Cemaphore Systems' New MailShadow® Cloud-based Email Migration and Continuity Solutions Provide Unmatched Sync Flexibility and Migration Simplicity
- Synchronizes Data Between Multiple Email Systems, Scales to Thousands of Users, Seamlessly Migrates Cross-Cloud or Cross-Domain -
SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cemaphore Systems™ pioneers ways for companies to benefit from cloud computing with the launch of its new MailShadow Desktop Edition, MailShadow Server Edition, and Outlook support for Google™. MailShadow continues to expand the number of different email systems from which IT staff and email users can bi-directionally sync and migrate their email data. In addition to Microsoft™ Exchange, Google Apps™, and Exchange Online/hosted Exchange, MailShadow now synchronizes between other email systems such as Hotmail, Yahoo! ™ Mail, and AOL Mail (via cross-platform support for IMAP and POP3).
“Cloud vendors have discovered ways to deliver economies on storage and cost savings unavailable to most enterprises.”
MailShadow Desktop Edition is well-suited for individual users, small businesses, or larger companies that want to deploy a cloud pilot or try MailShadow before implementing the Server Edition. Users can even conveniently synchronize between mailboxes without using Exchange.
With MailShadow’s new Outlook support for Google Apps, email users who prefer the familiar look and feel of Outlook can retain their Outlook experience even when using Google Apps or Gmail as their primary mail store. No new application learning is required—saving time and resources for both individual users and the IT community.
With MailShadow Server Edition, Cemaphore Systems brings a new level of enterprise-class high availability and migration simplicity to the cloud. MailShadow Server Edition, ideal for mid-sized to large enterprises, provides parallel synchronization that scales to thousands of mailboxes from a central location. Unlike other products, MailShadow Server Edition is the only solution which enables cross-cloud, cross-forest and cross-domain synchronization or migration. As companies re-organize or change ownership, this level of flexibility becomes priceless. For seamless calendar and conference room scheduling across an organization, MailShadow Server Edition enables users to see accurate free/busy calendar status of both Exchange on-premises and Exchange online users to book appointments or conference rooms. MailShadow also stands out from other options in the market because its two-way real-time sync enables reliable co-existence of corporate email in both an on-premises and cloud-based environment. As a result, companies can easily and safely deploy pilots to the cloud or confidently use the cloud as a back-up for their internal email data.
“E-mail will lead the charge into mainstream adoption of the cloud-provisioning model,” said Matt Cain, Research Vice President at Gartner in an “Email and the Cloud” report. “Cloud vendors have discovered ways to deliver economies on storage and cost savings unavailable to most enterprises.”
“Cemaphore Systems dramatically alters the economics for email continuity in the cloud so that companies of any size can reap the benefits of migrating and preserving their email data 24x7,” said Tyrone Pike, CEO of Cemaphore Systems. “With our innovative technology which enables synchronization between different mailbox types, MailShadow appeals to a broad audience and can cost-effectively address their critical needs for email uptime and seamless transition to an online service model.”
“MailShadow has been very helpful during our evaluation process of Google Apps and Microsoft Exchange Online,” said Chayan Rattanavijai, IT Specialist for a Boston-based hedge fund manager. “Its bi-directional continuous synchronization of email data between our on-premises Exchange infrastructure and cloud-based email service providers protects us from email downtime and allows us to have a cost-effective disaster recovery solution. I was also very impressed by the speed of first-time replication.”
“MailShadow is based on our robust, fourth-generation technology trusted by the largest enterprises,” said Tyrone Pike. ”We’ve taken our deep expertise to the cloud - making email migration and continuity available and affordable to companies of all sizes.”
MailShadow Desktop Edition starts at $49.95 per mailbox; MailShadow Server Edition starts at $995/server and $49.95 per mailbox for a one-year license with volume discounts and special migration pricing available. A 30-day migration package starts at $12.50/mailbox and $250 per server. Cemaphore is offering a free upgrade of MailShadow Desktop Edition to existing MailShadow for Google Apps and MailShadow for Exchange Online customers.
