Managed Cloud
Coca-Cola North America
2nd Watch built a log management system centered around Splunk in AWS and manages the environment for Coca-Cola North America so that the company can manage the logs and reporting data from its global soda fountains in order to index and regularly analyze fountain data and track metrics on the flavors selected.
Why Managed AWS Cloud?
Two growing concerns for enterprises that have moved from proof-of-concept to integrating the public cloud into their IT strategy are “cloud sprawl” and complexity . Sprawl happens when companies begin to leverage the self-service nature of the cloud without figuring out how to operationalize security and governance to monitor the design, deployment and management of the public cloud environments within their organization. Leaders begin to ask, “Do we have the right process in place?” or “Are we spending too much?” and “Is it really secure?” With 2nd Watch’s Managed Cloud you can rest easy knowing that your Managed Cloud has been designed, built and managed with industry best practices, expert technical staff and cutting edge technology.
Why 2nd Watch?
Why do people chose a specialist over a generalist? RISK! That’s right – if you expect high returns in the market, you know there is risk associated with it, and you better have the advice of an expert, not the person fixing your car. A move to the cloud promises huge savings, but with that comes complexity and risk, which is why you need an expert, not a generalist who may also sell co-location or on-premise services. 2nd Watch is your cloud specialist! We have more cloud projects, more instances under management and more accreditations than any other partner in the AWS ecosystem. We are the only cloud-born partner to earn our SOC2 compliance and maintain our AWS Premier Partner status since the original group of 15 was selected. 2nd Watch has been TESTED, AUDITED, PROVEN, and TRUSTED by the world’s largest brands, like The Coca-Cola Company, Adobe, Conde Nast, Lenovo, SCOR, Scholastics, DVF, and Yamaha.

Why 2nd Watch Managed Cloud?
2nd Watch Managed Cloud, so you can manage your work/life balance. As specialists, we know “what you don’t know” or the “gotchas” that can take you years to learn, can slow you up, cost you money or worse – result in a security breach. This is all we do. We don’t unwrap bubble-wrapped SANs, move racks or worry about the AC running. We focus on automation and management so you can focus on business outcomes. In that, the system you use to manage the cloud has to be integrated into your operational management systems, but it must be a different system that knows and learns the cloud because the cloud is faster, stronger and more robust than what your old systems can manage. The 2nd Watch Cloud Management Platform is a robust system that leverages cutting edge software with years of cloud experience, which reduces your risk and simplifies what you have to manage. This is not a self-proclaimed statement—it is what the world’s leading brands say about 2nd Watch and our Managed Cloud Services.
