Cloudtools Partners with LabTech Software to Become First-Ever Virtual Machine Migration Software Offered to its Network

Today, Cloudtools announced a partnership with LabTech Software, the only powerful, robust-featured remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform developed by an IT service provider for IT service providers, making Cloudtools' product, Shift, available to LabTech Software's network. The new product from Cloudtools was just announced last month, and this partnership is expected to be a game changer for its growth momentum as it looks to solve a common problem for LabTech Software's partners.

Today, when companies need to move virtual machines, it is a time consuming and cyclical process that can cripple engineering teams' productivity. But with Shift, the complex, technical process is replaced with elegant software that requires no more technical skillset than the ability to drag and drop files. With this partnership, Shift is available for immediate purchase through LabTech Software.

"Customers are asking about solutions for virtual machine movement, so we're thrilled to bring Shift onto our platform as a seamless solution to a very critical pain point," said Matt Nachtrab, chief executive officer, LabTech Software. "With the growth in companies relying on virtualization, we know we're only seeing the tip of the iceberg. We expect to see high growth in the market during the next 12 months and beyond."

"Moving virtual machines is a time consuming, complicated process that adds additional work to the already cramped workload of engineers and IT professionals," said Sam Cece, chief executive officer, Cloudtools. "We're excited that LabTech customers will be able to experience Shift and see firsthand how our drag and drop solution will save them time and money."

Cloudtools was spun out of Virtual Bridges, Inc. when the team saw a massive market opportunity to shake up the time-consuming and difficult task of moving a virtual machine by building smart software that took the burden off administrators. Shift is the company's first product to market, and there are plans to continue to develop other products that will make virtualization professionals more efficient.

Cloudtools estimates that more than a million system administrators could benefit from Shift in the US alone. To learn more about Cloudtools and Shift, visit
