rhipe chosen as APAC distributor for predictive analytics solutions provider

rhipe, the cloud solutions and services distributor, has been appointed as an APAC distributor for Runecast, a global predictive analytics solution provider for VMWare, AWS and Kubernetes.

The value of Runecast

Runecast was founded in 2014 by a team of virtualisation professionals with the aim of helping VMware admins have better control over their environments.

The company uses AI and other technology for predictive issues management and security intelligence, delivering proactive risk mitigation, saving troubleshooting time and costs, and ensuring security compliance against security standards such as ISO/IEC 27001, PCI-DSS and CIS.

The company recently won Computing's Cloud Security Product of the Year.

Its flagship Runecast Analyzer is a patented technology that proactively scans IT infrastructures to identify and report on all known configuration, best practices and security issues that can be prevented within that system using VMware’s own published documentation.

According to Runecast, users benefit from greater mission-critical transparency.

Runecast Analyzer also runs securely on-premise, with offline capabilities, so that no data needs to leave the customer organisation.

This is especially important to financial, banking, defence, healthcare and government sectors.

Runecast joins other vendors that have recently joined the rhipe portfolio, including Octopus Cloud and Nerdio.

Expanding the reach of both companies

According to rhipe, the ability to proactively monitor and receive alerts for technical issues as soon as they happen is vital to ensure the smooth management of multi-cloud environments and adherence to security compliance.

rhipe CEO Dominic O’Hanlon says, “With the proactive analysis that Runecast delivers, this solution helps our VMware partners to gain greater efficiencies and a transparent view of technical issues within their environments.

"Runecast will deliver significant value to our partners, saving them time and enabling them to focus on other business initiatives, while their technical environments keep running. We are pleased to welcome them to the rhipe vendor portfolio.”

Runecast senior director channel sales APAC Andre Carpenter says, “We're thrilled to forge this partnership with rhipe and offer our predictive analytics solution for their partners who run VMware, AWS and Kubernetes throughout their service offerings.”

Carpenter says, “We felt rhipe was the best positioned distributor to help us roll out our business across the region, and even from early on, we felt there was a clear alignment in values and goals between our two companies.”
