Scalable Software, Inc., a leader in IT Asset Management solutions for the Cloud Era, today announced it has acquired the entire portfolio of intellectual property and certain key assets of MoveOp, a division of NEON Enterprise Software.

Scalable plans to integrate the intellectual property into its Scalable LIVE! platform immediately and release new tools based on the integrated solution in early 2012. These tools will enable organizations, which are reviewing datacenter platform strategy, to eliminate the migration barrier often presented by having critical applications running in legacy Unix environments.
“The emergence of private and public clouds as an option for traditional Unix workloads has given rise to increased numbers of migration projects. With MoveOp’s extensive gap analysis technology and deep Unix discovery, Scalable can now offer its customers and partners high-value options to help migrate traditional workloads, which have been hitherto locked on legacy Unix, onto more contemporary Linux implementations,” says Mark Cresswell, CEO of Scalable Software. “The technical compatibility of the MoveOp products with our Scalable LIVE! Platform will yield significant integration synergies and enable us to accelerate development of those features our customers and partners have been asking for.”
“Eliminating the expensive lock-in that comes with traditional UNIX installations is an ongoing customer challenge. Migrating from UNIX to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server provides a low cost of ownership while also offering a stable, reliable operating system,” said Michael Miller, vice president of global marketing and alliances, SUSE. “There are important differences between UNIX and Linux, which is why administrators should leverage technologies that streamline processes and identify the gaps between the source and target machines at a sufficiently granular level to achieve a successful migration.”
Scalable has assumed all sales and marketing activities as well as development, technical support, training and professional services efforts for the MoveOp product family. Customers and channel partners will benefit from the dedicated team members that have extensive knowledge of the IT Asset Management market
