Thu, 4th Apr 2024

Nerdio, a company specialising in advanced solutions that help maximise Microsoft technologies for organisations of all sizes, has unveiled significant enhancements to its product line. The upgrades cater to Nerdio Manager for Enterprise (NME), version 6.0 and Nerdio Manager for MSP (NMM), version 5.0, introducing Generative AI across the Microsoft Azure platform.

These upgrades extend beyond just Azure infrastructure, covering broad endpoint management and application delivery enhancements. The aim of these improvements is to equip customers with a range of tools to augment their operational efficiency, streamline their tasks, and derive the utmost value from their tech-based investments.

Vadim Vladimirskiy, CEO of Nerdio, stated, “As technology evolves, so does Nerdio's commitment to empowering IT professionals worldwide. Our latest product updates will help organisations consolidate and cost-optimise their cloud-based desktop environments while unlocking AI-powered capabilities.”

Among its multiple achievements, NME has been associated with remarkable cost savings, reportedly as much as 75% in Azure expenses compared to unoptimised deployments. Enhancements in NME now include storage optimisation for Azure Files and Azure NetApp Files, Log Analytics, disk swapping, Advanced Predictive Drain Mode, and various scaling triggers. As a result, Nerdio Manager ensures harmonious sync between Azure infrastructure and real-time user demands.

A senior engineer at Be Someone Unique (BSU), Jeremy Otten, said, “Nerdio facilitated the implementation, simplifying deployment and ongoing management. Their proactive support and creative problem-solving were invaluable, making our collaboration seamless and highly effective.”

Nerdio Manager for MSP (NMM) 5.0 transforms the operational capabilities of MSPs while bolstering security and enhancing user satisfaction, all while maximizing margins. Anchored by features like AssistPro, an AI-powered in-app assistant delivering instant, context-aware support, and Unified App Management (UAM) ensuring consistency and simplicity across customer environments, NMM 5.0 streamlines app deployment, enhances security, and ensures a uniform app experience. Additionally, with enhancements like Boot Diagnostics Insights leveraging Azure AI OCR and boot image validation, and features such as Microsoft Defender for Endpoint Support and Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) capabilities, NMM 5.0 empowers MSPs to optimize operations, strengthen security measures, and deliver unparalleled service excellence to their clients.

"As we embark on our journey with Nerdio Manager for MSP 5.0 and embrace its AI-driven features like AssistPro, we're anticipating a future of even more streamlined services for our clients," says Ben Greene, CEO, President, Greene Information Systems.

"With AI at the helm, we're on the brink of a transformative era where complex challenges are met with simplified solutions. AssistPro's ability to translate queries into actionable insights holds immense promise for our team's efficiency and productivity."

With advancements incorporating AI-driven automation and superior application and endpoint management, Nerdio Manager has indeed set industry standards, providing organisations with the tools for deploying Microsoft cloud technologies.
