Facilitates Powerful Portfolio of Cloud and On-Premise Services
RAMSEY, NJ–(Marketwire – December 14, 2011) – Comport Consulting Corp., a leading provider of data management and infrastructure solutions for commercial enterprises and healthcare providers, today announced its strategic partnership with NaviSite, Inc. This partnership expands Comport’s cloud-based offerings, which include Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and managed services, and complements Comport’s expertise in on-premise services and deployments.
“Comport’s partnership with NaviSite is a definitive step in shaping our portfolio of cloud-enabled solutions,” said Mike Vencel, Comport’s VP of Sales. “Our partnership with Navisite brings together Comport’s expertise in designing complex computing platforms with a world class enterprise service provider, to give our customers unprecedented cloud choices and control.”
Available immediately, Comport offers three Cloud services: Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Managed Application Services, and Managed Messaging Services. These Cloud services include usage-based billing to eliminate upfront capital expenditures, reduce recurring operational costs, and speed deployments. Services include 24/7/365 monitoring and support, geographically dispersed data centers to augment built-in disaster recovery capabilities, and various Service Level guarantees. Comport’s managed services are supported by the NaviCloud™ computing platform, which delivers services on best-of-breed technology infrastructure from leading vendors including VMware™ and Hewlett-Packard.
“We are excited to partner with Comport in the delivery of next-generation cloud services,” said Craig Sandman, Sr. Director of Channel and Alliances at NaviSite. “As customers move IT compute resources to the cloud to accelerate speed-to-market, ease capex-intensive build-outs, and enable more efficient delivery of IT resources, they are looking to trusted IT partners to lead them. Comport has spent years delivering valuable IT solutions and is uniquely positioned to guide customers through their cloud deployments.”
Comport’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service on NaviCloud™ allows customers to purchase slices of computing resources on an as-needed basis — such as memory, processor, storage, and network — with a “pay for use” model. Infrastructure-as-a-Service can reduce capital and operating costs; businesses don’t have to build out and manage their own data centers or pay for underutilized resources. In addition to upfront consultation, Comport provides strategy, architectural and implementation services. Guaranteed service levels and customized solutions are available.
The second, Managed Application Services, consists of end-to-end functional and technical support for cloud-located applications, with security and reliability suitable for mission-critical applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft Enterprise. The Managed Application Service provides on-boarding, application management, and lifecycle management services. These Managed Application Services save time, money, and manpower by handling resource-intensive IT processes including application installation, customization, upgrades, and enterprise roll-out. Risk is reduced through a compliance-driven approach consisting of thorough change management, production control, third-party audits, stringent security standards, customer transparency, documented policies, and contractual guarantees.
Comport also offers cloud-enabled Managed Messaging Services through Navisite for best-in-class, fully-hosted and managed messaging solutions. Teams of messaging experts support enterprise email and collaboration infrastructure, including Microsoft® Exchange and SharePoint®, to offer full flexibility and functionality of applications in a secure, cost-effective, and reliable manner. IT staff is freed up to deliver critical solutions to enterprise end-users; operational efficiencies are increased with less time spent monitoring and upgrading boxes.
