TMCNet:  Smartronix Launches Intelligent Cloud Hub for Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Smartronix Launches Intelligent Cloud Hub for Amazon Web Services (AWS)

RESTON, VA, Jan 29, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Smartronix, a pioneer in designing and implementing enterprise-class cloud computing solutions for both public and private sectors, announced today the launch of the Intelligent Cloud Hub(TM) (ICH) for AWS. This solution is a complete managed service offering that enables customers to run advanced enterprise workloads reliably and securely across multiple infrastructure environments. By connecting a customer's on-premise datacenter through the ICH, Smartronix is providing a dynamic cloud environment directly connected to AWS' immensely scalable and robust Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). The ICH includes a cloud brokering capability and services portal, integrated service and security management, and trusted connections to AWS. Customers can provision and manage compute power, add new services, or extend on-premise environments into AWS, resulting in lower transition and operational costs. Centralized billing, provisioning, and service management provides a single view across an entire managed ecosystem, giving clear visibility into security, service health, and service utilization.


"Real physical and technical barriers exist that often prevent our customers from consuming cloud services to their best advantage.

Mixed infrastructure environments address many of these concerns; however, the challenge of trying to implement, secure, manage, update, and monitor solutions across on-premise and cloud platforms can prove challenging," says Robert Groat, Smartronix Chief Technology Officer (CTO). "We developed the Intelligent Cloud Hub to remove these barriers and provide a feasible option to help our customers reap the benefits of the AWS cloud." The core feature of the ICH is the ability to create a software defined network (SDN) infrastructure that can extend and converge a customer's datacenter securely into the cloud. The ICH uses a Cisco Unified Data Center Architecture, which incorporates Unified Fabric technology and Unified Computing Systems (UCS). These core technologies allow enterprise customers to create hybrid workloads across on-premise and cloud environments, which are ideal for large-scale transactional systems, real-time applications, high-performance databases, and in-line security management systems.

"Smartronix and Cisco are aligned to provide a secure hybrid approach to deliver solutions via joint engagements," says Dan Kent CTO of Cisco Public Sector.

Groat states, "We chose Cisco technology and AWS Direct Connect capabilities to provide our customers with a consistent, secure, and network isolated path to the cloud." AWS Direct Connect provides a high bandwidth dedicated connection that can be partitioned into multiple interfaces, enabling access to resources like Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) instances while maintaining network isolation between the environments. The ICH extends an already established portfolio for Smartronix as a provider of managed services tailored for the cloud.

As an AWS APN Premier Consulting Partner, AWS Authorized Government Partner, and member of the AWS Channel Reseller Program, Smartronix has used AWS services to not only design and deploy many large, complex solutions in the public cloud, but to also demonstrate advanced knowledge of such public sector requirements as security and compliance. In addition, Smartronix was one of the first to deploy both a Federal and Cabinet-level agency information system into the cloud, using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). "We believe that many of Smartronix' customers can benefit from the ICH, which leverages the AWS Direct Connect service. Smartronix is inspiring innovative solutions that drive real value for the public sector," says Teresa Carlson, Vice President, Global Public Sector, AWS.

"Solutions such as the ICH help address business needs and continue to expand the number of options for public sector enterprises moving their IT infrastructure and applications into the AWS Cloud." For more information on the ICH, visit http://www.cloudassured.com/ich.
