Real Estate-Inspired Methodology Matches Buyers with Cloud Properties

RentTheCloud.com Debuts to Help CIOs Adopt Cloud

A-Frame Technology Services on Thursday announced the availability of RentTheCloud.com, a brokerage service that matches companies seeking cloud services (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS) with cloud vendors. Unlike the uncertainties and risks of conventional approaches to evaluating, selecting, and implementing a cloud service, RentTheCloud.com is 100% success-based, like a realtor. Fees are based on a "cloud brokerage agreement" modeled after a standard realtor agreement and equal to one or two months of the cloud rental fee.

The RentTheCloud.com website currently lists the profiles of more than 100 cloud vendors, like a realty website lists properties. IT executives can quickly search the market of quality cloud properties for their unique needs and IT environments.

RentTheCloud.com's experienced IT analysts and contracting specialists-known as agents-work with clients as a realtor to match business requirements with best-fit cloud properties from plan to closing. The service's innovative and objective R.E.N.T. methodology combines expertise in implementing on-premise IT solutions with insight into cloud industry offerings and proven techniques inspired by the real estate industry.

The R.E.N.T. methodology includes:

  • (R)eview your current IT ecosystem, including application inventory, support organization, contracts, licenses, and facilities.
  • (E)valuate market opportunities that enable migration from current state to cloud alternatives.
  • (N)egotiate terms and conditions between buyer and seller.
  • (T)ransition to the cloud.

The R.E.N.T. methodology is particularly effective for large enterprise customers looking to move multiple applications to the cloud (e.g. Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, etc).

"Although the economics of cloud computing are compelling, the market is fragmented, and we found that many businesses were inundated with varying viewpoints from their own research making it hard to make sound and timely decisions," said Dan Brennan, co-founder and Principal Partner at A-Frame Technology Services and Lead Broker at RentTheCloud.com. "Our methodology allows CIOs to quickly take advantage of cloud benefits without the risk."

Generally, RentTheCloud.com agents can understand a client's IT ecosystem and identify best cloud alternatives in one to two weeks. And, just like a realtor, RentTheCloud.com provides this service at no charge-fees are only due if and when systems are moved to the cloud.
