RapidScale Makes CloudOffice Available on Samsung Solutions Exchange

By Casey Houser

Cloud solutions provider RapidScale announced recently that it has partnered with Samsung to make its cloud services available on a mobile platform. A PR Web statement says customers will now be able to access RapidScale's CloudOffice, a suite of business application solutions, on the Samsung Solutions Exchange portal, a marketplace for mobile apps.

CloudOffice provides a range of applications for small and midsize business. Applications include Microsoft Office, MS Lync, MS Sharepoint, Adobe Suite, and Citrix Sharefile, as well as RapidScale's “Business Apps as a Service,” RapidShare's CloudCompliance, and unlimited cloud storage for its users. Applications run in a cloud-based virtual desktop environment, and customers can load their own business applications as they see fit.

Solutions Exchange offers customers a way to find similar applications that work on their mobile devices. They can work with the Exchange to access a virtualized mobile desktop environment with apps that cater to their needs as mobile users.

Tom Osvold, RapidScale's vice president of Carriers & MSO, commented on the nature of the business partnership and the benefits it will provide RapidScale users.

“The extremely high standards Samsung has established for entry into its solutions ecosystem is a testament to the industry leading position RapidScale’s cloud portfolio has attained, especially our CloudOffice and CloudDesktop platforms,” Osvold said. “We are excited for the opportunity to provide Samsung with an all-in-one Desktop Virtualization solution for their Galaxy® line of products as they continue to deliver comprehensive solutions for their SMB, Enterprise, and Carrier customers.”

As a part of its CloudOffice product, and because of the fact that it is cloud-based, RapidScale also offers disaster recovery for users' files and customized desktop environments. Redundant backups exist to eliminate the hazard of crashes on a single cloud server, saving data accessible in a customer's virtual environment. Users can also encrypt and archive their own data for enhanced security. In addition, CloudOffice works with a Microsoft Exchange server that allows employees to communicate through enterprise-grade email.
