Effective for large enterprise customers looking to move multiple applications to the cloud
A-Frame Technology Services has released RentTheCloud.com, a brokerage service that is suited for companies seeking cloud services including SaaS, PaaS, IaaS with cloud vendors.
The company said the new real estate-inspired service eliminates uncertainties and risks of conventional approaches to evaluating, selecting, and implementing a cloud service.
The service fees are based on a "cloud brokerage agreement" modeled after a standard realtor agreement and equal to one or two months of the cloud rental fee.
The RentTheCloud.com website currently lists the profiles of more than 100 cloud vendors, similar to a realty website lists properties.
IT executives can use this website to search the market of quality cloud properties for their needs and IT environments.
RentTheCloud.com’s IT analysts and contracting specialists, known as agents, work with clients as a realtor to match business requirements that will fit cloud properties from plan to closing.
The service also comes with R.E.N.T. methodology which combines proven techniques inspired by the real estate industry and is particularly effective for large enterprise customers looking to move multiple applications to the cloud such as Microsoft, SAP, Oracle.
The R.E.N.T. methodology enables review of current IT ecosystem, including application inventory, support organisation, contracts, licenses, and facilities.
The service will evaluate market opportunities that enable migration from current state to cloud alternatives, negotiate terms and conditions between buyer and seller and enables transition to the cloud.
