Scalent Systems Named Best Virtualization Solution at 2007 LinuxWorld Conference and Expo

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - August 13, 2007) - Scalent Systems, a leading provider of server infrastructure repurposing software for large enterprises, today announced the Scalent Virtual Operating Environment (V/OE) has won the Product Excellence Award for the Best Virtualization Solution at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo held earlier this month in San Francisco. Scalent beat out a number of other virtualization technology providers to win the award for distinguished product innovation.

"Our continued momentum with clients and within the industry is the result of clear recognition that our adaptive infrastructure, the ability to have any failed server brought back in the space of boot time, in five minutes or less, is a game-changing technology that will drive down the cost of infrastructure design and deployment," said Kevin Epstein, vice president of products at Scalent. "Whether in terms of technical innovation or investment value, Scalent V/OE can deliver tremendous value to every data center in which uptime is critical to business success."

Today's data centers face escalating costs and reaction-time challenges stemming from out-of-control server sprawl, statically coupled server hardware, and increasingly stringent regulatory requirements for business continuity. These challenges result in a lack of IT agility in the face of rapidly changing operational demands, with correspondingly reduced bottom-line success. Unlike many traditional server failover or automation solutions, Scalent's software can meet all of these challenges. Scalent's solution addresses the entire data center environment, not just the individual server "box." Scalent's software enables data center operations owners to rapidly change entire systems and associated topologies -- which servers are running, what software is running on them, and how they're connected to network and storage -- without requiring physical changes to the infrastructure.
