Adacor Hosting GmbH and Sanbolic Provide Cloud Managed Service Using Melio 2010 and VMware vSphere 4

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 31, 2010) -  Sanbolic announced today that German hosting company Adacor ( is using Melio 2010 with Windows 2008 R2 on VMware vSphere 4 Enterprise virtual machines to provide for shared storage for a cloud managed service offering. Adacor has deployed this solution on Intel Modular Server infrastructure.

Melio 2010 enables VMware virtual machines to concurrently access data on SAN storage. This allows Windows IIS to scale across virtual machines, while presenting a single copy of content to the network. In addition, Melio provides simplified management of storage resources, allowing the system administrator to focus on the solution rather than the back end storage.

When used in conjunction with industry standard SAN storage, Melio 2010 provides centralized provisioning and management of logical volumes, as well as shared access to storage volumes for storage consolidation, application availability, and scale out. Melio 2010 now includes storage traffic shaping and quality of service management that allows granular management of storage bandwidth. The storage environment can be dynamically expanded, and software-based mirroring and VSS-based snapshot capability provide flexible tools for data protection.

"We wanted to utilize the performance of shared SAN storage and avoid the overhead of using a network file share," said Alexander Lapp, COO of Adacor. "Melio gives us a simple configuration and a simple structure for providing a shared data LUN to virtual machines running on VMware vSphere 4."

Sanbolic distributes its product solutions worldwide through a network of distributors, OEMs, VARs and system integrators. Sanbolic will be exhibiting at the VMworld August 30th - September 2nd in San Francisco, CA in booth 1719. Evaluation software can be downloaded at
