Dimension Data Canada pushing cloud migration


Dimension Data made a series of cloud service announcements focused on cloud migration.

The company launched a new cloud readiness service designed to address four critical aspects of cloud computing: business alignment, organization, infrastructure, and applications. The service will provide a holistic view of where clients stand in the cloud deployment cycle; and a roadmap to help them realize cloud benefits for the long-term.

On Monday, Dimension Data announced a membership in the Riverbed Authorized Support Partner Program (RASP). There are only a few RASP solution providers in the world today. With RASP, Dimension Data can now provide support services for clients optimizing cloud networks and applications with Riverbed performance solutions. Also, Dimension Data’s Network Optimization Assessment is based on Riverbed Cascade network performance management and enables informed network planning for cloud and other deployments.

Steve Nola, CEO of Dimension Data’s Cloud Solutions Business Unit, said the lack of a long-term cloud strategy can result in costly rearchitecture and reintegration measures down the line. Dimension Data can now help organizations to build a cloud roadmap that preserves business agility and operational efficiencies even as their business needs evolve.
