NaviSite Session at Cloud Expo

NaviSite, a provider of cloud-enabled, enterprise-class hosting, managed applications and services, on Monday announced Hosted Lotus Services powered by NaviCloud. The solutions include Hosted Lotus Notes and Domino, Lotus Sametime, Lotus Quickr and Lotus Connections.

Managing an IBM Lotus email and collaboration environment can be challenging -- particularly in light of growing cost pressures, security threats, limited resources, and user demand for reliable, anytime-anywhere access to data. NaviSite Hosted Lotus Services answers these challenges by giving organizations on demand access to the latest Lotus software for predictable monthly fees and without up-front capital expenditures. Organizations can save up to 47% over in-house solutions without the risk of obsolescence, and end users gain access to the full functionality of the latest IBM Lotus clients with improved security and reliability.

Powering NaviSite's Hosted Lotus Services is NaviCloud, a robust cloud offering comprised of enterprise class components including Cisco's Unified Computing System, VMware's Virtual Infrastructure 3.5 and vSphere 4.0, and IBM XiV SAN. Multiple SAS70 Type II data centers are linked with Gigabit connections to form an industrial-grade fabric that provides built-in redundancy ensuring SLA committed uptimes of 99.9% for all Lotus email and collaboration applications. NaviCloud also provides on-demand scalability for rapid deployment with no up-front capex commitments, and business continuity with Disaster Recovery time objectives measured in minutes, not days. Each organization's logical infrastructure is dedicated to them, allowing for customizable, enterprise level services such as dedicated directories, integration into custom on-premise applications, and dedicated networks behind high availability firewalls.

"NaviSite has provided Hosted Lotus services for over 16 years, and our administrators and developers work with some of the largest Lotus environments in the world on a daily basis," said Denis Martin, CTO at NaviSite. "Our latest platform is a culmination of that experience and includes the latest Lotus Email and Collaboration Applications, best of breed Compliance Archiving, Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam solutions, and support for virtually every smart Mobile device in the market, all of which are sold on a simple, easy-to-understand per user basis."

Hosted Lotus Services powered by NaviCloud is expected to be generally available in second quarter 2010.
