rPath Professional Services Bring Trusted Advice to the Cloud

Packaged Services, Training Deliver Proven Strategies for Cloud, Virtualization Projects

rPath today announced new Professional Services designed to provide trusted advice to organizations looking to take advantage of virtualization and cloud opportunities. The company also announced new Training Services featuring courses such as Enabling Applications for Cloud Computing, Featuring Amazon EC2, which will be held December 10-12, 2008, in Redwood City, Calif.

Despite their popularity, virtualization and cloud computing have few best practices and fewer experts, said Nathan Thomas, vice president of services at rPath. We have the benefit of creating the market for virtual appliances, and we remain a leader in application virtualization. As a result, weve also been entrenched in cloud since the early days, so we understand what it takes to be successful. And we are committed to sharing that understanding with the community at large.

Trusted Advice for Emerging Opportunities

The new rPath Professional Services and Training Services reinforce the companys emergence as a trusted advisor on the issues of application virtualization and cloud computing. Recently, rPath introduced its Cloud Computing Adoption Model to provide a pragmatic, actionable, five-step framework for the graduated adoption of cloud computing. The model delivers measurable benefits now, while laying the foundation for the strategic benefits of a cloud infrastructure over time.

Now, the companys Professional Services and Training Services extend its practical approach to helping organizations achieve both immediate, tactical goals as well as long-term, strategic objectives with cloud and virtualization.

  • rPath Professional Services provide industry-leading expertise in all areas of virtualization and cloud computing, from building and maintaining virtual applications to planning and implementing an effective enterprise application virtualization project or internal compute cloud. Professional Services are delivered as customized consulting or five-day onsite workshops for ISVs, cloud application developers, and the enterprise. Details are available at http://www.rpath.com/corp/products/consulting.
  • rPath Training Services provide both open enrollment and customer-focused courses covering topics for enterprises and ISVs, including enterprise application virtualization, appliance development and software packaging featuring rPath products, technologies, and recommended practices. All training is delivered by rPath trainers who have years of hands-on experience working with enterprise customers and using rPath's products. Details and registration information are available at http://www.rpath.com/corp/training.

Thomas said, As interest in cloud surges, so does demand for knowledgeable guidance and support. We find ourselves providing those services simply because our background has prepared us for it. But were also working with trusted partners to scale the collaborative delivery of these virtualization and cloud programs.
