Optimized for space-constrained enterprise computing using the energy-efficient Verari Systems BladeRack® 2 XL (BR2-XL) platform, the VB2242 and the recently announced VB1257 server blades provide significantly lower total cost of ownership than any competing product on a per VMware image basis.

Verari Systems is making its customers lives easier by enabling them to get the most out of the latest multicore processing power and VMware virtualization software while lessening management overhead at essentially no cost to the user experience, said Bernie Mills, senior director, Alliances Programs at VMware. As a VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program member, Verari Systems is providing flexible ways for companies to meet the growing and ever-changing needs of enterprise computing.

The Verari Systems VB2242 blade is powered by the latest low power Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® Processors, is available with up to 192GB of RAM and can house up to 528 cores per rack. This industry-leading density, efficiency and scalability translates into an increased number of virtual machines per blade, providing customers with the industrys best virtualization solution in both 2VU and 1VU form factors.

Just about every data center is looking to stretch its budget without compromising its effectiveness, and one good step along that path is to combine blade computing with virtualization software, said Mark Peters, analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. Data center managers can combine VMware together with hardware platforms such as Verari Systems BladeRack 2 server and storage systems, and are then able to run multiple applications on a single server while still realizing performance and energy efficiency advantages.

Our blade server innovations are a perfect solution for todays Web 2.0 applications, where virtualization of resources is a key factor in ROI, said Dan Gatti, senior vice president of worldwide market operations, Verari Systems. The strong demand we see for our BladeRack 2 platforms is partly driven by offering an attractive combination of technologies that combine with VMware ESX 3.5, enabling customers to fully realize the benefits of virtualization and energy efficiency.
