A new framework to help clients select the virtualization architecture appropriate for their enterprises
IT services provider Unisys has announced enhancements to its line of enterprise servers along with a framework designed to help clients select the virtualization architecture appropriate for their enterprises and reduce the costs of implementing and managing a virtualized environment.
Unisys said that it is making the new VMware vSphere 4, the latest version of the VMware virtualization software, available across the entire line of Unisys enterprise servers. The company has also launched new models of the ES3000 and ES5000 families that use the new dual-core and quad-core Intel Xeon processor 5500 series.
Supported by VMware vSphere 4 software and Intel Xeon 5500 series processors, the new Unisys ES3000 and ES5000 server solutions, combined with Unisys advisory and implementation services, allow clients to improve their total cost of ownership with a choice of scale-out and scale-up virtualization approaches, according to Unisys.
Unisys said that the new Unisys server models benefit from Intel virtualization technology, which is implemented in the Xeon 5500 series processors. This technology reportedly reduces demands placed on virtualization software, allowing clients to consolidate applications and handle heavier workloads per server.
