Whether simple or complex, the RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS will help EarthLink deliver the benefits of cloud computing, with minimal cost and complexity, to its full portfolio of business customers. As part of the agreement, RiverMeadow migrations will be bundled with EarthLink Cloud Hosting offers, to facilitate customer onboarding.
"The intricacy of migrating server workloads into the cloud can make the process difficult, time consuming and expensive," said Mark Shirman, President and CEO, RiverMeadow. "The RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS makes it fast, easy and affordable for businesses of all sizes to onboard into EarthLink Cloud Hosting accounts with a single, bundled SaaS platform."
