SpamTitan, VMware Partner On Cloud-Based Virtual Appliance

'App on Demand' lets customers create, on demand, a SpamTitan virtual appliance in the cloud
Boston, MA and Galway, Ireland, June 29, 2009" SpamTitan, a virtual email security software provider, is delighted to announce they will once again be partnering with VMware in an exciting new initiative offering on demand cloud computing applications.

'App on Demand' will allow customers to create, on demand, a SpamTitan virtual appliance in the cloud. By simply clicking a link, a SpamTitan virtual appliance will be generated for them in the cloud whereby they will be able to log on and explore their own SpamTitan application. Marrying virtual appliances with advanced cloud computing technology brings to the market a new product delivery method. Available through VMware's Virtual Appliance Marketplace, the App on Demand offers customers the ideal method to look at a potential solution and also experience the power of virtual cloud computing in action. "The SpamTitan VMware relationship continues to allow us to bring original and innovative solutions to our customers," says Ronan Kavanagh CEO of SpamTitan. "This latest initiative is truly leading edge and will culminate in SpamTitan offering customers the opportunity to use the product in the cloud, not in the SaaS model, but as their own dedicated on demand application benefiting from the redundancy, scalability and failover associated with virtualization and cloud computing."

SpamTitan for Vmware was launched in 2006, as a complete operating system and software suite designed to run on VMware. Using Vmware enables businesses to run SpamTitan on any server irrespective of the operating system. When companies deploy SpamTitan using Vmware they enjoy all the benefits of virtualization.

For small businesses this gives high availability, performance and the reliability of VMware with cost-effective packages designed for small IT environments. For Medium and Enterprise Businesses, the solution allows for increased IT control through service level automation, dramatically reducing capital and operating costs and maximizing IT efficiency.

According to Kavanagh the drivers behind the uptake of cloud computing won't change in 2009, with cost and environmental savings being the key motivators. "This is a very exciting time for SpamTitan" explains Kavanagh, "we see this as the next generation deployment phase for SpamTitan. This initiative will allow us to offer even more flexibility to our customers as well as the increased efficiency and low cost that cloud computing will bring. We have always been innovative in our offerings - this is bringing innovation to a next level."
