Managed Services: 7 Blogs MSPmentor Didn't Write, Nov. 22

Managed Services: 7 Blogs MSPmentor Didn't Write, Nov. 22

This week's managed services provider (MSP) news and rumors involve Continuum Navigate, ScaleXtreme, CloudMGR, Autotask, RightScale and more.

In some ways, I'm still recovering from last week's super-busy IT Nation 2013 conference. In other ways, I'm already looking forward to the Top 100 Channel Partner Conferences of 2014. But before I start sorting out next year's calendar, here are seven blogs and MSP news stories the MSPmentor team didn't have a chance to write for the week ending Nov. 22, 2013.

7. Here Comes EMC: The company's Mozy cloud backup business has added APIs for PSA and RMM integration...

6. Multi-cloud management: Keep an eye on RightScale. Oh, and ScaleXtreme. News developments involving each company continue. I'm starting to wonder: Are cloud management tools leapfrogging traditional RMM tools in some ways?

5. Congrats: Former Nimsoft CEO Gary Read is getting married in the next day or so. Congrats from the Nine Lives Media team.

4. M2M Boom Begins?: Some MSPs are starting to focus on Machine to Machine monitoring and management.

3. New Conference: Continuum is preparing to host its first user/partner conference. Navigate is set for Sept. 21-23, 2014 in Boston.

2. MSPs Managing Amazon Web Services: Keep a close eye on CloudMGR, which now features an Autotask integration. 

1. Participate Now: Does your company rank among the world's top managed services providers (MSPs)? Prove it and brag. Participate in our seventh-annual MSPmentor 501 survey.

A special shout-out to our U.S.-based readers: Have a relaxing Thanksgiving holiday.
