Scalent to Co-Host Infrastructure Virtualization Webinar With Forrester Research

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - January 14, 2008) -

What:         Ben Linder, CEO, Scalent Systems, and James Staten,
              principal analyst at Forrester Research, will co-host a
              webinar to discuss server and datacenter fail-over
              requirements and how the application of infrastructure
              virtualization can automate the real-time recovery of a
              server or an entire data center.

              For example, it's estimated that over 90% of Fortune 1000
              companies are not confident that they can completely fail-
              over to their remote data center within one hour. Given that
              the cost of downtime can be measured in millions of dollars
              per minute, companies with unreliable disaster recovery
              processes are taking a potentially fatal risk. According to
              the research firm Brilliant Ideas, LLC, 90% of companies that
              experience a week or more of data center downtime go on to
              fail within twelve months.

              For this online event Staten will lead off the discussion
              covering disaster recover issues, market trends, and the
              impact of further adoption of server virtualization. Linder,
              specifically, will discuss the application of infrastructure
              virtualization to address the challenges of the real-time
              recovery of servers -- whether replacing a single physical or
              virtual server in boot time, or leveraging storage
              replication to fail-over to remote facilities. Participants
              will also hear how Scalent customers are implementing
              cost-effective business continuity and infrastructure
              automation solutions while reducing server counts,
              simplifying manageability, and increasing reliability.

When:         Thursday, January 17 at 2:00PM EST / 11:00AM PST
