OTTAWA, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Enabling partners to move up market and service mid-size businesses, N-able Technologies(R) today announced it will now include support of Microsoft's Windows Essential Business Server 2008. N-able's N-central(R) 6.7 software also integrates with Windows Server 2008, Small Business Server 2008 and System Center Essentials 2007.

Windows Essential Business Server combines full version software for the operating system, management, messaging and security into an all-in-one integrated solution, and provides a platform for service providers to increase the manageability and reliability of their mid-size clients' IT systems. N-able president & CEO Gavin Garbutt says the synergies gained by using these powerful technologies together provides partners with a competitive services advantage that extends their value up market and introduces new revenue streams and sales opportunities.

"Microsoft is pleased that N-able is providing support for SBS and EBS and helping our mutual partners enable managed services for their small and medium-sized customers," says Russ Madlener, director, Windows Server Group, Microsoft Corp.

"Microsoft's Essential Business Server 2008 combined with N-able's N-central increases our ability to manage, prevent and address IT concerns or system issues in real-time," says N-able partner Mike Ralston, managing director, SolSoft, a UK-based Microsoft Gold Certified Partner. "It's great to have N-able do the heavy lifting and integrate these technologies in such a way that enables us to enhance our service capabilities and more proactively address the needs of our clients."

N-able Technologies has successfully integrated N-central 6.7 with Windows Essentials Business Server 2008. Support includes Essential Business Server's operating system performance metrics, event log, remote control, management tasks, patch management and x86 and x64 architecture support. In addition, N-able is also actively working to help provide partners with the technical, education and sales resources needed to build awareness and successfully sell and service Windows Essential Business Servers.

"We take our technology alliances very seriously and see the market potential these integration efforts offer our channel partners," says Garbutt. "As more and more partners rely on our technologies to move up market and scale their offerings beyond SMB, the value of these integration efforts will quickly be realized and market adoption will soar."
