Scalent Systems Nominated in 5 Categories for SYS-CON Virtualization Readers' Choice Awards

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2008) - Scalent Systems, the leader in infrastructure virtualization, today announced that it has been nominated for SYS-CON's "Virtualization Readers' Choice Awards."

Scalent Virtual Operating Environment (V/OE) has been nominated in five categories: Best Virtual Lab Automation, Best Network Virtualization, Best Virtual Platforms Capacity Planning, Best Application Virtualization, and Best Virtualization Platforms High Availability.

Scalent's software enables data centers to react in real-time to changing business needs by dynamically changing what servers are running and how those servers are connected to network and storage. The result is an adaptive infrastructure, where data centers can transition between different configurations -- or from bare metal to live, connected servers -- in five minutes or less, without physical intervention.

The infrastructure virtualization software complements widely deployed server virtualization (hypervisor) solutions by delivering full infrastructure virtualization, providing:

--  Simple deployment, automation, and management of both virtual and
    physical servers, network connectivity and storage access;
    
--  Cost-effective high availability and server failover solutions through
    Scalent's N+1 technology leveraging existing IT assets;
    
--  Fully automated disaster recovery across data centers through
    Scalent's disaster recovery technology;
    
--  Creation of server pools that enable server rightsizing and
    scalability through dynamic repurposing; and
    
--  Effective chargeback capabilities, logical, secure partitioning, and
    named pools of resources for rapid change of operational lab or production
    environments.
    

Using Scalent software, companies have been able to implement cost-effective solutions while reducing server counts, simplifying manageability, and increasing reliability. Many of the Fortune 1000 companies rely on Scalent to support their success, having adopted the software as an integral part of their business continuity, QA test infrastructure automation, and IT operations.

Virtualization Journal readers will vote June 23 - November 15. Winners will be announced at the upcoming International Virtualization Conference & Expo taking place in New York City, N.Y.
