ClearPointe Server Management Now Available for Windows Azure Cloud
LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- ClearPointe announces the release of "ClearPointe Azure Management" in the Windows Azure Store (www.windowsazure.com). ClearPointe monitoring and management service is now available for clients' cloud and Windows Server infrastructures in Windows Azure. It is a scalable, hosted management solution powered by Microsoft System Center with live engineer remediation from the ClearPointe 24/7 Eyes-On™ NOC.
"This was a logical next step for us," Jeff Johnson, ClearPointe CEO explains, "For years we've led the industry in providing remote network monitoring and management services for our clients' on-premise, cloud and hybrid environments. As businesses increasingly turn to cloud platforms for their infrastructures, it is important for us to be able to extend the same high level of management service as a convenient add-on to Windows Azure clients."
ClearPointe Azure Management is available through the Windows Azure Store. Once clients have provisioned a virtual server in Windows Azure, they will then have the ability to search the store for available application and service add-ons. These services can be managed through the Windows Azure management portal, and usage is included on a single bill from Microsoft Corp. Currently ClearPointe offers Management for one VM (virtual machine) operating system at $300.00 each per month. This option is available for customers who already own the required Microsoft System Center Management License. If a Management License is needed, ClearPointe has a Management service option that includes the license for an additional $50.00 per month, per VM operating system.
"Microsoft's Cloud OS vision gives customers the ability to create, operate and manage hybrid cloud infrastructures that span on-premises, Windows Azure and service providers," said David Aiken, group product marketing manager, Windows Azure, Microsoft. "ClearPointe is forging a path as a Managed Service Provider by extending System Center to actively manage servers and applications in the Windows Azure Cloud."
