CloudShare Announces the "Trade up to the Cloud" Program for Surgient Customers

Risk-Free Migration Program Allows Surgient Customers Affected by Quest Acquisition to Upgrade to the Cloud With CloudShare

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/10/10 -- CloudShare, the Cloud IT Company, today announced an immediate "Trade up to the Cloud" swap-out incentive program to help existing Surgient® customers avoid the blues by migrating to CloudShare's hosted IT as a Service (ITaS) platform. The CloudShare program delivers minimal business disruption and full support for the industry's leading cloud-based ITaS solution and comes on the heels of recently announced plans by Quest Software to acquire virtualization vendor Surgient.

The CloudShare "Trade up to the Cloud" swap-out program for Surgient customers will provide a worry-free migration path to CloudShare and free use of the full enterprise product for the duration of 2010 for customers who sign up for 2011. To take advantage of this program, current Surgient customers can register at http://www.cloudshare.com/tradeup.

"With Surgient's recent acquisition by Quest, customers with substantial investment in Surgient's private cloud automation software are understandably concerned about future product direction and support," said Zvi Guterman, CEO of CloudShare. "We want to alleviate headaches by providing Surgient customers a seamless upgrade from software to the cloud. We encourage Surgient users to try CloudShare for themselves and discover why so many customers have made the switch."

CloudShare goes beyond infrastructure by enabling users to create, deploy, manage and share IT on-demand in the cloud. The product delivers complete enterprise systems (OS, storage, networking, third party applications) "as a service" to meet a wide range of business needs, including software or appliance sales demos, training and IT operations. The company has gained recognition for its ability to migrate on-premise IT systems to the cloud unchanged and in as little as a few minutes.

CloudShare customers have achieved 50 percent or higher returns on investment when delivering IT as a service, and a large and growing percentage of Fortune 1000 companies are leveraging the CloudShare ITaS platform to manage IT-intensive business functions more efficiently and at lower cost. CloudShare is accessible direct and through private-label cloud marketplaces such as McAfee's Global Solutions Lab, which is powered by CloudShare. Customers can be up and running in a matter of days and launch entirely new IT environments in mere seconds. To learn more about how to make the switch, visit http://www.cloudshare.com/tradeup.
