DualSpark acquisition further expands Datapipe’s AWS expertise and services

Founded by a team of former AWS managers, DualSpark is an expert AWS assessment, automation, and migration consulting partner that provides cutting-edge strategy, cloud native workloads, and automation expertise to clients. DualSpark’s goal is to help enterprises lift and shift, or refactor complex workloads to the cloud, while equipping them with the skills and training needed to manage their ongoing cloud infrastructures.

DualSpark’s services fall into three major categories: Cloud Native Strategy, AWS Solution Assembly, and Implementation Services. The process starts with a recommendation on how to approach transforming and deploying your workloads to AWS. DualSpark then provides blueprints and prototypes for the modular components to own your cloud-operating platform and creates a web services platform to implement DevOps, big data, and security solutions.

DualSpark relies on cutting edge technology and key software and services partners to ensure effective implementation of the custom solutions we see at many enterprises today. The following cornerstone technologies drive better integration and make assembling the key components simpler in order to get you to the finish line faster, with a low overall cost and a well-supported solution.

Automation Everywhere: By leveraging automation services at every stage of the cloud deployment process, DualSpark can create high-scale, agile solutions with continuous monitoring to reduce latency and improve governance while heightening security standards across the environment.

Amazon Web Services: As an Advanced AWS Consulting Partner, DualSpark helps customers take advantage of the broad set of global compute, storage, database, analytics, application, and deployment services AWS offers to deliver some of the most complex projects. This helps organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale applications.

Chef: DualSpark was recently named a Chef Certified Partner, making the company an expert in the tool that allows you to automate how you build, deploy, and manage your infrastructure. In short, Chef turns your infrastructure into a versionable, testable, and repeatable application code, allowing you to more easily manage every aspect of your cloud environment.

Alert Logic: DualSpark’s Alert Logic Security-as-a-Service solution for AWS and hybrid infrastructures provides network, system and web application protection, delivering deep security insight and continuous protection for customers.

Cloud Health Technologies: DualSpark’s cloud governance practice with CloudHealth Technologies gives customers visibility across their entire AWS cloud ecosystem to effectively optimize resources and define governance policies for ongoing management. DualSpark works with CloudHealth to help customers scale their cloud visibility across multiple tool sets including AWS, Chef, and Alert Logic.

The final step in DualSpark’s implementation process is the DualSpark MSP Handoff program. This Managed Service Provider (MSP) program provides clients with ongoing professional management services from an MSP partner that can help them 24×7 after their environment has been optimized and migrated to AWS. As an AWS Premier Partner and recognized leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting, Datapipe was one of DualSpark’s top partners in this program from the very beginning.

Like DualSpark, Datapipe has a deep understanding of AWS infrastructure, having designed and managed AWS solutions for over six years. Datapipe has even been called a pioneer in the space as one of the first Managed Service Providers to offer custom AWS solutions tailored to meet individual client needs. Datapipe offers a number of AWS tools and services in addition to those offered by DualSpark in order to create these tailored solutions, including Datapipe Access Control Model for AWS and Datapipe Automation Services. In a nutshell, DualSpark’s services and technological expertise complement Datapipe’s long-term customer service strategy to a T. Through this acquisition, both companies are able to provide clients with a more complete approach to their cloud projects and continue to deliver unprecedented value to customers.
