    services.

"Egenera's ability to help customers build truly reliable dynamic data centers is driving this region's high rate of growth.

Customers across Asia Pacific acclaim PAN Manager

PAN Manager by Egenera® is winning praise from new customers throughout the region.

At Digital China Financial Software, a provider of financial IT services, the system architecture was no longer meeting business demands. Li Yang, an IT Support Manager, was part of the team that reviewed market alternatives. "We knew Egenera could help us maximize our IT investment by providing scalable capacity, reducing downtime, and enabling rapid deployment," he said. "Lower TCO was the deciding factor and Egenera met all our requirements."

In the Shanghai region, PECRS is a major local fuel supplier, part of the global giant PetroChina. It has stringent uptime and availability demands and needed a secure and agile platform, now and in the future. "While other companies claimed they could execute virtualization and support our growth, we found their approaches restrictive, complicated and even unsuitable for true resiliency," said Jiang Hongquan, Head of the IT Center at the firm.

At the Hong Kong Housing Society, Peter C.W. Miao, Corporate Information Technology Manager, notes that "Egenera's open architecture leverages both Microsoft Windows and major Linux platforms, allowing HKHS to interoperate with other systems on different platforms."
