LOUISVILLE, Ky., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --GlowTouch Technologies
(, an award-winning IT services firm providing custom
application development and technology integration services to businesses
around the globe, today announced it will be showcasing its new offering
consisting of Deployment, Consulting, and Managed Services enabling Parallels
Automation platform environments running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) at the
2013 Parallels Summit February 4-6 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.

GlowTouch recently became an AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partner and
worked with Parallels and AWS to implement the Parallels Automation platform
built on AWS. GlowTouch designed a fully-functioning Parallels Automation lab
environment built on AWS that could be used by service providers to host and
deliver a wide range of Application Packaging Standard (APS) enabled

"Utilizing AWS to deploy Parallels Automation environments for clients
represents a new delivery paradigm focused on scalability and long-term
customer value," said Vidya Ravichandran, President of GlowTouch Technologies.
"Leveraging the agile and versatile AWS platform will allow us to arm service
providers with a robust Parallels Automation environment that can help them
better serve their small-and-medium (SMB) customers through faster time to

GlowTouch provides key capabilities for enterprise-level service providers to
quickly deploy and operate a Parallels Automation environment that is
constructed using a purely cloud-based infrastructure. This deployment
underscores a growing sentiment among tech executives that cloud
infrastructure can offer enterprises more flexible and secure technology
environments. As a result, enterprises can now focus on their core value
proposition rather than on maintaining physical servers, networking gear, and
other underlying data center equipment.

"AWS allows businesses of all sizes to devote more attention to innovation and
less time to non-critical infrastructure management," said Terry Wise, Head of
Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, AWS. "AWS presents a great opportunity for
enterprise service providers to capitalize on cloud-based infrastructure to
serve their customer's diverse set of end user applications."

GlowTouch will be meeting with service providers in its booth (#505) to
educate them on the benefits of AWS as an infrastructure foundation for
running their Parallels Automation initiatives.

"The continued adoption of Parallels Automation to simplify business
operations and resource provisioning for service providers reflects a growing
consensus among the market that robust automation and seamless delivery are
must-haves for a profitable cloud services portfolio," said John Zanni, Vice
President of Service Provider Marketing and Alliances at Parallels. "Rapidly
deploying Parallels Automation via this newly announced GlowTouch service
built on AWS enables service providers to reduce their time-to-market and
shift expenses from CAPEX to an OPEX model while focusing on customer
acquisition and providing excellent service and support."

Parallels Automation allows service providers to better serve their SMB
customers by rapidly offering a rich catalog of cloud services. Parallels
Automation gives SMBs easy-to-use control panels to manage everything they
consume from the cloud.

As a Certified Parallels System Integrator, GlowTouch works closely with
Parallels to help service providers and independent software vendors (ISV's)
capitalize on the booming cloud services industry, a market that is expected
to double to nearly $207 billion by 2016 according to leading analyst firm
