CardPoint Deploys Virtuozzo Software

Virtualized infrastructure and IT security specialist Objectronix ( announced on Monday it has proposed and deployed SWsoft's ( Virtuozzo virtualization software to improve server efficiency for retail cash machine provider Cardpoint's ( virtual servers.

Objectronix says Virtuozzo is the only server solution that not only slashes the physical server requirement, but is also able to run mission critical high I/O applications.

In addition to increasing the utilization of servers, Cardpoint says that virtualization enables them to back-up the dispatch environment so tests can be run. Although Virtuozzo was initially bought to run on the Oracle and BlackBerry enterprise servers Cardpoint says it has now rolled it out onto further servers across the data center and is also looking at expanding onto the servers housed at the company's London offices.

"When we evaluated the products we were particularly impressed with Virtuozzo as OS virtualization avoids the poor performance caused by double caching, which is associated with virtualizing the hardware," says Harris Bokhari, infrastructure service manager at Cardpoint. "On top of that, we were staggered by the price difference between Virtuozzo and VMware ESX Server. Virtuozzo just offered so much more value for money, meaning we could buy a brand new server, upgrade the memory on an existing server and buy extra Virtuozzo licences for the same as VMware ESX."
