Quest Software and Cloud Computing

Using Cloud means providing our products as a service

It’s probably about time for me to provide a quick overview of what we at Quest Software are doing in the cloud computing area.

There are two main “cloud” directions for us:

  • Using the cloud for our own offerings.
  • Enabling public and private clouds.

1. Using Clouds
Using Cloud means providing our products as a service. Most of these efforts are not public yet, but you can get some of the information on what is coming if you see the recording of my TechEd session.

Also, Quest has one of the best virtual desktop (VDI) solutions in the market – vWorkspace. And a growing number of service providers are signing up to provide a virtual desktop service built on that system.

2. Enabling Clouds
Enabling Clouds means helping customers get to the cloud infrastructure and managing their regular and cloud environments efficiently.

For public clouds we have currently have a set of products for Microsoft’s online offerings- BPOS, including solutions for:

  • Migrating from Lotus Notes and Novell GroupWise to Exchange Online
  • Migrating from Lotus Notes, SharePoint, file shares, and Exchange public folders to SharePoint Online
  • Migrating from Lotus Sametime to Office Communications Online (coming soon)

For private clouds (in a sense of cloud-like dynamic virtualized datacenters within companies) we have our Vizioncore product set the most important from cloud perspective are probably:

  • vControl – self-service provisioning, multi-VM control and task-based automation, and
  • vFoglight – solution to manage performance, measure capacity and perform chargeback for virtual and physical infrastructures.

I hope this provides a good quick overview/disclosure of why I am here and what is it that we are doing in the space.

There’s a lot more coming and I’ll keep our cloud news appearing in this blog.
