Scalent Reaches Agreement for HP to Resell Scalent V/OE Software on HP BladeSystem

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - November 26, 2007) - Scalent Systems, provider of infrastructure virtualization software for large data centers, today announced that Scalent V/OE software will be available through HP in December 2007 as part of the HP BladeSystem c-Class Solution Builder Program.

Scalent V/OE infrastructure virtualization software enables data center managers to react in real-time to changing business needs. It does this by dynamically changing the software stack that servers are running and how those servers are connected to networks and storage systems, without making physical changes to the infrastructure. This ability to make real-time server software, network connectivity and storage access changes adds greater infrastructure flexibility, drives down costs and increases deployment and failover capabilities of data center systems.

"We are pleased that HP is making Scalent V/OE available to their BladeSystem c-Class Server customers," said Kevin Epstein, VP Marketing of Scalent Systems. "Scalent's non-disruptive approach to infrastructure virtualization has been deployed across many of the Fortune 500 to dramatically improve utilization and agility of the physical and virtual servers in their data centers."

Making Scalent V/OE software available through the HP BladeSystem Solution Builder Program will enable customers to use their existing HP relationships, contracts and purchasing agreements to obtain Scalent software. Implemented in an HP environment, the software lets customers seamlessly add, swap, and failover between blade servers, while transparently maintaining the consistency and integrity of their business systems. This extends the functionality of HP's BladeSystem Insight Control and the recently announced enhancements to BladeSystem virtualization and power management features.

"The addition of Scalent V/OE to the HP BladeSystem c-Class Solution Builder portfolio should greatly improve infrastructure operations for IT administrators," said Paul Miller, vice president of Marketing, Enterprise Storage and Servers, HP. "Our customers will have a new solution to deploy or repurpose entire tiers of networked servers in minutes without manual intervention -- increasing performance, agility and building on HP's Adaptive Infrastructure strategy."
