IT services provider Datatrend Technologies has introduced a new virtualization appliance that helps clients build an affordable computing infrastructure with high levels of utilization, availability, automation and flexibility using the IBM BladeCenter server.
Datatrend has designed a appliance that comes complete with the server hardware, software, consulting services and support needed to jumpstart a server and client virtualization initiative. Virtualization-in-a-Box can help clients to manage and consolidate volumes of business data with the benefits of increased security, flexibility and improved disaster recovery, said Datatrend.
Designed with the reliable components, Virtualization-in-a-Box is built on the IBM BladeCenter for running business-critical workloads. Integrated with the BladeCenter hardware is VMware VI3 plus other virtual enablement tools which provide increased server utilization, along with improved performance, increased security, and reduced cost and complexity, added Datatrend.
Charlie Cox, senior vice-president of sales and marketing at Datatrend Technologies, said: Datatrend is dedicated to helping its clients improve their infrastructures through powerful virtualization technologies. Today’s IT organizations face many challenges, including growing capacity while conserving or reducing operating costs and improving service availability. We wanted to provide customers with a virtual infrastructure solution that is easier to deploy and administer with a faster time to value and overall lower cost of ownership.
