WALTHAM, Massachusetts – October 25, 2011 – mindSHIFT Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of IT outsourcing and cloud services to small and mid-size organizations, today announced that its cloudSHIFT℠ Server public cloud service has achieved VMware vCloud® Powered status, demonstrating that the company’s cloud services are underpinned by VMware’s leading virtualization and cloud computing technology, namely VMware vSphere® and VMware vCloud Director. A member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), the cloudSHIFT Server VMware vCloud Powered service enables SMBs to take advantage of mindSHIFT’s expertise, facilities and support to achieve all the benefits of server virtualization without the time, cost and resources required to deploy and maintain their own on-premise solution.
“We are pleased to have received this recognition from VMware for our cloudSHIFT Server service,” said Mona Abutaleb, mindSHIFT President and COO. “This underscores our commitment to providing a highly secure and scalable IT environment, based on industry-leading VMware technology, in which our clients can quickly adapt to changing market demands and IT needs.”
“The VMware vCloud Powered program was developed to enable our service provider partners to differentiate themselves and bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market in this competitive landscape,” said Don Schleicher, Vice President, Service Providers, VMware. “We look forward to supporting mindSHIFT further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in cloud computing.”
mindSHIFT customers are able to easily move workloads from their VMware vSphere-based virtualized or private cloud environment to the VMware vCloud Powered service and back again. This application portability is a key differentiator allowing customers to achieve the flexibility and security they need while enabling increased IT agility.
Whether organizations have on-premise servers which they currently manage themselves, are interested in moving all of their technology resources to the cloud or have a need for a hybrid solution, mindSHIFT’s cloudSHIFT Server solution can help eliminate the burden of day-to-day technology management and let organizations get back to the business of growing their business.
