m8 exchange hostingMi8, is now a division of Apptix. to veiw more details or rate this host please visit the Apptix hosted exchange review. Mi8 was founded in 1997 in New York City by Huw Thomas, Dave Castellani, Chris McConnell, and Azfar Haider. Mi8 was acquired by Apptix on September 7, 2006.

Mi8’s core mission is to transform Microsoft Exchange, a sophisticated messaging and collaboration system, into easy-to-use subscription services. Mi8 is not simply a hosting company - hosting companies function as an extension of your corporate facilities, with highly redundant data centers - but instead Mi8 functions as an extension of your Information Technology team, managing and monitoring our sophisticated messaging and collaboration infrastructure, so you don’t have to.

Instead of expending resources building and maintaining a high performance, highly available messaging system, your IT team can be focused where they belong: on customer-facing and revenue-generating systems. In other words, while messaging is a “mission critical” system for most organizations today, is not a core business function of your company. It is, however, Mi8’s core business function.

Financial Directors suffering from cloud computing phobia


- Irrational fear of IT means budget holders lose out on cost cutting opportunities -

In these troubled times all the chatter is of cutbacks, redundancies and retrenchment into secure and trusted business dynamics. To some there is no alternative. In the changed financial climate that we now find our self-enduring, the way businesses think has changed.

No longer can a Finance Director plan for future growth to fund strategic IT projects or upgrades to services and or equipment. The plan will invariably lead to a “down size” or the new business buzz word “right size”.

All too often businesses shy away from strategic investment in cost saving IT due to fears of not being able to afford it.

“What tosh”, says Charles Black CEO of Nasstar the SaaS provider.

“You can afford it and the IT upgrades and enhancements you need to keep ahead of the competition. SAAS frees up the budget and that oh so tight cash flow. Pay on demand with no upfront costs and get the enterprise grade solution that you were always looking for.”

IT for most businesses is a business enabler but is not the key business. The embattled FD would rather invest his scant resources in developing his business and emerging from this downturn in pole position to capitalise on his less imaginative peers.

Nasstar’s Hosted Desktop is the solution the FD would choose if the cloud had the public acceptance that it should. Why does the cloud still hold fear for some? The answer is probably a mixture of old fashioned thinking and lack of understanding as to what is the cloud.

Nasstar’s customers save between 15 to 30% on their IT spend and have no lumpy upfront payments to make and suffer no savage depreciation on the kit they have just bought. Why should they?

Imagine the scenario at the Board meeting for the Finance Director.


CEO, “Is it cheaper? Is it smarter? Is it more secure? Is it more scalable?”

FD, “Yes”

CEO,  “Where do I sign?”

Charles Black goes on to say, “To change perceptions firstly there needs to be an education process through the media and exposure to cloud delivery. That many aspects of our daily lives are about to come into contact with the cloud may come as a surprise to some. Who uses Google and Salesforce? Nearly everyone.”

New LiveOffice Mail Archive Features Accompany Announcement, including LiveOffice CloudMerge Tool to Automate Migration

TORRANCE, Calif., April 16, 2009 — LiveOffice, a leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS),email hosting, email archiving and email continuity solutions today launched its first-ever Client Bill of Rights. This effort represents LiveOffice’s pledge to maintain absolute transparency and honest communication with its 8,500 clients nationwide. In addition, the Client Bill of Rights proactively addresses common concerns from prospective cloud-based solution users, in terms of clarifying charges, ownership of data, service availability and system security.

“LiveOffice’s Client Bill of Rights is a testament to the company’s expertise in the SaaS messaging industry. With more than 10 years experience delivering enterprise-class security and high network uptime, LiveOffice understands that trust is only gained by continuously meeting or exceeding expectations and honoring service level commitments to its clients and prospects,” said Brian Babineau, senior analyst for Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).

These are the 10 articles, all of which have been ratified by LiveOffice’s executive team and employees:

  1. The right to be treated fairly and honestly during your buying experience: We listen to your needs, requests and expectations, and provide a consultative approach during your decision-making process.
  2. The right to see a clear description of all charges with no hidden fees: We provide complete consistency across our quote, service contract and monthly invoice.
  3. The right to access your data anytime, anywhere: We understand that YOU own your data, so we provide easy access to it 24–7–365.
  4. The right to 99.99-percent uptime of your services: We utilize independent, third-party specialists to monitor the availability of our services to ensure optimal uptime.
  5. The right to data security, both in transit and at rest: We use encryption technology to securely transfer your email and safeguard it from unauthorized access and tampering.
  6. The right to e-discovery and audit support: We provide advanced search tools and all necessary certifications to help you quickly respond to any audit or e-discovery request.
  7. The right to escalate your concerns if you feel that your needs are not being met: We encourage you to contact our executive team if your needs are not met via our normal support channels.
  8. The right to new product releases at no additional cost: We add ever-increasing functionality with regular service upgrades, which are automatically available with your standard subscription.
  9. The right to provide input into our product direction: We routinely solicit your suggestions on desired features via client satisfaction surveys and regular client webcasts.
  10. The right to an update or resolution on service requests within 24 hours: We deliver 90-percent first-call resolution and promise to keep you updated until your issue is resolved.

In a recent LiveOffice survey of prospective clients, 69 percent of respondents had concerns over the security of their data when entrusting it to a third party. “It’s now more important than ever for SaaS vendors to provide clients with a high level of comfort regarding the security and ownership of their data. Unquestionably, LiveOffice’s Client Bill of Rights is a step in the right direction. It helps clients better understand what to expect from LiveOffice when it comes to technology enhancements, access to data and client support,” added ESG’s Babineau.

