Equilibrium and Microsoft Work Closely on InstantOn Azure Integration

Enterprises Save Months of Development Time Deploying the Complete MediaRich ECM for SharePoint 2013 on Azure in Just Minutes

CHICAGO May 6, 2015 [Microsoft Ignite 2015 MSFT] — Equilibrium (https://equilibrium.com), the world’s leading enterprise content-management and automated mobile media-delivery company, today will showcase its new InstantOn, a new Azure-hosted development of MediaRich ECM for SharePoint 5, at the Microsoft Ignite Conference in Chicago, following the news that the leading all-media server, MediaRich Server 4, is arriving on the Azure Marketplace this month. The first public demonstrations of this new solution will be at booth No. 250 at the conference.

MediaRich ECM for SharePoint is the leading tool for enhancing SharePoint environments, turning them into high-performance visual management platforms, which have been used on premises by hundreds of customers for years. The market’s demand for cloud-based infrastructure continues to grow, and MediaRich ECM for SharePoint is already being deployed in public clouds.

However, the required deployment time delays many of the cloud’s advantages. Equilibrium has been working closely with Microsoft to create a breakthrough in deploying a complete multi-server platform based on SharePoint that cuts deployment time down dramatically.

“As one of Microsoft’s premier partners, Equilibrium has always been on the leading edge of enhancing customer experience. Microsoft has worked closely with Equilibrium to help create a highly scalable MediaRich ECM for SharePoint,” said Steve Guggenheimer, Corporate Vice President and Microsoft Chief Evangelist. “Equilibrium is helping to accelerate the business of modern enterprise customers with powerful functionality and interoperability.”

This offering on Microsoft’s Azure Marketplace delivers a new experience which allows the deployment of an entire SharePoint farm with MediaRich ECM in a matter of minutes. This means that customers will have SharePoint libraries that have the MediaRich ECM enhancements like automatically created multi-video for HTML5 browser and mobile device playback, inline video playback and full size or screen video viewing without any third party plug-ins, the revolutionary UniZoom™ viewer for viewing documents and images in place. All switched on instantly using InstantOn™, hosted in their Azure account in no time at all.

“The solution we have created for the provisioning and deployment of our product with a SharePoint farm will save customers months of work in just a matter of minutes,“ said Chris Duke VP of Product at Equilibrium. “The cost savings will pay for itself, freeing up valuable development resources”.

The product will be available in the Azure Marketplace in the coming weeks and MediaRich Server is available today here
