Last week, Bull unveiled an all-in-one virtualization server certified ‘Virtualized with VMware’, which it said will simplify, secure, and reduce implementation costs of virtualized infrastructures.
The NovaScale VMBox virtualization server offers storage sub-systems and pre-loaded software, as well as Bull’s Calypso backup product. Bull said configurations are pre-integrated to enable faster deployment and lower costs. The first two NovaScale VMBox configurations support VMware ESX Server 3.5, with the VMware VirtualCenter Foundation management platform hosted on a separate NovaScale server.
Olivier Gaumont, director of enterprise server business unit at Bull, said: “As a pre-integrated and tested solution, NovaScale VMbox provides high availability through a complete redundancy of components and a total compliance with VMware recommendations.”
