Flagship SaaS platform delivers data-driven insight and efficiency to organizations considering cloud-based alternatives to on-premises applications
Waltham, MA, March 24, 2011 – Exoprise Systems, Inc., today announced the availability of CloudReady™, a SaaS application suite that evaluates the readiness of on-premises systems, orchestrates cloud migrations, and provides real-time performance monitoring for cloud-based applications. Developed by noted technologists and with deep customer input, CloudReady delivers proven insights, controls and reliability to IT professionals seeking to realize the benefits of cloud computing.
Bridging the Gap between On-Premises and Cloud-Based Systems
Experts routinely cite the cloud as the most disruptive force in IT in over a generation. While true, such assertions can discount the fact that organizations have a generation’s worth of experience, skills and comfort with current on-premises systems and that moving to cloud-based alternatives requires careful planning, a deep understanding of how existing systems are used and a thorough assessment of which cloud offerings will best meet the needs of the organization.
“Everyone understands the disruptive nature of the cloud,” said Jason Lieblich, Exoprise CEO and former CTO of Virtualization at Citrix Systems (NASDAQ: CTXS). “Our mission at Exoprise is to enable IT professionals to seize the benefits of the cloud quickly and confidently. CloudReady’s unique combination of analysis, migration and monitoring solutions gives organizations both the data-driven insights required to develop sound strategies as well as the tools to execute against them.”
CloudReady Insight Measures Readiness of 5,000 Exchange Mailboxes at Financial Leader
CloudReady Insight, the first of three offerings in the CloudReady suite, gives organizations a simple, low-cost first step towards developing and implementing an effective cloud strategy and a free version is available at http://www.exoprise.com/freetrial. One top financial institution recently used CloudReady Insight to segment its Exchange community by feature use and mailbox composition, to compare the TCO of on-premises systems to multiple cloud-based alternatives, and to assess the overall readiness of the organization to migrate enterprise messaging to the cloud.
“Seamless migrations of mission critical applications to the cloud are possible, and certainly desirable,” said Dan Petrozzo, former CIO of Morgan Stanley and Fidelity Investments, “but only if they begin with an analysis of on-premises systems and a complete understanding of which cloud-based option is the best fit. Exoprise automates this analysis and delivers a level of detail that is otherwise unobtainable.”
Delivering Data-Driven Clarity in the Gmail vs. Exchange Battle for Corporate Collaboration
E-mail is one of the most volatile fronts in the battle between Google and Microsoft, with both players highlighting cost and feature advantages of their offerings in this vital area of enterprise collaboration. CloudReady Insight puts key information in the hands of the decision maker. “Organizations of all sizes have an opportunity to significantly benefit from the vigorous competition between Microsoft and Google,” said Jamie Watt, Exoprise VP of Sales and Marketing. “One of our goals at Exoprise is to give IT professionals the knowledge and tools necessary to capitalize on this competition and to have the facts required to develop a winning long term strategy.”
According to Gartner, “The faulty assumption that e-mail is a commodity can lead to a lack of due diligence when assessing cloud-based e-mail services,” said Matthew Cain, Research VP. “Understanding the complex nature of e-mail systems will lead to more informed decisions about e-mail provisioning models.”
Exoprise will explore the value of the competition between Gmail and Exchange in a complimentary webinar entitled “Gmail vs. Exchange: How Your Business Can Benefit from the Battle for Corporate Collaboration” on Thursday, April 7 at 11:30am ET. Information and registration available at: http://www.exoprise.com/cloudwebinar.
