Developer of enCloud(TM) Automated Virtualization and Cloud Migration Software Platform Joins Forces With the Leader in Transforming Businesses With Cloud Solutions to Make Enterprise Cloud Migration an Easy and Affordable Reality

WESTFORD, MA and BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/12/12 -- RiverMeadow Software Inc., developer of the enCloud automated virtualization and cloud migration software platform, and Cloud Technology Partners™ Inc.

The result was an accelerated time to production without any service interruption.

"Working with cloudTP aligns RiverMeadow with an industry leader in strategic cloud transformation and tactical execution. Through their strategic transformation consulting and application implementation services, they deliver incredible value and efficiencies to enterprise clients seeking to migrate to the cloud," said Mark Shirman, President of RiverMeadow.

"enCloud will enable cloudTP to more easily and affordably migrate enterprise datacenters into public, private and hybrid clouds," said Chris Greendale, Founder and CEO, Cloud Technology Partners (cloudTP). Greendale added, "cloudTP's transformational services are enhanced by the enCloud platform's flexible cloud deployment capability which provides the enterprise with the agility required to optimize their cloud lifecycle strategies."
