Welcome to episode 6 of the CloudSpot Podcast

This week I am delighted to welcome John White, Senior Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer of Expedient. Join John and myself as we discuss how Expedient has evolved as a VMware Cloud Provider Partner and his experience in the journey from shifting the majority of business from Colo and hosting services to robust cloud and managed services.

Expedient delivers some significant differentiated offerings earning them number one in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for DRaaS and also recently ranked within the top 10 of Channel Futures MSP 501 managed services providers worldwide, but perhaps most significantly VMware Partner Innovation Award for Americas Regional Cloud Partner of the Year. Cloud Spectator LLC evaluated the performance of Expedient’s cloud service among other major cloud providers and found some pretty amazing results. Some of their findings include; Expedient cloud is up to 340% less expensive than AWS, Azure. Expedient’s cloud displayed greater than 35% performance improvement over the closest rival VM tested. Lastly in price-performance, Expedient achieves 32% more value over the AWS c5.xlarge. You can find out more here.

Management at scale of common functions across multi-cloud is key to Expedients success, as John explains their philosophy has allowed customers to focus on their unique business with Expedient supporting the majority of common functions. Learn about Expedient’s Enterprise Cloud offering and how Expedient uses vCloud Director, NSX, vSAN and vRealize suite to offer sustainable cloud services and extensible offerings like Kubernetes via vCloud Director Container Services Extension (CSE) and vCloud Availablity Disaster Recovery.
