AutoVirt Migrates Data

NASHUA, N.H. -- AutoVirt, Inc., today announced the official launch of the company, as well as its roadmap to deliver the industry's first fully automated and transparent data migration solution geared specifically for networked Windows file systems. In conjunction with the launch of the company, AutoVirt also announced the successful completion of its A-round of financing of $4.5 million to date from world-renowned investors Sigma Partners and Kepha Partners. The funds will be utilized for product development and preliminary go-to-market activities.

Historically, the high-end of the market has enjoyed a choice from a number of product offerings. However, these data migration products have proven to be too expensive for mid-range companies to employ. AutoVirt software will leverage its automated virtualization technology to provide mid-range IT Managers with a sophisticated, yet easy to use, transparent data migration solution. With AutoVirt, these IT Managers will no longer have to devote nights and weekends to the tedious job of migrating data. AutoVirt will offer the ideal solution -- an easy to acquire, deploy, and manage solution at a highly affordable price. Finally, mid-range IT Managers will have the freedom to focus on more critical revenue generating activities.

"After 50 years of advancements in commercial IT, why is it that year after year we still are talking about the same tactical challenges? Data migration is still a huge problem that everyone has to contend with -- an issue exacerbated by exponential data growth. It is astounding to me that so few focus on solving this real world problem," said Steve Duplessie, founder and senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). "Hat's off to AutoVirt who is doing just that. Out of the gate, the AutoVirt solution will help IT managers to overcome one of their greatest pain-points -- Windows data migration."
