CHICAGO – December, 2018 – By the end of 2019, over 69 percent of enterprises will operate in multi-cloud or hybrid IT environments as a first step in the transformation of their businesses. To address the demand for hybrid cloud solutions, ServerCentral, a leading managed IT infrastructure provider, today announced its acquisition of Turing Group, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Advanced Consulting Partner Network. The acquisition comes one year after ServerCentral made a minority investment in Turing Group.
ServerCentral Turing Group (SCTG) offers public cloud guidance, strategy, management, and application development in addition to core managed data center, private cloud, and managed IT services. This comprehensive service catalog is a product of the companies’ combined areas of expertise.
Turing Group is one of a few companies in the world to meet the requirements for three major AWS partner programs: Amazon Web Services Advanced Consulting Partner, Managed Service Provider, and Authorized Public Sector Partner. Since its founding in 2000, ServerCentral has become a leading provider of managed data center and network services across the globe.
Together, SCTG delivers the widest possible spectrum of cloud solutions and expertise to innovative organizations, from startups to enterprises to Fortune 500s.
“On the surface, ServerCentral has built a name for itself in managing data centers and network services for innovative companies. But really, what we do best is help organizations get the most out of their IT investment,” said Jordan Lowe, CEO of SCTG. “With the rise of public cloud, it was clear to us that offering a hybrid solution – part data center, part public cloud – had to be our future. We’re lucky to bring on an organization like Turing Group, one that understands the public cloud – and AWS specifically – better than any other provider.”
SCTG’s hybrid cloud services and solutions include:
- Cloud Strategy Development & Assessments
- Global Managed Data Center & Network Services
- Managed AWS Hosting Services
- AWS Consulting
- Managed Cloud Services (Private, Hybrid, VMware)
- Managed IT Infrastructure Services
- IoT Platforms, Device Management & Analytics
- Cloud-Native Software Development
Today, 90 percent of companies are using a cloud service because it enables them to have applications and data in the best place possible to help them achieve their business objectives and provides scalability whenever they need it.
“Moving to the cloud, or transforming your business, is not something to be taken lightly. It takes time, attention to detail and comprehensive planning to be successful. Lift and shift has proven, time and again, to fail to deliver value,” said Dan Thompson, Research Director for Multi-Tenant Datacenter (MTDC) at 451 Research. “ServerCentral Turing Group recognized this and has put together an offering for helping companies navigate the complex process of moving to the cloud, managing their cloud infrastructure, and transforming their business processes.”
451 Research’s findings line up with Turing Group’s experience.
“As a top AWS partner, our biggest challenge is keeping up with demand as more and more organizations want to move to the cloud,” said Brendan Caulfield, chief revenue officer at SCTG. “Joining forces with ServerCentral allows us to pursue new business much more aggressively while giving us the technical capabilities and expertise to provide whatever solution serves our clients best, whether that’s all AWS or a hybrid approach.”
