PlateSpin joins VMware as a Technology Software Alliance Partner

Quoting from Press Release Network:

PlateSpin, a leader in solutions that bring flexibility and automation to the multi-architecture data center, joins VMware as a Technology Software Alliance partner. PlateSpin will work closely with VMware, the global leader in virtual infrastructure software for industry-standard systems, to develop integrated products and value-added solutions for customers that are adopting virtual infrastructure in the data center.

PlateSpin’s flagship conversion product, PowerP2V?, accelerates VMware virtual infrastructure deployments by automating the process of converting between physical servers and virtual machines, saving tremendous amounts of time and lowering the risk for server consolidation, test lab deployment and high availability projects. PlateSpin?s innovative conversion technology supports the migration of Windows and Linux based servers to VMware virtual infrastructure hosts. PowerP2V fully automates the process of performing physical-to-virtual (P2V) migrations without requiring users to install software agents, which allows users to remotely execute and monitor migration projects without requiring any physical contact with data center servers.

“We are very excited to be an official technology software alliance partner of VMware.” said Stephen Pollack, CEO of PlateSpin Ltd. “The partnership will give VMware customers the ability to convert large numbers of physical servers to virtual machines quickly and easily, enhancing the ability for the data center to evolve rapidly to the virtual infrastructure paradigm.”

?PlateSpin?s solutions allow us to provide extremely high value services to customers.? Said Sean Shea, Virtualization Specialist at Expert Server Group. ?We use PowerP2V as a solution to assess server inventory and automate conversions for our customers.?

?As a customer of VMware and PlateSpin, we are excited to see both companies working closely together through the VMware technology alliance program.? said John Lamb, Systems Engineer of Pearson Education. ?Currently, we are using PlateSpin?s automated server conversion technology to further leverage the capabilities of our VMware virtual infrastructure; and in the future, we are looking forward to continued innovation from both companies.?

PlateSpin will be appearing as a Gold sponsor at VMworld 2004, VMware’s first user conference.
