2nd Watch Selects RiverMeadow to Expedite Cloud Migrations
2nd Watch will use RiverMeadow’s automated migration service to quickly and cost-effectively move clients’ data and applications to the public cloud.
Los Gatos, California (March 19, 2019) 2nd Watch, a leading managed cloud provider, announces a partnership with RiverMeadow, the multi-cloud migration software and managed migration services company, to automate the process by which 2nd Watch clients move data and applications into and between public, private and hybrid clouds. 2nd Watch and RiverMeadow will co-host a webinar about how they are helping large enterprises migrate quickly and cost-effectively to the public cloud. Persons interested in attending the webinar, which is slated for April 16, 09:00-09:30am PST can register here.
2nd Watch is the largest independently owned US-based cloud-native services provider, with over 200,000 cloud instances under management. Through its Cloud Migration Factory program, 2nd Watch has migrated some of the world’s largest brands to the public cloud, including Conde’ Nast, Yamaha and Coca-Cola North America. The 2nd Watch Cloud Migration Factory is a migration acceleration program designed to get companies up-and-running in the cloud fast, while maintaining business continuity. 2nd Watch’s Cloud Factory is a proven methodology from design and deployment through management.
RiverMeadow’s software will be used by 2nd Watch to augment the migration process. The RiverMeadow tool provides “agentless” migration to reduce setup and cutover times for production systems. It provides the ability to easily “lift and evolve” applications through API-based migration. 2nd Watch can add any script to the migration to apply security standards, upgrade operating systems, etc. 2nd Watch has used RiverMeadow to migrate critical systems with 100% success rate, including older UEFI sources.
“RiverMeadow is a great tool when agentless migration is preferred,” says Chris Garvey, EVP of Product at 2nd Watch. “The agentless model allows for a less intrusive migration and is ideal for large migrations that require a high success rate and can’t have much downtime/cutover. It’s also great for clients that are likely to need support for unconventional workloads. Partnering with RiverMeadow will help 2nd Watch deliver on its promise of reducing friction when migrating data and applications to the public cloud.”
“2nd Watch is a recognized leader in cloud migrations and management, and an ideal partner to RiverMeadow as we seek to help companies more quickly reap the benefits of the public, private and hybrid cloud,” says Jim Jordan, CEO at RiverMeadow. “We are excited to have been selected by 2nd Watch as its preferred tool for automated cloud migrations and look forward to supporting its work with large enterprises.”
