Parallels and DataCore joined forces last month and are working now build a cost-effective solution which include virtualization and storage.
The press announcement doesn’t mention any product merge at the moment so this may start as just a bundle effort at the beginning.
It will be interesting to see how the Virtuozzo audience, which includes a lot of hosting providers, will welcome the new storage partner.
Parallels is clearly working to build a complete virtualization platform through exclusive partnerships and OEM agreements.
The company already secured the VDI tier thanks to a deal with Provision Networks.
In the future Parallels may build more partnerships like this in new segments of the virtualization market to match the 360-degrees offering the VMware is preparing to launch with VI 4.0.
