Scalent Systems today announced general availability of Scalent V/OE version 2.5, with enhanced workload and image portability functionality. Scalent claims to be the first company to deliver portability of Windows and Linux server images and associated provisioning of network connectivity & storage access across virtual andphysical machines in real time, without costly and time-consuming conversions.
With Scalent V/OE, IT organizations can dynamically provision for average demand and shift available resources as needed, in real time, to match business needs. Specific business systems can be redeployed as dictated by business priorities, time of day, or other policy-based criteria – so less hardware, software, and other resources are needed.
“Our customers consistently reduce their server populations by over 50% without sacrificing performance,” said Ben Linder, CEO of Scalent Systems. “Scalent V/OE allows IT organizations to extend the benefits of virtualization by rapidly provisioning servers, network, and storage at the physical level to quickly react to changing business needs.”
