Ontrack for Exchange migration

01 Sep 11

Demand from New Zealand resellers prompted Kroll Ontrack and Soft Solutions to launch a partner-specific version of Ontrack PowerControls to assist with Microsoft Exchange migrations.
Adrian Briscoe, Kroll Ontrack ANZ general manager, says the partnership with Soft Solutions – creating the Soft Solutions Ontrack PowerControls Partner Edition – is the first time the software, traditionally used by larger OEMs, is available in this manner. "This is very much a targeted service for resellers.”
Paul Leslie, Soft Solutions business development manager, says the solution provides not only a fast migration to Microsoft Exchange 2010, but also the opportunity for resellers to leverage customers into Exchange 2010.
"We’ve seen a lot of interest from the user community to migrate to Exchange 2010, but the job is a big, challenging one and it costs – it’s not something you can just set up and go home, you have to be there while it’s happening. It’s a job fraught with problems, yet the benefits Exchange 2010 offers are significant,” Leslie says. "With Ontrack PowerControls the process is not as painful, and clients who might otherwise stay with 2003 may opt to migrate.”
Briscoe says PowerControls can cut migration time from two to three days to a matter of hours.
Aaron Bhashkar, Soft Solutions NZ brands manager, says the product will not be offered to end-users.
A special rate of $950 ex gst, per technician, per annum is available until the end of September, with the company also allowing multi-year subscriptions at the same rate. Standard pricing will be $1195 ex gst per technician, per year. The software is delivered via a USB security dongle and a software license and includes Ontrack PowerControls for 100 mailboxes. Users also get the ExtractWizard Backup Agent Add-ons, PST as a Source and Agent for Advanced Searching.
