Leostream Announces Support for XenSource Product Family

WALTHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 5, 2007 -- Leostream Corp. (www.leostream.com), a leading provider of Virtual Hosted Desktop software and physical-to-virtual conversion tools, today announced that its virtualization management tools will support the XenServer™ product family from XenSource, Inc., the leader in infrastructure virtualization solutions based on the open source Xen™ hypervisor. A hypervisor comprises the core of virtualization, enabling multiple operating systems to share a single computer system.

"Ten minutes to Xen, ten minutes to Leostream," said David Crosbie, Leostream CTO and founder. "The combined, low cost, solution is very quick to setup, and easy to use."

Reg Simon, network systems administrator for IT services company Campana Systems Inc., of Waterloo, Ontario, used the Leostream P > V conversion tool to virtualize a web server with XenEnterprise, XenSource's flagship virtualization product.

"It just worked," said Simon. "We followed the steps laid out by the wizard. No need to run fancy scripts. We were truly surprised by how well it worked and how easy the physical to virtual conversion ran. It's rare to experience an IT process that works as advertised. We plan to virtualize all our web servers and to eventually consolidate 10-12 boxes into virtual machines. Leostream stunned us with its pain-free performance."

"We are pleased to be supported by the Leostream virtualization management tools, and believe this will provide enterprises an opportunity to benefit from the performance benefits and decrease in IT costs and overhead associated with virtualization for server consolidation projects," said Benn Schreiber, director of business development at XenSource.

The XenSource product family includes XenEnterprise™, the leading enterprise-grade multi-OS platform virtualization solution, XenServer™ for high performance Windows virtualization and XenExpress™, a free, production-ready product for anyone interested in getting started with virtualization.
