Lanamark Inc., a global provider of agent-less, Services-Oriented Analytics software for IT solution providers delivering desktop and data center solutions across physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure, today announced availability of Lanamark Hybrid Cloud Design Module. The new module enables cloud migration planning for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platforms such as Amazon EC2, and Terremark as well as traditional private cloud (server virtualization) design with Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, Oracle VM and VMware vSphere. Lanamark is showcasing the Lanamark Suite Services Edition and meeting current and prospective partners in Booth 1203 at the VMware Partner Exchange in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Lanamark Hybrid Cloud Design Module enables Accelera Solutions to analyze existing IT infrastructure assets and determine compute, storage and network resource requirements and costs for both public cloud and private clouds,” said Joe Brown, president at Accelera Solutions, a leading cloud and virtualization solution provider in the United States. “This data-driven approach facilitates workload sizing, compatibility verification and TCO analysis so that we can help our clients develop and execute a comprehensive cloud migration strategy with leading cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services and Terremark.”

“As a VMware Powered cloud services provider, is always looking to support our clients' technology lifecycle needs and accelerate their journey into the cloud,” said Bruce Greiner, executive vice president of sales and marketing at “We see immediate value in collaborating with Lanamark to help our clients discover and measure existing data center workloads spanning physical and virtual environments. With the Hybrid Cloud Design Module, we can deepen our understanding of client environments, create solutions that meet their specific needs, and accelerate the design of flexible, private and public clouds to meet our clients' unique, mission-critical application requirements.”

Lanamark Hybrid Cloud Design Module enables cloud advisors and cloud providers to specify workload delivery, evaluate platform compatibility and compute solution design and pricing across public and private clouds. The new module is part of the Lanamark Suite Services Edition and is available to partners in the VAccelerate Partner Program.

“As companies embrace cloud computing to increase business agility and shift IT investments from a CAPEX- towards an OPEX-based model, they need to understand both commercial and technical dimensions of cloud-based solutions and services,” said Mark Angelo, CEO of Lanamark. “Lanamark enables cloud providers and their channel partners to accelerate on-boarding of customers by taking the guesswork out of cloud infrastructure planning and design. By leveraging Lanamark Suite, cloud advisors can help customers understand the current state of their hardware and software assets, determine which workloads are candidates for cloud migration and develop a blueprint for a public, private or hybrid cloud.”
