IndependenceIT Cloud Workspace Suite and Google Compute Engine Selected by nGenx and GoldMine for Cloud Application Enablement

IndependenceIT, an integrated workspace automation software platform provider allowing IT departments, service providers and ISVs to easily deliver workspaces, applications and desktops as a service (DaaS), today announced that it has been selected by nGenx to power Windows-based DaaS and application delivery on Google Compute Engine to support the delivery of GoldMine Cloud software. For independent software vendors (ISVs) like GoldMine, this expands the theater of operations to increase revenue opportunities while reducing software management and maintenance liabilities.

IndependenceIT was selected by application and desktop pioneer, nGenx, to deliver its “Bring Your Own Cloud” strategy to GoldMine and other ISVs. GoldMine will now benefit from its selection of nGenx and Google Compute Engine to cloud-enable its popular contact management software by leveraging the power of IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace® Suite. By combining the automation/workflow of Cloud Workspace Suite with Google Compute Engine’s performance, scale and support for Windows-based workloads, GoldMine is able to create new profit centers from its existing product line. Google Compute Engine’s support for Windows-based cloud workspaces allows software developers like GoldMine to run business critical Windows-based workloads at high performance and scale.

“We’re proud to work with Google and nGenx in delivering the underlying technology that supports a best-in-class workspace, application and DaaS,” said Seth Bostock, CEO, IndependenceIT. “Cloud Workspace Suite orchestrates, provisions and manages all elements necessary for automated delivery of GoldMine Cloud.”

“This alignment enables us to offer our all-in-one CRM capabilities as a subscription option. Furthered by an easy to use Windows application in the cloud, users retain all of the functionality of our on-premise solution,” said Paul R. Petersen, vice president and general manager, GoldMine. “As a result, customers now have greater choice in how they consume the technology without leaving behind years of development and innovation.”

Google Compute Engine is built on the same infrastructure that returns billions of search results in milliseconds. The backbone of the network has thousands of miles of fiber optic cable, uses advanced software-defined networking and has edge caching services to deliver fast, consistent and scalable performance. Multiple points of presence across the globe provide strong redundancy with data automatically mirrored across storage devices in multiple locations. Add to this Google Compute Engine’s expanded support for Windows-based workloads like GoldMine and this presents a compelling option for ISVs.

“Our technology partners, including IndependenceIT and Google Compute Engine, have been instrumental in reinforcing the advantages of nFinity nWorkspace, considered by many as a premier cloud application delivery platform for ISVs,” said JD Helms, CEO, nGenx. “Software vendors acting on this technology can expect to benefit from the increasing adoption of cloud-based applications.”

As a critical component of the nGenx solution, IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace Suite orchestrates, manages and provisions all elements necessary for automated, multi-platform, hypervisor/device agnostic applications and workspaces. Cloud Workspace Suite features industry-leading Microsoft RemoteApp automation/workflow and cross-platform interoperability for unmatched application access. The software also offers a robust API set for ease of integration with existing service provider infrastructure and business support tools.

“The IndependenceIT team has found Google Compute Engine to be a robust cloud platform capable of scaling to address the needs of workspace enabled applications. As our engineering team worked closely with the Google Compute Engine team during the beta phase of Windows support, we were pleased by the depth of functionality available from the platform, the rapid deployment of virtual machines, and the high end workspace performance delivered directly to the end user. While Cloud Workspace Suite has been the test platform to scale on Google Compute Engine, the solution’s general availability allows our partners to build a global workspace, application or DaaS business on this infrastructure," noted Bostock.


Global support for partner ISV cloud enablement leveraging Google Compute Engine is available immediately.
