Fremont, CA (Vocus) July 30, 2010
Grid Dynamics, the authority on cloud computing deployments and enterprise systems scalability, has signed a partnership agreement with Burstorm, which helps enterprises select best-of-breed Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud providers.
As the initial wave of concern about cloud security and instability passes, and private and public clouds are increasingly used to enable elasticity of enterprise systems, Grid Dynamics has seen an increasing number of projects that require careful selection of third party IaaS cloud providers.
Burstorm helps these companies evaluate and select the best providers, and negotiate long-term sourcing contracts with them. The company’s recent focus has been on IaaS cloud services.
Burstorm customers frequently need expertise at the middleware or application level, in which Grid Dynamics has deep expertise. At the same time, Grid Dynamics customers are often looking for the best options in IaaS. Together, Grid Dynamics and Burstorm will help meet the needs of both companies’ customers and will refer customers to each other.
“Every day, you hear about a new IaaS provider entering the market or a new service being offered by one of the existing ones,” noted Boris Renski, EVP at Grid Dynamics. “Because the majority of our projects today involve building clouds or cloud-enabling existing enterprise applications, Burstorm’s expertise in helping enterprise customers manage the purchasing cycle of infrastructure cloud offerings will be extremely valuable to our cloud practice.”
Grid Dynamics clients today include the likes of Cisco, eBay, Agilent, and other industry leaders.
“We invest many resources to constantly monitor the IaaS provider market and help our clients get the best value,” explained Brandon Abbey, CEO of Burstorm. “However, our focus is primarily on the physical infrastructure. This partnership with Grid Dynamics compliments our infrastructure knowledge with middleware and application level expertise, enabling us to provide a complete end-to-end solution to our customers.”
Burstorm customers include PortsAmerica, Complete Genomics, Adaptec, and JDA Software, to name a few.
