Growing at 35% per year, Vembu branches out from its backup/recovery roots
Cloud­based backup/recovery is a cutthroat business with shrinking margins, commoditization and a surfeit of contenders trying to get a piece of the pie. The company's decision to push its resellers away from rebranding and into carrying Vembu's name on their services will give it much ­needed name/brand recognition in a crowded arena.

Vembu has grown its revenue 35% annually over the past two years and is on track to meet that mark in 2014. Key product additions this year include a suite of CRM applications and the introduction of on­premises virtual appliances (with physical appliances to come in the near future). The latter move puts Vembu in more direct competition with relatively well ­known players in the hybrid cloud backup battle.

Vembu is celebrating its 10­ year anniversary by exceeding the 60,000 ­customer milestone, sold mainly through its 4,400 channel partners. That compares with 55,000 customers and 4,000 resellers in February 2014. The company has added 400 resellers so far this year, and has begun to emphasize VARs in addition to its traditional target market of MSPs. Notable service­provider partners include Verizon's Terremark subsidiary, mindSHIFT Technologies, HostPapa and Hitachi Data Systems. The profitable Vembu claims to have exceeded 35% revenue growth in each of the past two years, and is on track for similar gains this year.

The company expects to have 200 employees by the end of 2014 (up from 160 in February), and 300 by the end of 2015. Most of its employees are near its headquarters in Chennai, India (with 65% engaged in R&D), but Vembu has been steadily expanding internationally. It opened an office in London this year, and relocated its US headquarters to Addison, Texas, where it expects to grow its workforce from 15 employees this year to 50 next year Vembu's worldwide distribution of partners roughly equates to its worldwide revenue distribution: 70% North America, 20% Europe and 10% AsiaPacific – a distribution that has remained fairly steady over the past year. However, although about 30% of its revenue comes from outside North America today, Vembu hopes to increase that to 50% in 2015. Key target markets for 2015 include the EU­5 countries, Scandinavia, Brazil and China

Default FTA management for Word 2013 and WordViewer
A complete step-by-step guide for managing the default file type associations for Word 2013 and WordViewer with FSLogix.

Duncan Murdoch, of Amber Reef, uses this white paper to outline the necessary approach to centrally control and manage FTAs for Word 2013 and WordViewer using FSLogix. 

After addressing the reason and symptoms of the issue, Duncan asserts, "If the desire is to 'Control the FTA' centrally and manage the associations with FSLogix, preventing the users from overriding the FTA settings," then "to achieve this you can create 2 separate FTA rules, one for Word 2013 and another for WordViewer."

By applying these rules alongside the FSLogix Hiding rules for the applications, then the Administrator can ensure that the FTA that is applied is the one that they have allocated to the application group.

NOTE: This will also prevent a user from being able to right-click the file and assign their OWN FTA preferences.
