Estuate Announces Managed Hosting Services for IBM Optim
Sunnyvale, CA May 9, 2013 - Estuate, a leading provider of IBM Optim Solutions for information lifecycle management (ILM), announced a Managed Hosting service today, giving customers a cloud-based option for their ILM initiatives.
Enterprise applications and databases do not just help run the business - they are the business. However, these mission-critical programs are becoming more data-intensive and more difficult to manage as information volume expands. Uncontrolled data growth threatens application performance and service level agreements, increases maintenance costs and exposes enterprises to legal liability due to data privacy and security issues. Estuate has expanded its service portfolio to help companies address the challenges associated with data growth and improve the performance of their software.
The addition of Managed Hosting services to Estuate's IBM Optim offerings gives customers the flexibility they need to adopt a robust data management solution without straining the budget. Estuate's services allow customers to leverage the benefits of third-party software management expertise for the cost of a monthly subscription, an increasingly attractive pricing model for organizations that are concerned with high capital expenses. The initial setup process includes Optim architecture and sizing, installation and configuration, design and development and production implementation services.
The Managed Hosting service can be fine-tuned for the specific needs of each organization to gain maximum value at the optimal price point. The following services are available as part of a fixed monthly cost for customers:
- Performance monitoring
- Onsite support
- Remote support
- Emergency support
- Proactive issue resolution
- Backup management
- Patch management
"Estuate's new Managed Hosted offering for IBM Optim gives our customers great flexibility in how they deploy, manage and fund their Information Lifecycle Management initiatives, and complements IBM's go-to-market strategy for our Optim Solutions," says Jim Lee, Vice President, WW Product Line Management & Strategy at IBM.
Additional Optim module implementation services are available for Managed Hosting customers. This enables businesses to utilize the services that are most needed in their unique environments. Just as there is no one-size-fits-all IT solution, a single pricing model does not fit into the budget of every company. The Managed Hosting model allows companies to shift from a capital investment to a more predictable operational expenditure model.
"With our new managed hosting service offering for Optim, Estuate is offering customers ultimate flexibility and service for their Information Lifecycle Management initiatives," says Marc Hebert, COO at Estuate. They still have the traditional on-premise model available to them; and now, they can opt for a cloud model, with our without outsourced services as well."
