Mission Announces Partnership with CloudCheckr to Instantly Bolster the Cloud Service Provider's Cloud Intelligence Platform
Mission, a nationwide managed services and consulting company for cloud platforms including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, announced a partnership with CloudCheckr - the leading cloud management platform - that will help drive deeper insights and increased automation for customers leveraging Mission's managed Cloud Intelligence Platform. The partnership comes shortly after the Mission brand launched following the 2018 mergers of managed cloud service providers Reliam, Stratalux, and G2 Tech Group.

Mission harnesses best-of-breed, purpose-built tools and solutions as part of its Cloud Intelligence Platform. This includes Mission's popular Cloud Optimization capability, which uses technologies like CloudCheckr - fully managed by Mission - to thoroughly uncover new ways of improving customers' cloud performance while strategically reducing spend wherever possible. Through this platform, customers can take advantage of Mission's complete application performance management instrumentation, security instrumentation, automated maintenance, automated backups, and active monitoring. With today's partnership, Mission will now leverage CloudCheckr's powerful cloud management features and insights as a critical new input to the Cloud Intelligence Platform, enhancing Mission's managed service and yielding even more cloud optimization results for customers across industries.

In vetting potential solutions, Mission was drawn to CloudCheckr for its unmatched capabilities and for its clear commitment to delivering value through its partner ecosystem. The fact that CloudCheckr holds AWS Competency Status for Cloud Management Tools in Cloud Governance and Cost Optimization further reinforced Mission's decision in pursuing this partnership. CloudCheckr's industry-leading security and compliance functionality, cost management features designed to quickly optimize spend and eliminate waste, and automation capabilities are also key benefits that Mission will incorporate and wield to their fullest in the delivery of its managed services. Mission's expert cloud management personnel will utilize CloudCheckr to assess customers' cloud environments, collect and interpret the provided insights and data, and feed that output into the Cloud Intelligence Platform in order to automate the application of Mission's robust tooling and resources to achieve each customer's cloud optimization goals.

"CloudCheckr's partner-focused platform - coupled with the particularly rich cloud optimization tools it provides - makes it a perfect pairing for both us and our enterprise customers," said Jonathan LaCour, CTO, Mission. "With our Cloud Intelligence Platform designed to quickly and powerfully transform insights into results, CloudCheckr's deep perception into public cloud environments like AWS and Azure offers the essential input needed to maximize improvements for any cloud deployment. Combined with CloudCheckr's ability to optimize on costs while delivering compliant security and automation features, we believe our customers will be that much more pleased by both their invoices and their cloud performance as a direct result of this partnership."

"Our partners work closely with us to help enterprise IT and finance teams make the most out of their cloud investment," said Aaron Newman, founder and CEO of CloudCheckr. "We recognize making a move to the cloud is a complex logistical undertaking, requiring new skills and knowledge to address the technical challenges-cloud expertise isn't easy to come by. That's why it's so critically important for trusted managed service providers like Mission to fill the cloud skills gap, making sure an organization has the expertise it needs to succeed in the cloud native environment set to dominate the future of information technology systems."
