Kerio Technologies launches new cloud service infrastructure

Dec 14, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Kerio Technologies, Inc., a provider of unified collaboration, communications and security solutions, has launched a new cloud service infrastructure for its partners and customers.

Although Kerio previously enabled its channel partners to host Kerio Connect on their own hardware using the SaaS model, this marks Kerio's first major push into true, hosted infrastructure services. The first Kerio Cloud offering will be theKerio Connect 8, a messaging (email) and calendaring server.


Unlike cloud email solutions such as Microsoft Office 365 or Google Apps, Kerio offers its customers a private cloud experience, which in turn allows them more control over their own data.

Kerio Cloud is a hosted infrastructure service that allows Kerio partners to resell Kerio Software as a Service to their end customers, eliminating the need to purchase and maintain their own server environments. Kerio will provide its partners with private virtual machines running Kerio Connect 8 in the cloud with some basic configuration. The Kerio partner will take it from there, acting as the primary administrator and support contact for their clients, the company said.

Kerio Connect 8 features the new Kerio Connect client, which is a completely redesigned Webmail experience that has been rebuilt from the ground up to deliver the performance and experience users expect from a modern web application. Email, calendars, contacts, tasks and notes are fully functional in the Kerio Connect client. In addition to this new cloud offering, Kerio Connect 8 continues to be available as an on-premise server solution and through our existing SaaS hosting partners, the company added.

Scott Schreiman, CEO, Kerio Technologies, said: "Pundits have touted cloud services and predicted the demise of on-premise solutions for a few years now. While customer data suggests that onsite servers are still very popular, we think Kerio Cloud is the most secure and flexible solution for the IT guy that is looking for an alternative, but is still evaluating the cloud.

"Our private cloud not only eliminates the need for partners to carry the hardware burden, it allows them to focus their energy on adding value instead of worrying about the availability of email services." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
