Compare / Contrast MS Server App-V and appzero

Move Windows server apps to any cloud

Webinar: Compare/contrast MS Server App-V and appzero

What: Greg O'Connor, appzero's CEO, will be joined by CTO Giovanni Boschi in a webinar focused on moving Windows server production applications to any cloud or datacenter server. The discussion will take a use-case approach to compare and contrast appzero capabilities with those of Microsoft Server App-V.

Why: Movement of Windows server applications within a private cloud or to a public cloud, (especially Azure) was among the topics covered atMicrosoft's recent Management Summit 2012. Extending its App-V desktop product to Windows server applications in Server App-V, Microsoft has primed the market for a broadened discussion of moving production apps to any cloud (not just Azure).

This webinar will feature a straight forward consideration of the similarities and differences between Microsoft Server App-V and appzero. It will also include a demonstration of appzero's zapp technology which automates migration of complex Windows enterprise applications

Who: The intended audience for this webinar is anyone interested in, or responsible for moving enterprise applications to or from datacenters and clouds. It will be of particular interest to Managed Service Providers looking to increase their MRR by giving their customers a solution that easily migrates applications to their cloud.
