Virtualization Technology News and Information
Ardence Software-Streaming Capabilities Highlighted

Quoting the press release:

Ardence Inc., the leader in developing software platforms for the on-demand world, today announced that industry analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has praised Ardence's Software-Streaming Platform in a non-commissioned report that reviews current industry perspectives on virtualization. The report, titled "Virtualization: Exposing the Intangible Enterprise," cites Ardence's approach as one that is creating a new paradigm for dynamic, cost-effective software deployment.

Virtualization - the technique of managing systems and resources functionally, regardless of their physical layout or location - represents a powerful breakthrough in IT efficiency, responsiveness and agility. In the report, Andi Mann, senior analyst at EMA, states, "The Ardence Software-Streaming Platform delivers the right host operating system, virtual machines and applications to the right computer, to do the right job at the right time. The streaming approach is creating a new paradigm for dynamic, cost-effective software deployment. Using Ardence's software-streaming technology, IT can instantly deliver a completely provisioned x86-based computer - desktop, server, or device - with a Microsoft Windows OS or Linux OS from bare metal to production in seconds."

The report goes on to state that "unlike most other vendors in the virtualization arena, Ardence provides a full provisioning capability from bare metal to applications and data. This differs from pure-play server, operating system, and application virtualization by providing a complete package that can be booted from the network to completely provision an operating environment."

The Ardence Software-Streaming Platform delivers the host environment and any virtual software - operating system or application - on-demand from network storage and thus turns the computer into an appliance. This eliminates the need to pre-load and test host OS software, virtualization software or application software. The PC has absolutely no software, no OS or application loaded. It plugs on the network and when it is powered up, it gets the right software to do the right job at the right time.

"Virtualization is becoming increasingly important in the enterprise because it provides organizations with the ability to deliver the right software to the right place as it is needed - increasing business agility and IT productivity," said Richard J. Davis, Chairman, President and CEO of Ardence, Inc. "Industry experts and customers are coming to the same conclusion - the Ardence Software-Streaming Platform provides breakthrough virtualization capabilities and value."
