Lanamark Introduces Hybrid Cloud Design Module

Lanamark Inc., a global provider of agent-less, Services-Oriented Analytics™ software for IT solution providers delivering desktop and data centre solutions across physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure, today announced availability of the Lanamark Hybrid Cloud Design Module™.

The new module enables cloud migration planning for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms such as Amazon EC2, Hosting.com and Terremark as well as traditional private cloud (server virtualisation) design with Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, Oracle VM and VMware vSphere.

Lanamark Hybrid Cloud Design Module enables cloud advisors and cloud providers to specify workload delivery, evaluate platform compatibility and compute solution design and pricing across public and private clouds. The new module is part of the Lanamark Suite Services Edition and is available to partners in the VAccelerate Partner Program.

“As companies embrace cloud computing to increase business agility and shift IT investments from a CAPEX- towards an OPEX-based model, they need to understand both commercial and technical dimensions of cloud-based solutions and services,” said Mark Angelo, CEO of Lanamark.

“Lanamark enables cloud providers and their channel partners to accelerate on-boarding of customers by taking the guesswork out of cloud infrastructure planning and design. By leveraging Lanamark Suite, cloud advisors can help customers understand the current state of their hardware and software assets, determine which workloads are candidates for cloud migration and develop a blueprint for a public, private or hybrid cloud.”
