VM6 Software Announces Branch Office and SMB Solution with Microsoft



    
    New virtualization solution and marketing initiatives provide high
    availability technology on Microsoft virtualization platform
    

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Sept. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - (VMworld 2009) - VM6 Software
today announced that VM6 Virtual Machine ex Server(TM) (VM6 VMex) high
availability software has become part of the Microsoft virtualization solution
ecosystem and will be promoted through marketing activities.
    VM6 VMex is second generation software that provides affordable software
solutions to extend the benefits of enterprise-class virtualization to
distributed IT infrastructure environments. VM6 technology leverages Microsoft
Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008
R2 to create an internal cloud that can provision, consolidate, manage and
protect all of the remote office, branch office (ROBO), and small and medium
size business (SMB) workloads without the need for expensive hardware or
storage area networks (SANs). Easy to install, configure and manage, VM6
solutions do not require any specialized skill sets other than Microsoft
Certified System Engineers (MCSEs).
    "VM6 VMex was designed to allow CIOs to address cost and manageability
issues of ROBO and SMB IT infrastructures. By combining Microsoft Windows
Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V virtualization technology and VM6 VMex high
availability technology, companies are now able to bring the benefits of
virtualization to their distributed IT environments without complexity and at
1/5th of the cost of alternative solutions" said Claude Goudreault, Founder
and CEO of VM6 Inc. "Our work with Microsoft will contribute to the adoption
of virtualization outside of main datacenters by giving CIOs the level of
assurance they need to go ahead with these projects."
    "Our work with VM6 Software sets the course for more integration of VM6
VMex with Microsoft virtualization products so that customers can use
virtualization in their branch offices or small and medium businesses," said
Dai Vu, director of virtualization solutions, Server and Tools Business at
Microsoft Corporation. "VM6 Software is one of the first companies to provide
virtual storage pooling solution that is integrated with Windows Server 2008
R2 Hyper-V."
