(The Hosting News) – AppZero, the fastest, most flexible way to move server applications, announced today it has signed a channel partnership agreement with Dot Net Solutions, one of the UK’s top Microsoft Cloud partners. The agreement is part of a worldwide channel strategy implemented by AppZero to ensure comprehensive global coverage of its award-winning application migration software in the run-up to Windows Server 2003 (WS2003) end of support. Microsoft recommends AppZero Enterprise for application migration for various applications from Windows Server 2003 to either Windows Server 2012 or Windows Azure.
“The challenge in choosing the right partner is finding one with the knowledge and industry expertise to migrate applications with as little disruption to the business as possible—Dot Net met that criterion and more,” said AppZero CEO, Greg O’Connor. “Their industry expertise, combined with their consulting services makes Dot Net a highly valued member of the AppZero team.”
Also joining the AppZero Partner Program are:
- Infront Consulting, a global IT consulting firm with offices in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Belgium, and Singapore;
- KMD, one of Denmark’s leading IT and software companies; and
- Blue Turtle, a leading South African enterprise technology management company.
The partnership with Dot Net will continue to increase AppZero’s global presence, as the July 14, 2015 deadline for the end of support for WS2003 approaches. Enterprises around the world are gearing up to move their Windows production applications onto newer operating systems and/or to the Cloud in order to remain compliant and ensure they are running their applications on a supported platform. AppZero is the only product on the market that can “up-level” Windows server applications onto newer operating systems.
“Dot Net’s partnership with AppZero delivers a vital component to the mix – the ability to migrate legacy applications on older operating systems, to modern alternatives which can run in the Public Cloud. It forms an integral part of our Cloud Managed Platform and we are delighted to announce the partnership between the businesses today,” said Dan Scarfe, Founder of Dot Net.
AppZero is the fastest and most flexible way to migrate server applications to and across any cloud or datacenter, without re-engineering, re-installation or lock-in. Encapsulating Windows applications in VM/OS-free packages, AppZero’s patented software makes complex server applications moveable with ease.
