Amazon.com’s division Amazon Web Services is a key component giving Web platform startups rapid and economical launch and scale capability.
Avantica Technologies Release 1.0 is also a key component giving those same Web platform startups rapid and economical access to talented software engineers needed to launch and scale.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) competes with Rackspace, Microsoft Azure and Google. However, to put AWS’s focus on Cloud services in perspective, according to one knowledgeable source, just one of the 10 data centers in Amazon’s Eastern U.S. region has more servers dedicated to Cloud Computing than does all of those combined at Rackspace, which serves over 180,000 businesses with more than 80,000 servers.
Release 1.0 from Avantica (http://goo.gl/Rd6Rf), a suite of integrated software engineering services for startups designed to rapidly and economically scale software engineering capacity, is focused on solving this startup infrastructure problem:
40% of the 130,000 open positions in Silicon Valley are for software engineers… Social Media, Mobile and Cloud Computing companies are driving the growth.
- U.S. National Venture Capital Association
Software engineering talent: the key infrastructure challenge. Extrapolate that problem to other U.S. technology centers like Austin, Seattle and NY, and that is one BIG problem. In fact, AWS’ own Web-site lists over 600 job openings. Available software engineering talent capable of collaborating in an Agile model, in the same time-zone, economically, who can start developing or testing in days or weeks vs. months or quarters, is in short supply. Release 1.0 solves to that.
