2nd Watch Brings Best-in-Class Cloud Services to San Francisco With Fourth Office

Premier AWS Cloud Partner Brings Operational and Cloud Migration Expertise to Bay Area Enterprises

SEATTLE, WA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) - 2nd Watch, Inc., a global systems integrator, and software and deployment firm focused on IT operations, today announced the opening of its newest office in San Francisco. The company's fourth office opens in response to a demand for Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud experts with an enterprise operational focus. The new San Francisco office follows the company's recent expansion to the New England market with a New York office, and gives San Francisco Bay Area customers immediate access to 2nd Watch products, services and personnel.

"As an AWS Premier Partner, there is a strong demand for our products and services from enterprises that want to stay on the cutting edge of infrastructure innovation while simultaneously lowering overhead," commented Jeff Aden, 2nd Watch co-founder and president. "The infrastructure business is going the way of the dinosaur; 2nd Watch is focused on taking forward-looking businesses into the future, today." 

The San Francisco expansion improves direct access to 2nd Watch services and expertise for customers in the region. Having completed more than 200 public cloud projects in 2012, 2nd Watch guarantees 99.99 percent uptime on AWS architecture and engineering, a fact borne out by the unprecedented zero business impact its customers experienced throughout the entire year, regardless of AWS service outages. The company now brings that level of reliability to San Francisco enterprise clients, allowing companies to derive immediate business value from cloud services with the convenience of face-to-face consultation.

2nd Watch is a cloud-first business led by industry veterans and highly qualified specialists. With the goal of helping enterprises to securely migrate traditional IT solutions to the cloud without business interruptions, the company delivers tremendous efficiency, flexibility and value to its enterprise clients. 2nd Watch customers rely on the company's innovative cloud products and solutions to deliver efficient and operationally improved outcomes within weeks or months.
