Cloudamize, the center city cloud analytics startup which Bob Moul joined as CEO earlier this year, announced today that it has partnered with Google to provide a free migration planning solution for the Google Cloud Platform. With this announcement, Cloudamize now provides cloud migration planning and cost optimization services for the three leading public clouds: Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

Although Google is a good bit behind the other two, it obviously has enormous resources and is pushing all the buttons to play catch up. For example, it recently lured Spotify from AWS.  And that's why partnerships like the one with Cloudamize are important to it. Google and Cloudamize are inviting companies with a migration requirement of 10 or more servers on any infrastructure – physical, virtual, cloud, or hybrid – to plan their migration to the Google Cloud Platform for free.

Moul said in an interview with Philly Tech News before leaving for a conference with Google out  west that with coverage of the three major public clouds, Cloudamize will be able to analyze and optimize clients' configuration needs comprehensively across all three. Moul also stressed that relationships with major system integrators were beginning to bear fruit, and named a number of blue chip clients.  And he felt the prestige of the partnership with Google would be a huge boost for Cloudamize.

Moul was CEO of Boomi through its sale to Dell. More recently, he headed Philly Startup Leaders and was CEO of mobile app startup Artisan Mobile.

Cloudamize has been backed by DreamIt Ventures, Gabriel Investments and MissionOG. Most  recently, last year it received an investment of undisclosed amount from Astia Angels.
