LeaseWeb, one of the world’s largest Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers delivering on-demand hosting solutions including dedicated servers, cloud-based servers, colocation services and hybrid cloud offerings, has announced a partnership with WSM International. WSM will provide migration services for organizations wishing to “easily, safely and quickly” move their IT infrastructure to LeaseWeb’s range of hosted and cloud services.
As a provider of cloud migrations services, WSM has a 14-year history of and experience with migrating workloads from onsite to hosted cloud services – as well as with cloud-to-cloud moves. WSM has successfully completed tens of thousands of migrations, from the simplest web sites to complex enterprise IT workloads.
“As our offerings have grown, one of the common concerns we have heard from both potential customers, as well current customers looking to expand their portfolios, is the challenge of migrating to a new provider,” said Con Zwinkels, CEO of LeaseWeb. “With complex requirements, and an increasing reliance on hybrid cloud architecture, we recognize that now more than ever we need to provide our customers with a comprehensive migration solution. The choice of WSM as a migration partner was easy. We have worked with them in the past and, beyond their expertise and years of experience, they also share a common commitment to taking a personal approach with all of their customers, something we at LeaseWeb value deeply.”
The two companies will work together to ensure that all new and existing customers that are moving computing resources to LeaseWeb data centers have a smooth, logical, and successful transition, with all planning and execution carried out by WSM’s dedicated migration team.
“A company deciding to move some or all of its IT infrastructure off-premises or to a different provider is the beginning of the process, not the end,” said Ryan Pelerin, CEO of WSM International. “We work with our partners and the customers to understand every bit of their IT needs as well as budgets, timelines and any compliance concerns to ensure that the move to their new home is trouble-free. It takes planning and expertise and we’ve been doing it for more than a decade, so we’re pleased to be teaming with a top-tier provider like LeaseWeb to help its customers make the move.”
