Former Fronde solution architect, Sasan Rashidmardani, has joined Equinox IT, taking up a senior cloud consulting role at the Auckland-based company.
Rashidmardani takes up the role of senior consultant of Cloud Solution Architecture, where he will help Equinox IT clients design, adopt and migrate to the latest cloud platforms, and in particular Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
“Cloud is becoming increasingly complex as business expectations rise and technologies advance,” Rashidmardani said.
“Companies need to be informed about the opportunities, benefits and costs of cloud adoption and I’m excited to help these companies be successful with cloud through our services at Equinox IT.”
Rashidmardani joins Equinox IT from Fronde where he was the Lead AWS Solution Architect in Auckland, while prior to that he held senior architecture positions at ASB Financial Group and Unisys.
Equinox IT Auckland general manager, Warren Hughes, is rapidly growing and updating the company’s consulting services in Auckland.
“Cloud has become a dominant technology used by Auckland companies,” he added.
“Microsoft Azure especially provides incredible opportunities for these companies, however the technology does need specialist expertise to successfully get the right results.
“Sasan has an excellent reputation for his cloud expertise across the many Auckland companies he has helped."
Rashidmardani's hire follows that of David Reiss, who took up the role of principal consultant of Digital Transformation, departing Spark Digital after 14 years.
