​Ex-Fronde AWS architect takes cloud consulting role at Equinox IT

Former Fronde solution architect takes up senior cloud consulting role at the Auckland-based company.

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.

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
