Future of EEC vs. Cloud Console

Recommended Posts

With the new cloud-based console ("My Emsisoft workspaces") in BETA,
I was wondering what the future holds for the "classic" (i.e. locally installed) EEC.

Having deployed EEC in my company, we might want to migrate to the cloud-based console
at some point in the future, but certainly not before it has become utterly reliable and stable.

For how long (rougly) is the classic EEC going to be supported in the future?

 

Oh, and two additional question that have crossed my mind:

1) What about the local update caching proxy that is supplied by EEC?
How is this feature going to be transferred to cloud-managed installations?
Are you planning some kind of peer-to-peer update caching similar to the
Delivery Optimization feature of Windows 10?

2) Is there going to be a way to import profiles from EEC to the cloud console
(including perhaps automatically transferring locally managed clients to being cloud-managed)?
That would ease the transition process quite considerably...

Thanks!
Raynor

Hi Raynor,

We currently don't have concrete plans to end Emsisoft Enterprise Console.
If we ever come to that point, we would make an announcement at least one year in advance to provide planning safety for our customers.

 

1) Local update caching will become available later.

2) We have no plans to offer a profiles migration path, for now.

Re-connecting existing devices from EEC to ECC will become an easy procedure and can be automated.

 

We are working hard to add new features to Emsisoft Cloud Console.

Feel free to start testing it and see how stable it is.
You can connect existing Emsisoft installs manually as of version 2019.3.

Thanks

Hi Frank,

thanks for the quick reply. Overall this sounds like a good plan.

1) Any hint on how this might work (as there won't be a local, centrally installed proxy on a server anymore...)

2) OK, not a big problem IMHO 😀

I will definitely do some testing in the near future 👍

Hi Raynor,

1)  yes there will be ;) 
Even current EEC update proxy is a separate process that runs separate from EEC's processes.

 

Thanks

1) OK, nice 😁

PS What about a dedicated "cloud console beta" section in the forum 😋

EDIT: Thanks for consolidating the various beta sub-forums into a more general "Beta Community" forum.
