Burwood Group Accelerates Cloud Management Practice by Standardizing on HyperGrid’s Breakthrough HyperCloud™ Platform

Leading U.S. IT Consultancy Leverages HyperGrid’s Intelligent Cloud Management Platform to offer Application Development and Deployment, Governance, and Cost Control Services across Public, Private, and Hybrid Clouds

San Jose, Calif. – June 6, 2018 – HyperGrid, the market leader in Intelligent Cloud Management, announced today that Burwood Group, a leading IT consulting firm and cloud services provider, has standardized its Cloud & Automation practice area on the HyperGrid HyperCloud™ Platform, the only platform that integrates application management, intelligent cloud management and software-defined infrastructure services for private and public clouds. Leveraging the HyperCloud platform, Burwood Group is developing new services for the management of public and private clouds; cloud security, governance and control; and cost optimization.

“After evaluating several cloud management platforms, the robustness of the latest release from HyperGrid quickly made it rise to the top,” said Chris Pond, President of Burwood Cloud Services at Burwood Group. “With HyperCloud, and the fact that HyperGrid has proven to be a true partner, we can quickly design, launch, and sell new services on public clouds like Google Cloud Platform (GCP), AWS and Microsoft Azure. This creates new revenue streams and streamlines internal management for public and private clouds, as well as containers, into a simple, single platform.”

According to IDC, 56 percent of cloud users run more than one type of cloud deployment today, and more than 30 percent of enterprises will spend more on public cloud operations over the next 12 months than on other datacenter IT operations combined. With public cloud offerings constantly evolving and IT talent continuing to be in short supply, it can be difficult for enterprises to keep up, leading 45 percent of enterprises adopting cloud to prefer their connection to public clouds be through a managed service provider (MSP) like Burwood Group.

HyperCloud is an intelligent and comprehensive cloud management platform that enables enterprises and MSPs to automate operations across multiple private and public clouds, and optimize workload deployments by picking the best cloud option for their budget and performance needs. HyperCloud provides MSPs with the cloud expertise, centralized control and business agility to efficiently deliver new application services across the entire cloud ecosystem. MSPs can offer a broad range of services at scale to customers across their private and public clouds to create new recurring revenue streams and become a trusted advisor by helping companies easily adopt the public cloud without much of a learning curve. HyperCloud provides pre-populated application blueprints, turnkey automation and intelligent workflows that use real-time information on the whole cloud ecosystem, including public cloud features and pricing, and industry best practices, to make teams more productive and able to support a large customer base without costly re-training.

HyperGrid’s breadth of capabilities to deliver services across VMware vSphere, vCloud Director, Microsoft Hyper-V, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and many more, via a single platform without increasing the complexity of its internal processes, simplified Burwood Group’s building of services across public and private clouds. HyperGrid is now the foundation of the Burwood Cloud Orchestration Platform (BCOP): an integrated set of Cloud and DevOps tools that automates infrastructure and application delivery. Leveraging HyperCloud’s extensibility, BCOP enables continuous delivery, automated testing and compliance analysis, configuration management, cloud monitoring and ITSM, cost optimization, and self-service, all under the protection of a robust governance and policy framework that provides consistency across private, public and hybrid clouds and containers.

In addition, HyperCloud’s ability to optimize workload and application placement based on performance across private, public and hybrid clouds and containers, enabled Burwood Group to realize immediate return on investment (ROI) and deliver a complete set of intelligent cloud management services for businesses across verticals.

“There is no longer any debate that businesses are moving to the cloud. The reality is that for many, the transition can quickly become unmanageable due to the increasing complexity of managing multiple private, public or hybrid cloud environments,” said Nariman Teymourian, CEO at HyperGrid. “HyperCloud is a breakthrough for enterprises and MSPs making the transition. MSPs can leverage HyperCloud as the platform for business and technology transformation by offering new services to their existing customers and attracting new customers. We are excited to partner and work with Burwood Group as they transform their business.”
