New York, NY. (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
ShoreGroup, Inc., a premier professional services and software solutions firm, today announced it has joined the Vblock partner ecosystem, a community of partners that are qualified to augment, resell, and deliver VCE’s Vblock Infrastructure Platforms as well as deliver services associated with Vblock platforms. VCE, the Virtual Computing Environment, formed by Cisco and EMC with investments from VMware and Intel, creates industry leading solutions for converged infrastructure and private clouds. ShoreGroup is one of only a handful of companies located in the Northeast with the technical expertise to link both, the business and technical understanding of service-oriented architecture (SOA), software-as-a-service (SaaS), network monitoring, cloud computing, and storage technologies.
ShoreGroup qualifies as a Vblock Qualified Partner through its investment in technical certifications and partner designations for all of the Cisco, EMC and VMware products that comprise the Vblock platform.
The Vblock Infrastructure Platforms bring network, compute, storage, virtualization, and management into one converged infrastructure. When combined with ShoreGroup’s CaseSentry® Management Platform and ShorePatrol® Remote Management Service solutions, a fully managed, integrated, and unique ‘private cloud’ offering is available extending automated monitoring and event recovery of an organization’s infrastructure platforms. With its integrated capability to correlate complex events across disparate platforms to provide the root cause of an incident, CaseSentry drives quicker resolution--critical to effective incident and problem management—and eliminates costly operational costs associated with hours spent on incident identification and triage.
“ShoreGroup is pleased to join an elite group of partners in the United States who are currently Vblock qualified,” said Jeff Ortolano, ShoreGroup’s Regional Sales Director. “The VCE certification validates our commitment, expertise, and continuing investments in cloud enablement and our mature Data Center Practice. As an authorized partner to deliver Vblock solutions, in addition to ShoreGroup’s Cloud Readiness Assessment Services, Cloud Support Services and CaseSentry Management Platform, ShoreGroup is well suited to create information technology models specific to the needs of each unique organization.”
“SOA, SaaS, and cloud technologies offer benefits in resiliency, scalability, SLA reporting and compliance management as well as providing a model to help align technology with the strategic direction of their business,” said Barry Katzman, ShoreGroup’s Director of Sales Engineering. “When coupled together, these technologies enable an organization to achieve an accelerated return on their investment while positioning them to capitalize on the benefits of moving to the Cloud. Our customers are aware that migrating to the cloud is complex, with significant implications to their business across operations and IT. ShoreGroup’s Cloud Support Services are designed to help clients reduce cost, move faster and manage risk effectively.”
The Vblock Infrastructure Platform is the industry’s first completely integrated, tested, and validated IT infrastructure offering that combines best-in-class virtualization, networking, computing, storage, and management technologies with end-to-end vendor accountability. Vblock supports a broad range of operating systems and applications that enable customers to rapidly migrate existing applications to a virtualized environment.
