VMware, a provider of desktop virtualization solutions, has announced that Citoc, a provider of managed and hosted IT solutions, has selected its management and virtualization platform, VMware Infrastructure, as its application environment for internal systems and client solutions.
Citoc has also set up a pre-production environment with VMware Lab Manager for cost-effective testing and training. This virtualized development environment minimizes the hardware that Citoc must dedicate to non-production uses.
James Garrett, COO of Citoc, said: We guarantee our clients 99.99% application availability. VMware makes that possible with capabilities like Distributed Resource Scheduler, VMotion and Site Recovery Manager. VMware also provides manageability with its VirtualCenter, and it enables us to provision virtual machines in less than five minutes.
