London, UK – June 25,2013 - Xtravirt, the company dedicated to virtualisation, today announced Xtravirt CloudStart™ EXPRESS, a structured 2 week consultancy engagement to rapidly identify the cloud technologies that will benefit enterprise organisations and assist in resolving their business challenges via cloud adoption.
Xtravirt has a pedigree in working with customers to deploy technology to meet business requirements. With many organisations asking how the cloud can benefit them, but not knowing where to start, Xtravirt has created CloudStart EXPRESS to answer those questions, and more. CloudStart EXPRESS provides a structured framework for identifying and adopting cloud services, ensuring that any risks are identified and mitigated. With security and compliance continuing to be a key concern for many organisations considering cloud, CloudStart EXPRESS provides guidance on how to secure the cloud, both from a technology and management perspective. As with any service provided by Xtravirt, CloudStart EXPRESS is vendor agnostic and provides an overview of relevant cloud services without any bias towards providers.
“We are seeing that many organisations are thinking about how the cloud can help their business, but they really don’t know where to start. As cloud is not just about technology, but a mindset change within the business, Xtravirt CloudStart EXPRESS will review their current environment, with all relevant stakeholders, and produce a high-level business justification to support the recommendations,” commented Gavin Jolliffe, co-founder and CEO, Xtravirt.
Clive Longbottom, Service Director, Quocirca, stated, “Before embarking on any new technology a review and assessment of both the business and technology impact is a pre-requisite in today’s complex IT world. Having an unbiased, vendor agnostic view will remove any of the marketing hype and, hopefully, provide a few ‘quick wins’ in the process.”
CloudStart EXPRESS is available today and further details can be found here.
Xtravirt will showcase CloudStart EXPRESS at the Cloud World Forum, 26-27 June on stand 2045, and will be offering a 25% discount to companies that sign up on the day. Clive Longbottom, industry analyst, will be available on the stand on 26 June to discuss cloud challenges and issues with visitors.
