AppZero and OpSource Partner

Ease movement of Microsoft and SAP server applications to the cloud

Server application virtualization pioneer AppZero and OpSource, a provider of enterprise cloud and managed hosting, on Wednesday announced a partnership that will make it easy for enterprises and independent software vendors (ISVs) to move their server-based Microsoft and SAP applications from the datacenter to the OpSource Cloud, a cloud service for companies requiring pay-as-you-go flexibility and 100% availability as well as high security and control.

"Our customers have been asking for a simple way to move Microsoft and SAP applications to the cloud quickly and cost-effectively, and we're pleased to team with AppZero to bring them the best solution possible," said Keao Caindec, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer, OpSource. "This partnership is an example of the powerful technology that can be built by taking an ecosystem approach to cloud-building."

The OpSource and AppZero solution allows enterprises to instantly provision complex server-based applications to use the OpSource Cloud as a fast and cost-effective approach for running applications. AppZero's patent-pending Cloud Container Isolation Technology allows IT organizations and ISVs to move Microsoft and SAP server applications to the cloud risk-free and without violating licensing requirements. Organizations can deliver any application on any server, in minimal time, by encapsulating an application and its dependencies - with zero operating system (OS) - in a pre-integrated, self-contained Virtual Application Appliance (VAA).

"The AppZero VAA is a natural fit to further OpSource's speed and agility, says Greg O'Connor, AppZero CEO. "By automating the installation and configuration of server applications, customers benefit through fast deployment, fewer errors and a reduced need for human touch. The OpSource-AppZero partnership offers businesses an on-demand approach for running server-side apps when and where they want."
