VKernel today announced a partnership with Xcedex, a North American VMware premier partner. Under the agreement, Xcedex becomes a VKernel Gold Partner that will resell VKernel’s Suite of Virtual Appliances for analyzing and monitoring capacity, implementing chargeback, and gaining cost visibility in VMware ESX environments to its growing customer base.
The VKernel Virtual Appliance Suite for Systems Management is a set of “plug-and-play” virtual appliances designed to quickly address real world systems management challenges as organizations migrate to VMware virtual environments.
Xcedex’ X-Factor solution set enables its customers to quickly and cost-effectively take virtualization from concept to production. Based on IT lifecycle principles, X-Factor has been custom developed to accelerate virtualization deployments for Xcedex’ client and ensure the projects are successful. X-Factor consists of four phases (prove, plan, build, and maintain) that include custom services and vendor products.
“We have strategically aligned ourselves with industry innovators specializing in virtual infrastructure solutions. Working very closely with their sales and technical teams, we bring complete, robust solutions to our clients,” said Steve Audette, director of professional services at Xcedex. “VKernel’s products fit perfectly into our X-Factor solution set and enable our customers to experience the benefits of virtualization throughout the deployment lifecycle.”
