Egenera Welcomes New Partners to Assured Solution Alliances Program

MARLBORO, MA--(Marketwire - June 30, 2008) - Egenera Inc., the data center virtualization company, today announced three new members to the Egenera® Assured Solution Alliances program: Axeda, Micron Technology and Transitive. The Egenera Assured Solution Alliances program leverages a technical assurance process designed to optimize the interoperability of third-party software solutions with Egenera virtualization solutions. The relationships forged between Egenera's support organization and each member's support team create highly integrated, seamless service standards for joint-customer engagements.

Axeda

Axeda Corporation delivers secure remote service and support capabilities to some of the world's leading manufacturing companies and large enterprises. The award-winning Axeda® ServiceLink™ solution helps companies proactively service and support products to drive optimal uptime at the lowest possible cost.

Axeda's relationship with Egenera strengthens the remote service and support capabilities of the highly available, flexible Egenera platform, which eliminates the need to dedicate fixed infrastructure to applications. Combined, the two solutions enable manufacturers and enterprise data center administrators to reduce service expenditures, improve security and achieve compliance. Through comprehensive testing, Axeda ServiceLink has been validated to run on the Egenera system.

Micron Technology

Micron is recognized as one of the world's most innovative and efficient manufacturers of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) and NAND Flash memory, offering customers a range of memory solutions that fuel today's advanced digital products, whether they are looking for high-density, high-bandwidth or low-power. Addressing the low-power challenge, Micron's Aspen Memory® family of energy-efficient memory products are designed to lower data center server power consumption. By implementing Micron's Aspen Memory products, data centers can reduce memory power consumption by up to 60 percent.

To keep power consumption down, Egenera has designed Micron's line of energy-efficient Aspen Memory products into its Egenera® BladeFrame® systems. Egenera is experiencing up to a 17 percent reduction in server memory power consumption by utilizing Micron's 1 Gb-based 1.5-volt DDR2 Aspen Memory modules in its platforms.

Transitive

With more than 10 million copies of its cross-platform virtualization technology deployed worldwide, Transitive is a leader in providing solutions that allow the transportability of software applications across multiple hardware platforms. Transitive's award-winning QuickTransit™ solution allows software applications that have been compiled for one processor or operating system to run on a system with different characteristics, without any source code or binary changes and at speeds comparable to native ports.

QuickTransit allows data center managers to transport enterprise applications quickly and easily from legacy hardware to open, standardized platforms without incurring the costs and delays of porting projects, and with little disruption to end users.

"We're thrilled to welcome such high caliber new partners into the Egenera Assured Solution program," said Kathy Yenke, vice president, Business Alliances at Egenera. "Customers tell us that close relationships between their preferred vendor partners allow them to experience choice, flexibility and most of all, peace of mind that their solutions will run seamlessly on their Egenera systems based on rigorous certification testing."
