AppZero to Preview SaaS Solution for Quickly and Efficiently Migrating Windows Server Applications to Azure Cloud

A Software as a Service (SaaS) solution for automatically migrating existing Windows applications to the Microsoft Azure cloud, including those reaching end of support with Windows Server 2003, will be previewed by AppZero at the Microsoft Ignite conference May 4-8 in Chicago, in booth #213.  AppZero Service Provider edition for Microsoft Azure, a self-service web portal is designed for system integrators and Microsoft customers that want to quickly on-board server applications to remediate the risk of server applications on WS2003 reaching end of support July 15, as well as anyone who needs a simple, fast and cost effective way to move server applications onto Azure -- all without code changes, at the push of a button.

The new SaaS offering (available this summer) leverages AppZero's award-winning, container-based migration software. AppZero separates an application from the operating system and machine, copies it, and re-installs it on Azure, without the labor intensive, error prone difficulty and cost associated with many migration services. Systems integrators and customers faced with moving large numbers of WS2003 applications can up-level to a new modern OS or to Azure without building or re-installing -- a capability unique to AppZero.

"Enterprises adopting Azure need a fast and simple way to move existing Windows applications to the cloud, yet migration has been an expensive barrier to adoption," said AppZero CEO Greg O'Connor.  "With our new service provider edition for Azure, it's fast and easy to select and move line of business or any application you want, and modernize and move to the cloud in one step."

AppZero will be demonstrating the new Azure product  at Microsoft Ignite in booth #213.  The company is also conducting an update to its well-known industry survey documenting the status of Windows Server 2003 migrations.  Participants are entered into a drawing to win a Microsoft Surface 3.

AppZero Service Provider edition for Microsoft Azure automatically discovers applications without installing code or agents on the source machine. Applications are selected and the task of moving the application to the Azure cloud is completely automated. Moving only the application saves time, reduces bandwidth and allows for a systematic “gold” image construction of the cloud environment. When the service is launched this summer, users can migrate their first five applications at no charge.
