Verari Systems, developer of data center consolidation platforms utilizing blade-based computing and storage solutions, today announced that the Verari Systems’ VB1257 VMware ESX 3.5 certified blade – gasp -delivers twice the number of VMware virtual machines per blade than similar competitive blade offerings while consuming 50% less power.
On a per VMware image basis, the company claims the VB1257 for the BladeRack 2 XL (BR2-XL) platform provides better total cost of ownership than any competing blade server products. VMware provides TAP program members with tools to develop products that are complementary to VMware virtualization software and help deliver high-value solutions to our joint customers.
Verari Systems’ capability to run twice the number of virtual machines per blade provides organizations with compelling benefits including less capital expense through the reduction in the number of servers and the associated ongoing operational and environmental costs such as power, cooling, floor space utilization and management.
The VMware virtualization power of the VB1257 for the BR2-XL means users can combine up to 16 physical machines on to just one blade server, twice as many as competitive blade offerings while requiring only half the power of their offerings – reducing capital expenditure and operational costs by more than 50%. By doubling the number of VMware virtual machines to 16 VMs per blade, the VB1257 solution results in a cost savings of over $40,000 per year in power operational expense and equates to cutting 56,000 kilowatt hours, or approximately 32 tons of CO2 emissions, every year.
