow SoftwareTM, technology leader in virtualization and cloud onboarding software, today announced that Denis Martin, Chief Technology Officer at NaviSite, is joining the company's Industry Advisory Board. Martin will help RiverMeadow's executive management team accelerate the adoption of its cloud migration software, enCloudTM, as a core onboarding service in Cloud Provider IaaS ecosystems.
NaviSite, a Time Warner Cable Company, is a leading worldwide provider of enterprise-class, cloud-enabled hosting, managed applications and services. NaviSite provides a full suite of reliable and scalable managed services, including Application Services, industry-leading Enterprise Hosting, and Managed Cloud Services for enterprises looking to outsource IT infrastructure and lower capital and operational costs. Enterprise customers depend on NaviSite for customized solutions, delivered through a global footprint of state-of-the-art data centers.
"I am very excited about RiverMeadow, the enCloud software platform, and their business model," said Denis Martin. Martin added, "The key to cloud onboarding is enabling enterprise customers with the capability to migrate data centers and workloads to the cloud, as-is, with minimal cost and complexity.
