BURLINGTON, Massachusetts and SAN MATEO, California, October 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Attunity Ltd. (OTC BB: ATTUF.OB), a leading provider of real-time data integration software and lifecycle management solutions, and CloudShare Inc., a leading provider in cloud computing systems announced today an alliance to accelerate time-to-market of deploying business critical applications built on Microsoft SharePoint to the cloud.  

The alliance couples Attunity's lifecycle management software for SharePoint ("RepliWeb ROSS") with CloudShare's virtualized SharePoint Server platform and templates. This solution will enable agile-minded application development teams to quickly deploy CloudShare's pre-configured virtualized SharePoint farms, and then utilize RepliWeb ROSS to rapidly "cloud load" relevant SharePoint Solutions, Site Collections and incremental updates from on-premise environments to the cloud-based environments. This solution will allow organizations to shorten testing, QA and release cycles while invoking best practices for Lifecycle management across on-premise and cloud-based environments.

"We are pleased to offer an instant deployment bridge across on-premise and cloud environments, allowing organizations to speed development efforts, achieve an immediate return on cloud initiatives, and create a distinct competitive advantage," commented Garrick Herrmann, Vice President of Sales Attunity. "The rapid uptake of the Cloud makes this alliance a natural extension of Attunity's core capabilities following the RepliWeb acquisition.  We are committed to providing our customers with solutions to integrate their IT Infrastructure with leaders in cloud services."

"CloudShare cloud-enablement solutions have been helping SharePoint professionals and enterprise users be more effective.  Our SharePoint Automation and Enablement solutions have become very popular within the SharePoint community for quick and easy development, testing, proof-of-concept and training solutions that are pain free, simple to install and low cost," said Guri Stark, CEO of CloudShare. "Our partnership with Attunity is another step in offering our SharePoint customers a more robust solution that is based on providing automation and SharePoint-specific content layers on top of the virtualized cloud stack to make our customers lives easier and directly impact their productivity and bottom line."
