Geminare Redefines Global Email Archiving Landscape through Microsoft’s Windows Azure

 

Geminare introduces an on-demand, feature-rich, email archiving solution delivered from the Windows Azure™ Cloud—an instantly branded offering immediately available to all Microsoft partners

 

 

   

 

 

July 9th, 2012, PALO ALTO, CA – Geminare today announced, at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), the introduction of myVault Email Archive powered by Microsoft Windows Azure™—a revolutionary data archiving, search and retrieval service run completely from the Windows Azure™ Cloud. myVault Email Archive powered by Windows Azure is a fully partner-managed, self-serve offering that requires no on-site software or hardware and sets up in minutes. The service is compatible with both on-premises and Cloud-hosted email servers and services from virtually all email providers, and is now available globally through Microsoft’s Windows Azure Marketplace.
 
myVault Email Archive allows Microsoft partners to instantly expand their Cloud data management portfolio without additional infrastructure investment. The service provides instant white-labeling allowing Resellers to brand and sell their offering immediately after registration. 
 
Geminare CEO, Joshua Geist, said, “Partner response to myVault has been outstanding and the feedback is consistent: resellers love the rich feature set, the instant white-label capability, the customer self-serve deployment model and the ability to bill their customers directly, representing new opportunities to develop on-going customer relationships.” Geist added, “And as equally enticing are the recurring-revenue model and industry-leading margins that are available in perpetuity.”
 
In addition to encryption, flexible archiving, indexing and legal-hold capability, myVault offers industry-unique, advanced features such as high-speed nested searches and auditable, unique data storage keys. Built on Geminare’s patented CORE Platform—a multi-tiered billing and management enablement engine—myVault delivers premium functionality that allows distributors, resellers and even end customers to brand the offering online within seconds. 
 
Following the recent announcement of a Strategic Alliance with Microsoft, Geminare’s myVault Email Archive powered by Windows Azure is the first product to leverage the sophisticated integration between Geminare’s CORE Platform and the Microsoft Windows Azure Marketplace. This tightly integrated capability allows software vendors (ISVs) looking to migrate their traditional software products into advanced Cloud solutions to do so easily and swiftly through the Geminare CORE Platform. ISVs can manage their entire partner ecosystem in a true multi-tiered fashion, including advanced capabilities from sales, provisioning, management and reporting through to final billing processes. Through the CORE Platform, ISV’s can leverage the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and its global customer reach.
 
Walid Abu-Hadba, Microsoft corporate vice president, developer and platform evangelist, confirmed, “Geminare delivered what they committed to, and we are delighted with the results. myVault Email Archive for Windows Azure is a high-value, sophisticated offering. It allows partners and customers alike to dispense with building hardware-driven, self-managed solutions.” Mr. Abu-Hadba added, “We are very encouraged by the positive feedback we’ve seen so far from both partners and customers, and expect strong traction in the cloud-based archiving space.”
 
“Customers are looking to solve IT challenges in more cost-effective, unobtrusive ways, while partners want to align with clients more strategically,” said Enterprise Strategy Group Senior Analyst, Jason Buffington, who focuses on data protection. “Cloud-based solutions enable both goals, without requiring lengthy implementations or complex delivery models. Add those business needs to the technical challenges of archiving, backup, and disaster recovery, and it’s easy to see how a simple-to-deploy, easy-to-use managed service such as Geminare’s myVault can spur rapid growth. By utilizing the Windows Azure Cloud, Geminare is acknowledging global resellers who need service offerings and infrastructure support—on demand and affordably. We look forward to watching the momentum continue across the expanded Geminare RaaS suite this year.”
 
myVault is the first of Geminare’s Recovery as a Service (RaaS) offerings selected by Microsoft for inclusion in the Windows Azure cloud, with the balance of Geminare’s BC/DR portfolio, including Cloud Recovery, Rapid Recovery and Online Backup, scheduled for availability in Windows Azure by year end.
 
Geminare's myVault Email Archive is a highlighted partner solution at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), July 9-12, 2012, in Toronto, Canada. Joshua Geist will be appearing onstage Tuesday, July 10, 2012 at 2pm EDT with Yvonne Muench, Director of Market Insights, Microsoft Azure ISV Incubation, in the WPC panel session #ISV04p, titled, “SaaS Go To Market: Reaching Customers Through Partners.” In addition, the myVault solution will be available for live demos and for immediate partner registration at both the main Windows Azure demo booth and the Geminare exhibit booth, #219.
