Startup announces SaaS solution to manage Amazon Web Services resources

2nd Watch, a Seattle-based startup, made a fair amount of noise at the recent AWS re:Invent show in Las Vegas, announcing 2W Atlas, a SaaS application that is deeply integrated with cloud products offered by Amazon Web Services.

The company builds, deploys, and manages AWS-based IT operations for enterprise customers. In particular, 2nd Watch assists customers in evaluating the economics of moving IT operations into AWS; designs and builds highly reliable and scalable AWS-based enterprise IT platforms; and provides software tools and management services that enable enterprises to deploy, manage, and optimize cloud-based IT operation infrastructures.

Matt Gerber, executive vice president of sales and marketing at 2nd Watch, told InfoWorld that 2W Atlas "is the first solution of its kind to visually harness the robust features of the AWS cloud. Today, IT organizations are asked to deploy infrastructure faster and at a lower cost, but still maintain IT corporate governance standards. 2W Atlas creates a bridge to accomplish these goals through a visual SaaS application that allows IT departments to quickly create, deploy and monitor approved cloud architectures."

The purpose of 2W Atlas is to provide organizations with increased peace of mind when moving to the public cloud. It does this by solving the IT governance and cost management challenges associated with migrating to the cloud, as well as alleviating the complexity of managing enterprise-scale deployments.
