Sanbolic Announces Services Provider Licensing for Cloud Hosting Storage Software

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) -  Sanbolic announced today that it is offering service provider licensing (SPLA) for its software storage solution for cloud hosting environments. Sanbolic's Melio 2010 adds centralized storage management, improved availability, and dynamic scalability to hosted Windows Cloud computing environments, and integrates easily with Windows Server Hyper-V virtualization and System Center Management components. Sanbolic software can be used with any industry standard SAN storage.

Sanbolic's Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) enables hosting providers to license Sanbolic products on a monthly basis to provide services and hosted applications to their end customers. This allows hosting providers to match software licensing cost with their revenue model from hosted virtual machines or web-based services.

Melio 2010 provides a unified storage platform for Microsoft Hyper-V, physical servers, and virtual machines running Windows applications. Customers can dynamically assign and manage shared storage resources in a cloud storage environment, including metering storage performance based on the service level purchased by the end customer. Because Sanbolic allows virtual machines to share access to data on SAN storage, cloud services can be dynamically scaled across multiple virtual machines to respond to changes in customer workload. Melio 2010 supports Hyper-V live migration, and can be used with System Center Virtual Machine Manager or Windows deployment services when dynamically provisioning new servers.

Sanbolic distributes its product solutions worldwide through a network of distributors, OEMs, VARs and system integrators. Sanbolic will be exhibiting at the Microsoft World Partner Conference July 12-15 in Washington, D.C. in Booth 879. Evaluation software can be downloaded at
