Peer Software, Inc., a global provider of enterprise-grade file and database management solutions for hundreds of Fortune 500 companies and government agencies, today announces partnership with Parallels, a leader in virtualization and automation software. The companies are collaborating to enable customers to realize cost-savings through simplified IT infrastructures, using virtualization platforms and disaster recovery solutions with certified data protection, availability and continuous backup provided by Peer Software. Peer Software's solutions have been certified to provide Parallels Virtuozzo Containers with virtual server backup of user and application data through the PeerSync product line, and MS SQL backup and MS Exchange backup through the Peer DRS product line.

Parallels Virtuozzo Containers is the world's leading OS virtualization solution. This virtual infrastructure creates isolated containers on a single physical server and OS instance. Compared to other virtualization technologies, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers offers the highest levels of density, performance and manageability. Since Peer Software products are not are not tied to a specific hard disk, as long as a drive is visible by the Virtuozzo Container as a local drive, Peer Software products will be able to read and monitor its content.

"Server virtualization technologies have provided a powerful solution for companies requiring increased computing capabilities to run and grow their business. However, backup technologies have generally not kept pace with the challenges presented in virtualized environments," said Paul Marsala, CEO of Peer Software. "Peer Software and Parallels are committed to ensure that Parallels Virtuozzo Containers customers have a solid foundation for their data availability and disaster recovery requirements."

"Parallels is excited that Peer Software products are certified with Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, allowing Peer to offer customers trusted and compatible replication and disaster recovery solutions," said Bryan Goode, Director of Business Development, Parallels. "Peer's participation in the Parallels Certification Program demonstrates continued interest by ISV and channel partners in Parallels Virtuozzo Containers."
