GlowTouch Technologies to Spotlight New Offering Built on Amazon Web Services at Annual Parallels Summit in Vegas

LOUISVILLE – Jan. 28, 2013 – GlowTouch Technologies, an award-winning IT services firm providing custom application development and technology integration services to businesses around the globe, today announced it will be showcasing its new offering consisting of Deployment, Consulting, and Managed Services enabling Parallels Automation platform environments running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) at the 2013 Parallels Summit February 4-6 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.

GlowTouch recently became an AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partner and worked with Parallels and AWS to implement the Parallels Automation platform built on AWS. GlowTouch designed a fully-functioning Parallels Automation lab environment built on AWS that could be used by service providers to host and deliver a wide range of Application Packaging Standard (APS) enabled applications.

“Utilizing AWS to deploy Parallels Automation environments for clients represents a new delivery paradigm focused on scalability and long-term customer value” said Vidya Ravichandran, President of GlowTouch Technologies. “Leveraging the agile and versatile AWS platform will allow us to arm service providers with a robust Parallels Automation environment that can help them better serve their small-and-medium (SMB) customers through faster time to market.”

GlowTouch provides key capabilities for enterprise-level service providers to quickly deploy and operate a Parallels Automation environment that is constructed using a purely cloud-based infrastructure. This deployment underscores a growing sentiment among tech executives that cloud infrastructure can offer enterprises more flexible and secure technology environments. As a result, enterprises can now focus on their core value proposition rather than on maintaining physical servers, networking gear, and other underlying data center equipment.

AWS allows businesses of all sizes to devote more attention to innovation and less time to non-critical infrastructure management,” said Terry Wise, Head of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, AWS. “AWS presents a great opportunity for enterprise service providers to capitalize on cloud-based infrastructure to serve their customer’s diverse set of end user applications.”

GlowTouch will be meeting with service providers in its booth (#505) to educate them on the benefits of AWS as an infrastructure foundation for running their Parallels Automation initiatives.

“The continued adoption of Parallels Automation to simplify business operations and resource provisioning for service providers reflects a growing consensus among the market that robust automation and seamless delivery are must-haves for a profitable cloud services portfolio,” said John Zanni, Vice President of Service Provider Marketing and Alliances at Parallels. “Rapidly deploying Parallels Automation via this newly announced GlowTouch service built on AWS enables service providers to reduce their time-to-market and shift expenses from CAPEX to an OPEX model while focusing on customer acquisition and providing excellent service and support.”

Parallels Automation allows service providers to better serve their SMB customers by rapidly offering a rich catalog of cloud services. Parallels Automation gives SMBs easy-to-use control panels to manage everything they consume from the cloud.

As a Certified Parallels System Integrator, GlowTouch works closely with Parallels to help service providers and independent software vendors (ISV’s) capitalize on the booming cloud services industry, a market that is expected to double to nearly $207 billion by 2016 according to leading analyst firm Gartner.
