SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) - RiverMeadow Software™ Inc., developer of the world's only automated server migration solution developed specifically for carrier and service provider clouds, has been named a Gartner "Cool Vendor" in Cloud Management for 20131. Gartner's annual Cool Vendors report recognizes emerging vendors who are delivering solutions into the marketplace to challenge long-held assumptions and significant investments in traditional IT. These companies are transforming the way businesses operate and consumers engage with technology.

Enterprise IT leaders and cloud architects are facing new opportunities to leverage a growing set of offerings from emerging cloud management technology vendors. In this report, Gartner analysts examined vendors providing cloud management platform and/or cloud migration capabilities, and according to the report's key findings, "as enterprises seek to implement public, private and hybrid cloud computing, they increasingly desire cloud management technologies to assist with management, governance and migration."

"We're excited to be recognized by Gartner, one of the world's most trusted and respected analyst firms, for the important role we are playing in today's ever-changing cloud management space," said Mark Shirman, President and CEO, RiverMeadow. "We believe being named a Gartner Cool Vendor further validates the need for our RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS platform, which allows carriers and service providers to quickly, easily and cost-efficiently deliver the benefits of cloud computing to their customers."

The RiverMeadow Cloud Migration SaaS is an API-based platform designed to automate the migration of physical, virtual and cloud based servers into and between public, private and hybrid cloud environments. The solution supports an unlimited number of service providers and enterprise users at a given time. By simply providing their cloud URL and credentials, partners can instantly access RiverMeadow's three key processes (Collect, Convert and Deploy) that automate server migrations from start-to-finish.
