itopia's Cielo Aims to Make Cloud Migrations Faster

By CIOReview | Tuesday, October 20, 2015

MIAMI, FL:  The increasing enterprise mobility trends such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) have accelerated the growth of Workspace as a Service (WaaS) market. The rise of hyper- connected mobile workforce and the proliferation of devices have fundamentally changed the way IT operates.

itopia, a company that provides WaaS and cloud computing services releases Cielo, an end-to-end Cloud Workspace engine that automatically discovers all of the components of an on-premises IT environment and then provisions and migrates those to the cloud. The company claims that the discovery, migration and cloud orchestration engine speeds the transition to WaaS ten times faster in comparison to manual migrations.

WaaS is a form of desktop virtualization that companies utilize to provide their employees with access to business applications and data from anywhere at any time. With WaaS solutions, employees can log in to the WaaS provider's service and enable a virtual workspace desktop environment that appears and operates like their actual physical office desktop. In this manner, WaaS solutions enable employees to be more productive and capable of accessing critical applications and data regardless of their geographic location.

The latest solution is developed specifically to help  IT service providers with an automated, privately labeled tool that allow clients to leverage the benefits of cloud computing. It enables MSPs to host their client’s third party business applications and reposition as cloud-service providers.

It allows itopia partners to perform migrations remotely. MSPs can discover their client’s existing on-premises computing environments, including devices, Active Directory (AD) settings, file servers, applications, and data, facilitating a seamless move to the cloud.

“I’m thrilled that we’re able to offer our channel partners such powerful and strategic tools, businesses today are well aware that they need to begin moving to the cloud. The demand for Cielo was driven by the increased opportunities MSPs are encountering and the need to quickly and seamlessly transition clients’ legacy IT environments to the cloud,” says Jonathan Lieberman, CEO, itopia.
