Egenera, Inc. today announced an upcoming technology preview of its capacity-on-demand solution developed jointly with VMware, Inc. The company will showcase the solution at next month's VMworld 2008, September 15-18 in Las Vegas at its Corporate Booth #328.
Set to be unveiled for the first time on the show floor at VMworld, the new joint capacity-on-demand solution will provide VMware® VirtualCenter users access to PAN Manager® by Egenera® processing resources directly through VMware VirtualCenter. With capacity-on-demand, customers benefit from the automatic deployment of ESX hosts onto "bare metal" in response to overutilization that can adversely affect virtual machine performance.
"We are pleased to be working shoulder-to-shoulder with VMware again to help our customers be more productive and their data centers more dynamic and reliable," said Christine Crandell, Egenera's Chief Marketing Officer. "The preview of the new capacity-on-demand solution is being developed in direct response to customer requirements and will ensure that our joint customers can focus on maintaining optimal resource utilization rather than spending time performing installation, setup and wiring work."
With Egenera's capacity-on-demand solution, new ESX hosts are automatically registered to VirtualCenter as part of the resource pool, while underutilized ESX hosts can be automatically powered off to reduce energy consumption. In addition, VMware features such as Distributed Resource Scheduling (DRS) and High Availability (HA) will rebalance virtual machine workloads within the changed environment.
