Doyenz Unveils Failover in the Cloud and Automated Server Migrations at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference
Doyenz, Inc., the first company to deliver Migrations in the Cloud, Active Disaster Recovery and Failover in the Cloud for the small to mid-sized business market, today announced that it will be demonstrating the new capabilities of its Automated Virtual IT™ platform at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2009 in New Orleans, July 13-16, 2009.

The Doyenz Migration in the Cloud service enables partners to remotely perform rapid “point and click” migrations for Windows®-based servers, which reduces deployment time and costs by 50%, ensures seamless deployments, and eliminates downtime for the customer. Partners can ensure “True” Business Continuity for their customers with the Doyenz Active Disaster Recovery and Failover in the Cloud service, which stores a production-ready server image in the Doyenz cloud for use at all times. This unique capability enables the latest image to fail over and run from the cloud in just minutes in the case of failure. The partners can also use the latest image or a prior version at any time to test, patch, or upgrade systems in the Doyenz Virtual Lab. The combination of these services allows partners to deliver True Business Continuity to their customers at a price they can afford, while growing recurring revenue streams and improving margins.

The Doyenz Migration in the Cloud service will be promoted by Microsoft through its Core Infrastructure group at the Microsoft World Wide Partner Conference in New Orleans. In addition, Dave Sobel, CEO of Evolve Technologies and a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, will be demonstrating the benefits of the Migration in the Cloud service in his breakout session at the conference. Finally, Doyenz also announces its partnership with Intel®, and the Intel Enabled Server Acceleration Alliance (Intel ESAA) Program, in which it will deliver pre-tested and certified server solutions to Intel resellers.

“We are excited to welcome Doyenz as a new Intel ESAA technology provider,” said Ned Thanhouser, Director, Intel ESAA Program. “The Doyenz Automated Virtual IT solution will enable our resellers to add more value to their customers when bringing Intel-based server solutions to market.”

In order to leverage and expand this significant partnership traction, industry veteran Carl Sittig has joined Doyenz as VP of Strategic Business Development. Carl joins Doyenz from Microsoft where he held a variety of sales, marketing, and business executive roles in a 17-year tenure, including his recent role as GM of OEM Server Sales. His experience spans engagements with the largest Multinational OEMs to the smallest VAR partners across North & South America, Asia, and Europe. At Doyenz, Carl is focused on developing strategic business partnerships with independent software and hardware vendors, and OEMs to bring the value of Automated Virtual IT services to their customer base.

“We are thrilled to see such strong momentum across all aspects of our business, from product adoption to partnerships, to attracting the brightest talent in the industry. Doyenz continues to gain traction as one of the companies ushering in the era of the new IT Economy. This success was a key factor in the recent closing of our Series A round of financing. We are very proud to have accomplished all this in these difficult economic times,” states Ashutosh Tiwary, CEO of Doyenz.

Having just finalized a Series-A funding round of $5M, Doyenz plans to use the capital to fuel its momentum across partners, sales, marketing and product development.

Doyenz is a Bronze sponsor at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference and is located in booth #300. Doyenz will be providing live demonstrations of their Failover and Migrations in the Cloud services at the conference.
