Ensim Unify Enables Advanced Automation and Management of Microsoft Lync
Santa Clara, CA — November 8, 2011 — Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of solutions to manage, orchestrate, and automate private, public and hybrid cloud infrastructure, today announced that service providers can leverage Ensim Unify, with its multi-tenant and dedicated infrastructure capability, in combination with its connectors for Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP2 and Microsoft Lync to offer a full range of managed and hosted Lync based services to support their customers.
As Microsoft evolves its approach to hosting multi-tenant Exchange and Lync, service providers have been looking to address various market requirements, particularly in relation to unified communication that includes voice functionality. Ensim Unify, in both dedicated and multi-tenant modes, provides service providers with a platform to address these complicated challenges associated with infrastructure architecture.
Ensim Unify Group Manager for Active Directory and Exchange automates and streamlines the provisioning and management of security groups and distribution lists. By automating IT policy guidelines and business rules, end-users can be delegated the rights to create and manage their own security or distribution groups without requiring administrator intervention. Automated housekeeping and maintenance functions ensure that all group objects stay in order and any unused groups are appropriately archived or removed as defined by business rules and IT policies. Ensim Unify provides comprehensive group management functionality and delegated administration capabilities that maintain compliance while reducing the IT overhead associated with managing this critical part of the collaboration infrastructure.
In conjunction with other Ensim offerings, such as Ensim Unify Cloud Identity Sync and Ensim Unify Cloud Manager for Dynamic Datacenter solutions using System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), service providers can integrate their customers’ on-premise Active Directory and provision virtual machines with applications dedicated to particular customers.
“Ensim has been providing what is now referred to as cloud infrastructure management for over 12 years and automated management for unified communications for over seven years,” said David J. Wippich, CEO of Ensim Corp. “Bringing these technologies together to create a seamless infrastructure represents the next logical step in the advancement of Ensim’s technology leadership.”
