The cloud computing sector features a constant stream of news, big and small. So far this week, the biggest might come from New Relic, which has hired two new executives. Each hails from big-name cloud companies: AWS and Salesforce.

We do have other tidbits, of course. Another involves Amazon Web Services again, but this time with Vonage. And Harness, a small company out of northern California, is trying to attract managed service providers to its cloud cost management platform. Boomi’s got a partner program announcement, too. So do Google Cloud and indie cloud provider Vultr.

But first, before we dive in, recall last week’s Rackspace Accelerated Migration Program news. It wasn’t clear how channel partners might be involved in the initiative, and now that we’ve heard back from Rackspace, there’s still some uncertainty.

“We are currently looking at new ways to expand the scope of the Rackspace Accelerated Migration Program and channel partners are one of the areas we are exploring,” chief marketing officer Casey Shilling tells Channel Futures.

With that under our belts, it’s time to dig into other cloud news of interest to the indirect channel. We start, in the slideshow above, with word from New Relic about leaders it has lured from AWS and Salesforce.
