cloud automation

A new platform has launched to offer cloud automation. Matter simplifies complex cloud migrations by automating planning, provisioning, and compliance.

“For the past 15 years we’ve watched companies tackle their journey to the cloud and knew there was a need for greater automation across the entire process and a way to make the generational innovation of cloud computing accessible to more businesses,” said John Peak, CEO of ReactorWorks, the startup behind Matter. “The market continues to offer solutions that tackle one, or possibly two of the vital elements required to migrate or deploy critical applications to the cloud, and yet we see that more than half of all migrations are failed or stalled.”
