New Zealand cloud provider theCloud has partnered with US-based SaaS provider New Relic.
Founder and CEO of theCloud, Bruce Trevarthen, says this partnership will improve the way New Zealand businesses use cloud services: “Our partnership with New Relic adds another dimension, introducing web application monitoring and management into the mix. This ultimately makes web technology a lot more reliable for New Zealand IT managers who want to control the cost and complexity of business critical applications and data. Many people seeking this type of system want to do it within the country if they can, and theCloud makes both aspects possible."
For Bill Lapcevic, vice president of business development at New Relic, “the solutions this collaboration offers New Zealand businesses are the flexibility, reliability and savings that IT operations and application development teams need in today’s ever changing environment.”
According to Trevarthen, a lot of business people are willing to adapt their business to the cloud. “We’ve been amazed by the take up since we launched, and it’s due to those businesspeople who are on the move, willing to adapt and want to rapidly increase business efficiency with the assistance of technology. We’re finding as time goes on, and now that we have New Relic on board providing additional visibility and control for clients, that group will soon be the majority of the business population, so we’re gearing up for a lot of cloudy days – in a good way of course!”
