Carilion Health Chooses Scalent Software for Business Continuity, Compliance, and Infrastructure Automation Needs
Scalent Systems announced today that Carilion Health, a leading provider of medical research, care, and treatment, has adopted Scalent Systems' server repurposing software to support Carilion's business continuity, compliance, and infrastructure automation needs. Scalent is the first company to deliver comprehensive server repurposing software for the data center, addressing not only individual servers, but also the entire related network connectivity and storage access environment. Scalent V/OE 2.5 enables data center managers to radically increase flexibility and response time while combating spiraling IT costs, by creating a truly adaptive infrastructure.

"Carilion is committed to providing the best, most responsive environment for our physicians, patients, and staff," said Mike Smith, director of technical services, Carilion. "Scalent's server repurposing software enables us to transform our IT in real-time -- so we can meet the shifting needs of our clients, while simultaneously cutting costs of service, and implementing standards even more stringent than those required for regulatory compliance."

With Scalent server repurposing software, Carilion will be able to reconfigure or restore entire data center topologies in five minutes or less. Using Scalent software, Carilion will be able to rapidly change not only what servers are running, but how those servers are connected to each other, networks, and storage, in real-time, without physical intervention.

"Adding Scalent software removes the inefficiency, inflexibility, and inconsistency inherent in the infrastructure of a traditional, static data center," said Andrew Duncan, senior vice president, business development, Scalent. "After evaluating various products, Carilion recognized Scalent's unique open support for their existing virtual and real systems, change-free incremental installation, and technical ability to transition their data centers in minutes, easily. We're honored to have an industry leader like Carilion as a customer."

Scalent software allows companies to create an adaptive infrastructure for their data centers. Customers can change their data center in real-time to meet varying IT needs, without physical intervention. Data center moves, adds, and changes gain efficiency, flexibility, and consistency.