New Mail Archive Features

In addition to today’s Client Bill of Rights announcement, the company also introduced the latest enhancements to LiveOffice Mail Archive. The newest features provide users with enhanced tools for legacy data migration, advanced encryption within their archive and expanded mail server support.

  • LiveOffice CloudMerge: The CloudMerge migration tool automates the process of moving email data from both on-premise email servers and hosted services to the cloud-based Mail Archive with rapid speed, limited effort for administrators and minimal impact to end users.
  • NetApp DataFort-based encryption: While many companies are concerned about the security of their data in the cloud, Mail Archive eases these worries by providing greater protection for emails, attachments and instant messages stored in its archives. Now, all messages stored in Mail Archive can automatically be encrypted, using DataFort, a hardware-based encryption system from industry-leading storage vendor NetApp.
  • Lotus Notes/Domino support: In addition to seamless integration with Microsoft Exchange Server, Mail Archive now supports additional corporate mail servers, including Lotus Notes/Domino. While archive integrations with Lotus Notes/Domino servers have been historically challenging, Mail Archive is the first solution to deliver an extremely administrator-friendly process. Plus, this expanded support is great news for companies running heterogeneous messaging environments that also need a single, unified SaaS archiving solution to meet their mailbox management, compliance and legal discovery needs.

April 16, 2009 - Twisted Pair Solutions (www.twistpair.com), a pioneer in unified group communications software built on open standards and Fpweb.net (www.fpweb.net), a managed hosting services pioneer, today announced that they have formed a partnership to provide Interoperability as a Service (IaaS) solutions powered by WAVE® software technology. Many communications interoperability projects built around proprietary hardware solutions fail to get off the ground because they are too expensive, even with grant assistance. This hosted WAVE® solution offers clients the opportunity to quickly and cost-effectively achieve their inter-agency communications goals using the best of cloud computing and mission-critical voice systems.

IaaS extends to customers a familiar model used for providing telephony and internet access services. Organizations commonly deploy private communication systems for their internal voice communications and similarly operate and control their own local area IP networks. In order to be broadly interoperable with others, however, each of these organizations draws access and interconnection services from a variety of service providers. In this very same way, IaaS is intended to provide the service for organizations to connect their private push-to-talk radio systems, extending their access not only to others within their agency, but also - where appropriate and authorized - to neighboring constituent agencies. Just as voice and data services have converged to be carried over IP networks, IaaS provides inter-agency interoperability via Radio over IP (RoIP) technologies.

David Daniels, Fire Chief and Emergency Services Administrator for the City of Renton, Washington, welcomes any opportunity to deliver greater communications interoperability amongst the first responder community and appreciates the many operational and financial benefits that a managed service would provide. He says, “Too often we’ve limited ourselves to discussion about radios, when we should be having conversation about the full range of communications options. The City of Renton, like other cities in Washington and around this country, continually has to revisit its plans for wider communications interoperability because of the high cost of radio equipment that we taxpayers are finding more and more difficult to justify. Any alternate technologies that can enhance and extend what we already have, and is proven in its ability to deliver a mission-critical communications service, has my attention.”

IaaS offers a compelling alternative to large capital-funded projects because it presents a low risk approach to achieving a high level of interoperability, while offering an affordable and attractive pay-as-you-need-it managed service. In addition, interoperability can be expanded beyond the bounds of the subscribing agency by having access to other subscribers of the managed service. This service can be utilized by organizations of any size, regardless of the technology used by them for their intra-agency communications.

“We’ve had the opportunity to advance and harden the technology behind IaaS through several years of operational experience ranging from battlefield communications to dispatch and network operations center command and control,” said Tom Guthrie, President and CEO at Twisted Pair Solutions. “It’s time now to extend the operational value of this proven technology through a broad service offering, leveraging the scale and economy of cloud computing to provide a technically superior and highly cost-effective option to public sector organizations.

“Many State or local interoperability projects are facing delays, downgrades or complete cancellation because the legislature or governing bodies have balked at their multi-million dollar price tags. The purpose of this new service is to provide an immediate option for these organizations to extend the life and utility of systems they already have today, yet enable a much broader reach of inter-agency communications than what is enabled simply by the deployment of consistent radio system technology,” adds Guthrie. “Because WAVE® is a software technology platform, IaaS can scalably deliver the capability, flexibility and cost advantages that hardware alone simply cannot.”

Critics of software-based interoperability solutions point to a perceived lack of industry standards as a reason why public sector radio users should proceed with hardware upgrades. The Bridging Systems Interface (BSI), a Department of Homeland Security-sponsored VoIP specification for SIP-based bridging, and co-authored by Twisted Pair Solutions, has already been ratified and will help accelerate the deployment of large scale interoperable communications networks using solutions from vendors that show compliance. Operating as the interface between two bridging or gateway devices that can be used to connect disparate radio systems, the BSI is utilized in IaaS as one of the standardized means of access to the service.

Rob LaMear, Chief Executive Officer at Fpweb.net, is excited about the new software-as-a-service offering from Twisted Pair and his company. He says, “Not only does it make great economic sense for all first responders, but it has the potential to remedy a major weakness in our national infrastructure. WAVE® is a battle-hardened technology, and hosted WAVE® will be fed by the massive Fpweb.net cloud of redundant servers and data centers.”

In addition to the obvious cost-driven benefits of IaaS for larger projects, there is also a need for smaller organizations to affordably acquire solutions that employ software and networking technologies with which they may not be familiar. Many of these smaller organizations simply do not have the personnel resources necessary to develop and manage an effective interoperability solution and simply put the idea to the bottom of their list of projects.

Twisted Pair and Fpweb.net are currently offering a 90-day free proof-of-concept trial to potential users. General availability of IaaS is expected in 2H 2009.
