SEATTLE, Wash. (Cloud City), March 31, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- DualSpark, an AWS Advanced Consulting partner, today announced it has merged with Options I/O, a leading Cloud Marketplace and Technology Advisor headquartered in Tacoma, WA.  Matthew Scott, Founder of Options I/O, joins DualSpark as VP of Sales and Alliances.

"The team at DualSpark consistently scored at the top of Options I/O's client feedback for cloud system integration and engineering projects.  DualSpark is constantly innovating and automating for their clients, and they deserve the trust their clients put into them," said Matthew Scott.  "It is exciting to have the opportunity to combine our companies to deliver world-class service, support and enablement to our clients and partners."

As independent cloud adoption advisors with experience from thousands of deployments, both DualSpark and Options I/O have clear visibility into which combinations of services, technologies and approaches result in successful outcomes. This creates the opportunity for the next generation of partner engagement models with packaged solutions to streamline project delivery and ongoing operations.

"Options I/O has been a strong consulting partner for Chef and our customers," said Ken Cheney, VP of Business Development at Chef.  "We are looking forward to expanding our relationship with both teams."

"We think this is a great win for our customers," said Patrick McClory, COO and CTO of DualSpark. "The merger of DualSpark's deep consulting and engineering capabilities combined with the partnerships within the Options I/O cloud marketplace reduces the cost, risk and timelines of the integration work usually shouldered by our customers.  This truly provides a unique opportunity to further promote successful cloud deployments with a proven marketplace of partners, all focused on long-term client success."

"We're excited to have Matthew joining the leadership team at DualSpark, he has so much passion and energy for the mission," said Simon Plant, CEO of DualSpark.  "We're seeing tremendous demand from our customers who need their initiatives to quickly deliver results.
