Virtual Iron Announces General Availability of Its Breakthrough Virtual Computing and Infrastructure Management Platform

New Solution Increases Service Levels While Fundamentally Changing the Responsiveness, Agility and Economics of the Data Center

Acton , MA , July 27, 2005 – Virtual Iron Software, the leading provider of virtual computing and infrastructure management solutions, today announced the general availability of its award-winning Virtual Iron™ platform.   Now successfully installed at multiple customer sites, enterprises across several industries including financial services, manufacturing, government, healthcare and hosted service providers can today change the way in which they provision, manage and utilize their investment in data center deployments.

Delivering a Breakthrough Solution
Virtual Iron enables enterprise data centers to create virtual computing platforms that combine for the first time, the power of virtualization, clustering, and provisioning technologies with policy-based system management in an integrated, easy to deploy system. Virtual Iron allows customers to automate real-time response to changing business conditions to achieve unprecedented levels of flexibility, scalability and cost savings for enterprise data centers.  

With Virtual Iron, data center managers can combine all physical resources into a sharable infrastructure-wide pool. Hardware resources that include processors, memory and storage, as well as the network itself, can be dynamically allocated based on demand, increasing utilization without requiring time consuming provisioning and deployments. Instead, resources can be automatically provisioned based on policies, reducing latency and manual intervention.

“Virtual Iron defines virtualization in much broader terms that goes well beyond single server partitioning.   With today’s announcement we are delivering on our promise to provide enterprises with a next generation platform that breaks new ground in automatically managing virtualized application environments,” said John Thibault, President and CEO at Virtual Iron.   “Our early success in the marketplace with multiple customer deployments demonstrates our commitment to maximize enterprise-wide data center resources and deliver an immediate and impactful return on investment.”
