Scalent Systems Wins Best Virtualization Product of the Year in Techworld 2008 Awards

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - Scalent Systems, the leader in infrastructure virtualization, today announced that it has been awarded "Best Virtualization Product of the Year" in the European IT industry's renowned Techworld Awards (formerly Network Awards). The Techworld Awards have recognized great products in the industry for over thirteen years. Scalent was chosen for the top honor over products from VMware, Parallels, NEC, and other industry leaders.

Scalent's software is unique in providing real time data center management and automation across physical and virtual environments. The Scalent V/OE software enables data centers to react in real-time to changing business needs by shifting workloads and connectivity: 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.

Scalent's software complements widely-deployed server virtualization (hypervisor) solutions by delivering full infrastructure virtualization, including:

--  Simple deployment, automation, and management of both virtual and
    physical servers, network connectivity and storage access
    
--  Seamless, real-time movement of images at boot between physical
    hardware, virtual hardware, and different hypervisors via Infinite Virtual
    Transition™ -- no conversion needed
    
--  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 management and automation solutions for server failover, disaster recovery, QA test labs, and other operational challenges -- 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.
