PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/02/12 -- THINKstrategies, a leading strategic consulting company, has published a Strategic Thinking Profile that examines Geminare's unique Cloud enablement capabilities and examines how the company is leveraging its Global ISV relationship and strategic alliance with Microsoft by embedding its latest Recovery as a Service solution into Microsoft's Windows Azure platform to create a new offering, called myVault Email Archive powered by Microsoft Windows Azure, concluding that, "The Geminare-Microsoft alliance represents a clear example of a win-win-win-win situation for the two companies, their partners and countless end customers that will benefit from this solution."

The THINKstrategies report addresses the topic of today's rapid growth of Cloud services, acknowledging the "accelerated demand on technology partners, enablers and trusted advisors to remain relevant and to provide value within the evolving Cloud ecosystem," and suggesting that providers looking to offer Cloud services would do well to explore high quality, feature-rich Cloud applications, solutions and enablement capabilities from Geminare, such as myVault Email Archive, that are "quickly becoming the differentiating, value-added solutions that partners must rely on to maintain and win customers."

The report's author, Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies and founder of the Cloud Computing Showplace and Cloud Channel Summit conferences, observes, "Geminare has emerged as a market leader" in Cloud enablement capabilities through its patented Cloud CORE Platform, and that Geminare's ability to capitalize on new market opportunities while at the same time preserving the value of its existing software assets and customer base, is what attracted Microsoft to team with Geminare, resulting in the strategic partnership to launch the myVault Email Archive offering as well as future Cloud-enabled applications.

Geminare's CEO and President, Joshua Geist, said, "Having worked together on a number of key events and educational sessions, I find that Jeff's insights into the Cloud-based RaaS and SaaS markets are outstanding, and we're very pleased to have been recognized by THINKstrategies for both our quality offerings and our increasing global market presence."
