With Windows Azure as a foundation, our customers and partners are now empowered with an unprecedented level of reliability, flexibility, storage capacity and data protection.

M-Files Inc., the developer of M-Files easy document management software and the cloud-based document management service M-Files Cloud Vault, today announced that all new M-Files Cloud Vault customers and channel partners will be deployed via Windows Azure, enabling them to take advantage of Microsoft’s highly-scalable and reliable cloud-based platform and geographically distributed data centers. In addition, all existing M-Files Cloud Vault users will be migrated to Windows Azure during the next few months.

The Azure-based M-Files Cloud Vault will be showcased at the Microsoft 2011 Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) at booth 743 on July 10-14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The Windows Azure platform includes a cloud services operating system and a set of developer services hosted in Microsoft data centers that provide the functionality to build applications that span from consumer Web to enterprise scenarios. Azure reduces the need for up-front technology purchases and enables developers to quickly and easily create applications running in the cloud by using standard Microsoft development tools such as Visual Studio and the Microsoft .NET Framework.

“With Windows Azure as a foundation, our customers and partners are now empowered with an unprecedented level of reliability, flexibility, storage capacity and data protection,” said Dr. Petri I. Salonen, senior vice president of Microsoft Global Partnerships with M-Files Inc. “M-Files Cloud Vault on Azure interfaces directly with the Microsoft core product stack providing superior data and application integration and a seamless user experience. It also enables our customers and partners to rapidly deploy custom, industry-specific solutions for document and records management, business process automation and compliance, while minimizing their IT infrastructure investments.”

M-Files is a professional document management system that enables companies and organizations of all sizes in a variety of industries to make dramatic gains in efficiency and productivity by improving the way they organize, manage and track business documents. M-Files eliminates the need for chaotic Windows folders by organizing documents using simple tags and keywords. With M-Files, users store documents in a centralized vault, the same as they would on any other hard drive on their system or network, but rather than searching for the right folder, users simply save documents to the vault and tag. M-Files works like Windows Explorer, so the vault is accessed like My Documents, it's just faster and more secure. Finding files is as simple as typing in a tag or performing a full-text search right from the Open or Save dialog box of any Windows application. M-Files Cloud Vault, in effect, seamlessly connects every application on the desktop directly to the cloud.

M-Files Cloud Vault running on Windows Azure is offered as a service priced at $39 per month, per user. M-Files is also available as an on-premise software solution that can be purchased as a paid-up license. For more information, please contact M-Files Inc. directly at sales(at)m-files(dot)com.
