the technology leader in email security, routers and load
balancers, today announced the full support of vApp to integrate
Halon Security Suite into VMware, the global leader in
virtualization and cloud infrastructure. vApp provides an
automated and customizable solution for Web hosting providers who
need immediate deployment of virtual machines through VMware's
vApp technology. Halon's reputation has been built on the ability
to simplify the deployment of its technology and vApp is the next
solution in line with that philosophy.
"The modern data center
must be automated to run at full capacity and Halon is committed
to providing the best and most efficient hosting and service
provider solutions available," said Jonas Falck, Halon's COO and
senior technical director. "Security infrastructure is following the
lead of data centers and cloud providers by moving away from legacy
hardware and towards virtualization. Halon Security Suite is
leading the charge with vApp integration to provide security
solutions with decreased cost, improved quality, and shortened
time to market."
Following the lead of datacenters and cloud
providers, the network and security infrastructure of hosting and
service providers is becoming less reliant on legacy hardware
installations and is gravitating towards full software solutions.
Now that VMware's vApp is integrated into the Halon Security
Suite, Halon's hosting and service provider customers will be able
to automatically and cost-effectively deploy virtual machines.
This enables providers to immediately get new applications up and
running in little time while also allocating fewer IT resources.
VMware's vApp's self-configuration makes it easy to deploy virtual
machines. Pre-packaged virtual machines-such as a windows server
and firewall bundled together-don't require individual IP
addresses for every virtual machine. This means applications get
running quickly and are easier to operate.
