Gale Technologies' Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Cloud Service Offerings Reduce IT Provisioning Costs

Relationships With NetApp and Cisco Enhance the Power of GaleForce Automated Provisioning and Workflow Orchestration Software

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) -  Gale Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions that simplify the provisioning and workflow orchestration of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings, today announced the company has formed relationships with NetApp and Cisco to build an ecosystem foundation for delivering Infrastructure-as-a-Service and private, public, or hybrid cloud offerings.

"Technologies from these leading companies are transforming the conventional data center by breaking down the management silos and delivering more cost-effective, on-demand services," said Nariman Teymourian, Chairman and CEO of Gale Technologies. "Our GaleForce solution enables users to easily automate and provision virtual and physical resources from a single platform -- within the lab, data center, or in the cloud -- whenever needed. With GaleForce, users can transform IT silos into a highly elastic, self-service infrastructure model -- delivering services in less time and with fewer resources, saving our customers significant time and money."

These relationships enhance the power of GaleForce, an advanced, end-to-end resource automation and orchestration platform that is proven to help enterprises, service providers, network equipment manufacturers (NEMs), and software vendors do more with fewer physical, virtual and human resources -- resulting in reduced expenses associated with IT Provisioning.

NetApp and Cisco are proving that a virtualized, dynamic data center represents one of the most effective foundations for cloud computing and the realization of infrastructure-as-a-service. The GaleForce ecosystem brings together these leading data center and cloud computing vendors to provide a seamless transition to a self-service model for provisioning both data center and cloud resources. Gale Technologies is an Advantage Alliance Partner with NetApp, and a Solution Developer in the Cisco Developer Network Program. Gale is also a solution provider to NetApp and Cisco, both of whom use GaleForce-based solutions in their own dynamic labs and data centers.

"The concept of the dynamic data center provides the enabling cloud computing foundation for enterprises and service providers to deliver infrastructure-as-a-service and meet rapidly changing business requirements," said Niall Doherty, Director, Customer POC Labs and Lab on Demand at NetApp. "Our partnership with Gale leverages its unique GaleForce platform to address the need for a more efficient, flexible, and agile approach to provisioning dynamic data center and cloud-based resources with an on-demand, self-service model."
