Mashup of Cloud Apps to Launch at Cloud Computing Expo Europe

Applications include email, document management, time and attendance, web meeting, invoicing, and inventory management

eazybusiness to launch the ultimate mashup of open source cloud apps with over 20 business management and productivity applications aimed at small and medium-sized businesses. eazybusiness will launch the product at Cloud Computing Expo Europe 2009 (, colocated with the first annual Virtualization Conference Europe 2009 (, which will take place on May 18-19, 2009, in Prague, Czech Republic.

If you're tiring of the vanilla look and feel of Google and Zoho applications, take a look at the new eazybusiness offering. The applications include email, document management, time and attendance, web meeting, invoicing, inventory management and sales force management. eazybusiness aims to add applications to its offering on a monthly basis.

"With eazybusiness we wanted to solve a lot of the issues that inhibited the uptake of open source such as the technical ‘know how' that was required to install, support and maintain the applications. Putting the applications in the cloud and working on solutions to allow for multi-tenancy, application provisioning, single sign-on and application interoperability allowed us to develop a platform for the delivery of any open source or SaaS applications to the end user in a ‘trouble free' way," said Pat Bolger, CEO of eazybusiness.

What is truly unique about the eazybusiness offering is the way in which the applications are presented to the user. When a user signs up to eazybusiness, their applications become available immediately without any need for the user to worry about installation, hosting, backups, security, etc. All the applications are accessed over the web through a "virtual desktop" or webtop that is automatically created for each user. The webtop is similar to the "windows" look and feel and is therefore instantly familiar to the user. Companies that sign up to eazybusiness are also given a free company website, the content of which can be updated and changed over the web at any time.

"We have also developed connections to third-party clouds; in the near future we will offer cloud-based applications from multiple third-party cloud and SaaS providers. Once completed, this will allow for single consolidated access to virtually any web application that you would use to run your business", said Christopher Karatzinis, COO and CTO of eazybusiness.

The eazybusiness offering is free for the first 90 days and costs from as little as €3 per user per month thereafter. In addition, eazybusiness offers its eazyconnect package for free for companies that have less than 10 users. The eazyconnect package includes corporate email, shared calendar, shared tasks, document management, online chat and online meeting applications.
