LabTech Software is putting its head in the cloud with the release of the cleverly named LabTech Cloud, a new cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (Saas) for managed service providers.
The company, known for creating remote monitoring and management solutions, claims that the new cloud SaaS is just the first in a line of cloud-compatible services and technologies that it hopes to unveil in time.
In an effort to help curb operational costs and increase profits for its partners, LabTech Cloud will let service providers offer remote management services to their clients with little hassle and investment on their part. The service was created because, originally, these same clients would run into entry barriers concerning the cost, time and effort needed to establish an infrastructure and data center that was powerful enough to handle all of the necessary software and data they were going to use.
LabTech Cloud operates just like the full version of LabTech's traditional remote monitoring and management product and is easily installed with minimal setup. Also, updates will be "deployed rapidly" to LabTech partners around the world.
Licensing fees will be based on a pay-as-you-go model with free upgrades when available.
