Next Pathway Inc. | February 15, 2023
On February 14, 2023, Next Pathway Inc., a pioneer in automated cloud migration, announced that SHIFT Cloud is now available as a software as a service (SaaS) offering on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. The Azure Marketplace provides users with access to the most innovative solutions that enable them to utilize the advantages of the Azure cloud platform fully. Next Pathway expands the reach of its automatic code translation product by joining the Azure Marketplace.
SHIFT Cloud places the power of automatic code translation directly in the hands of the consumer. Azure users now have self-service access to a powerful and performant code translation engine that enables them to translate ETL pipelines and legacy SQL code to Microsoft Azure.
Code translation has never been easier and more accessible while retaining a high-performance level, coverage, and quality.
Azure clients may easily migrate their legacy apps using SHIFT Cloud. SHIFT Cloud removes the uncertainties and frustrations from cloud migration by offering Azure clients a dependable and simplified end-to-end approach for translating complicated legacy workloads to the Azure cloud platform.
Furthermore, every dollar spent on SHIFT Cloud counts towards a customer's cloud usage commitment. This is becoming extremely important as the unpredictable economy influences an enterprise's decision to transfer workloads to the cloud.
The Azure Marketplace enables Next Pathway to provide the exact product that clients want at the precise time that they require it. This partnership not only provides Azure clients with powerful automatic code solutions but also boosts Next Pathway's brand visibility within the Azure Marketplace.
It also forwards Microsoft's dedication as a partner-focused organization.
This new development follows the public announcement last August of Microsoft and Next Pathway's collaboration to speed the migration from legacy data lakes and data warehouses to Microsoft Azure. Next Pathway is already seeing a significant increase in the adoption of SHIFT Cloud from Microsoft Azure customers.

Akamai Technologies | February 14, 2023
Akamai Technologies, Inc., a cloud company that powers and protects online life, launched Akamai Connected Cloud. This is a platform for cloud computing, security, and content delivery that is spread out over a large area. It includes three new enterprise-scale core cloud computing sites across the U.S. and Europe, as well as 10 other core sites that Akamai plans to launch across the globe throughout the year.
Also, Akamai has chosen more than 50 cities where it will start building distributed sites this year. These sites will bring basic cloud computing services to places that are hard for traditional cloud providers to reach. The new ISO, SOC 2, and HIPAA compliance standards, which are available right away, show how much Akamai cares about the security of its cloud computing services and the customer data they hold. They also make it possible for customers to move workloads between Akamai and other public clouds.
Akamai's approach to cloud computing is fundamentally different. It adds core and distributed sites on top of the same backbone that powers its edge network. This will help companies build, deploy, and secure high-performing workloads that need a latency of less than 10 milliseconds and a global reach, like media, gaming, SaaS, retail, and government, in a more efficient way.
Because Akamai is the leader at the edge, they can scale everything they do, like content, security, and cloud computing. Akamai's new distributed locations and Akamai Connected Cloud and the new distributed locations that will be launched around the world are both in line with what customers love most about Akamai, which is that it gives them the best edge and cloud platform that is distributed. Adam Karon is the Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of Akamai's Cloud Technology Group. He has led teams that help the top media, gaming, and software companies deliver the best experiences at scale.
