Metalogix and Microsoft Team Together to Launch Search First Migration Accelerator Free Tool
Free Search First Migration Accelerator Tool Enables Existing SharePoint 2007 Clients to Leverage Powerful New Search Capabilities Featured in SharePoint 2010
WASHINGTON, DC— November 17, 2010— Metalogix Software, the leading platform provider of simple-to-use, cost-effective Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange, and Cloud–based management solutions, today announced a free tool developed in conjunction with Microsoft to offer organizations a powerful and convenient way to adopt SharePoint 2010 search capabilities within an existing SharePoint 2007 environment. This will allow users to take advantage of:
- More accurate and relevant search results
- Improved scalability and performance
- Increased search flexibility and customization to address specific business requirements
“Understanding Search is the primary means in the enterprise for surfacing and locating information and as a result, has become a mission critical component of SharePoint deployments. The rise in adoption of SharePoint 2010 has led to more customers seeking to leverage the benefits of the new search architectures, whether Enterprise Search in SharePoint 2010, or through implementing FAST Search Server as part of their topologies. In either scenario, customers are looking to minimize the impact of upgrade and promote more rapid adoption – scenarios often include migrating or upgrading their existing SharePoint deployments to include search, or migrating components of their existing deployments,” said Bill Baer, Microsoft’s Technical Product Manager for SharePoint.
“Working with our partner Metalogix, Search First enables customers to upgrade their search infrastructure to SharePoint 2010 while maintaining a user experience their end users are familiar with - providing organizations a more granular approach to upgrade and allowing an upgrade or migration of existing deployments to occur over time,” stated Baer.
“Metalogix prides itself on providing easy to use tools and solutions for customers to leverage the robust features SharePoint has to offer. We were thrilled at the opportunity to work with Microsoft and help existing SharePoint 2007 customers to leverage new SharePoint 2010 search capabilities. This will help them better manage their SharePoint data and prepare for a move to SharePoint 2010 in the future,” says Julien Sellgren, CTO for Metalogix.
