FastScale Technology to Showcase Latest Virtualization Solution at VMworld 2007

New FastScale Virtualization Product to Be Demonstrated in Booth 1301; FastScale Technology to Be Used in VMworld Labs for Rapid Provisioning of VMware ESX Server, the Foundation of VMware Infrastructure

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - FastScale™ Technology, Inc., provider of next generation software virtualization and provisioning solutions, today announced that it will showcase virtualization enhancements to its dynamic software infrastructure solution, FastScale Composer™ Suite, at VMworld 2007. VMworld 2007 is the industry's largest virtualization conference with 10,000 expected attendees that is being held on September 11-13 at Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. At VMworld, FastScale will demonstrate a new virtualization module of FastScale Composer Suite, the company's breakthrough technology that fully automates the process of building, managing and deploying both physical and virtualized server software environments.

In addition to FastScale demonstrations in VMworld booth 1301, FastScale's technology is being used for rapid deployment of VMware ESX Server in the VMworld Labs, hands-on training sessions that run throughout the conference. The FastScale technology enables rapid re-sets of VMware ESX Server environments. With a simple reboot of the classroom machine, a clean ESX Server environment will automatically be provisioned to bare metal to be ready for the next session of a Lab immediately.

"Our goal for VMworld is to show attendees first hand how FastScale technology is a perfect complement to their VMware Infrastructure," said Lynn LeBlanc, CEO of FastScale. "Only FastScale delivers software environments that are built and streamlined on the fly and deployed to virtual machines in seconds. And with the small footprint of FastScale environments, IT organizations can increase the number of virtual machines by three times or more without sacrificing performance. It's very compelling technology for VMware Infrastructure implementations."

With FastScale technology, IT organizations can achieve dramatic lifecycle cost savings and server utilization improvement by fully automating the process of building highly streamlined server software on the front-end, while dynamically deploying and seamlessly managing the environments on the back-end. The entire server infrastructure, both physical and virtual, is a dynamic pool of compute resources, able to run any application at any time.

At VMworld 2007, attendees will be able to see these capabilities live and discuss the new technology with product experts. VMworld draws thousands of IT professionals and executives, developers, technology providers, and industry experts from around the world to participate in this annual event and learn more about the latest trends and innovations in virtualization.
