AppZero to On-board Windows Server 2003 Apps to Microsoft Azure | @CloudExpo #Cloud
Move your first five enterprise applications for free

AppZero has announced availability of the AppZero Service Provider edition for Microsoft Azure (AppZero SP for Azure), a software-as-service (SaaS) portal for quickly moving Windows Server applications to Azure, including those running on Windows Server 2003, which reaches end of support today.  Those wishing to try the service can log in at azure.appzero.com and move their first five enterprise applications to Azure at no cost. AppZero, which has added more than fifty new certified partners over the last year to assist customers with Windows Server 2003 planning and migration, also announced new 24/7 worldwide support and the opening of a new European office based in the Netherlands to help meet international demand. AppZero is already Microsoft Azure Certified and can be purchased and deployed from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

AppZero will demonstrate AppZero SP for Azure at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, booth 437, beginning today through July 16 in Orlando.

AppZero works with more than 100 certified partners on the front lines of Windows Server 2003 migrations.  ECS is one company collaborating with AppZero and Microsoft focused on cloud migration.  Industry Analysts estimate that there are more than 13 million servers still running the Windows Server 2003 operating system, many of them in the SMB market where customers frequently lack the resources to complete migrations. Aside from mitigating the risk of security breaches  associated with out-of-compliance Windows Server 2003 servers, many customers are looking to partners to help them upgrade their infrastructure to create more agile infrastructure through virtualization and moving to the cloud.

Said Brian Murray, Head of Service Development at ECS, "Having developed significant experience around Windows Server version upgrade initiatives, we have seen the value of AppZero to greatly simplify the migration process. We have also witnessed a consistent shift in the customer mind-set towards more of a transformational strategy, e.g. by adoption of Cloud solution delivery models. AppZero SP for Microsoft Azure will add significant value across a broad range of customer migration initiatives and we see this as a key contributor to IT industry game change."

"AppZero is a valued partner for Windows Server 2003 migrations because of its solutions that help customers seamlessly perform tasks such as rehosting, redirecting and reinstalling applications to Azure," said Alysa Taylor, Microsoft General Manager-US Cloud and Enterprise. "We're pleased to be working with AppZero on the Service Provider edition for Azure to provide a migration tool that is ideally suited for Microsoft's small and medium-sized business customers migrating applications from Windows Server 2003."

Key features for AppZero SP for Azure include:

  • Simple workflow integrated with Azure to automatically discover applications, separate them from the operating system, copy and reinstall on Azure
  • Ability to migrate applications from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Move only the application, saving time, reducing bandwidth and allowing for a systematic "gold" image construction of the cloud environment
  • Migration dashboard or a "single view" of a migration with the ability to conduct multiple, concurrent migrations
  • Log-in to the portal and migrate the first five enterprise applications free.
  • Find, purchase and deploy AppZero from the Azure Marketplace at: http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/marketplace/partners/appzero/appzero-ap...

AppZero CEO Greg O'Connor added, "What's different about AppZero is that it allows applications to be migrated faster and more easily and run as before, without all the old operating system and data center specific infrastructure. With Azure, customers are getting a highly flexible cloud environment that lets them grow their business as they require."

AppZero SP for Azure is available immediately at azure.appzero.com and is priced at $500 per application, with the first five applications free.
