Adaptiva and Windows Management Experts Align to Cut SCCM Infrastructure Costs and Simplify Deployment
BELLEVUE, Wash., April 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Adaptiva, a leading provider of add-ins for Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), and Windows Management Experts, Inc. (WME), the premier Microsoft System Center solution integrator, today announced a partnership providing Adaptiva’s OneSite solution for WME’s Configuration Manager and Windows 7 & 8 deployment offerings. The partnership reduces operational costs for WME customers by eliminating the need for servers and additional network infrastructure at multiple locations. Together WME and Adaptiva enable consistent, fast and efficient Windows 7/8 operating system deployment (OSD) without impacting WAN traffic.
Additionally, WME customers will benefit from OneSite’s WAN optimization capabilities including its predictive bandwidth harvesting (PBH). With PBH, SCCM content is quickly moved without interrupting business-critical traffic by analyzing and identifying when the WAN is being underutilized. SCCM content is then distributed only once over the WAN, via this quickest route. At each location, OneSite caches the content in a virtual SAN created by orchestrating unallocated disk space on local systems, taking no space from end users. Furthermore, OneSite’s peer-to-peer PXE and virtual SMP make serverless, planet-wide, rapid OSD with task sequences a reality.
“Integration complexity and infrastructure costs for SCCM have always been a huge deterrent,” said Matt Tinney, system center engineer at WME. “This partnership was the logical next step to providing the best support for our customers. Instead of the months it traditionally takes large enterprise companies to deploy SCCM on their own, OneSite enables our customers to install the entire SCCM infrastructure in half the time, allowing them to hit the ground running and instantly leverage their investment.”
“WME on its own provides comprehensive Systems Center and Windows deployment solutions, but paired with Adaptiva, WME helps customers manage systems at multiple locations at a percentage of the cost of using SCCM without OneSite,” said Deepak Kumar, founder and CTO of Adaptiva. “Adaptiva continually strives to empower organizations to migrate more efficiently to SCCM 2012 and Windows 7 or 8. With this partnership we are now able to provide a complete systems management solution with great ROI to WME customers.”
