BEAR Data Systems to Showcase the Latest in Data Center Virtualization at VMworld
BEAR Data Systems, Inc., ( a leading California IT solutions and services provider, announced today that it will be scheduling demonstrations of complete, end-to-end data center virtualization solutions during VMworld 2009, Booth #2514, August 31 - September 3 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Booth visitors who schedule a demonstration will see first-hand how server/network management and private cloud security can be cost-effectively combined in a single, integrated solution. Virtualization experts and BEAR Data integrators will be on hand to answer questions about the solutions and how data center virtualization can provide a growth path to the future.

Recently named to Inc. Magazine’s prestigious 2009 list of the fastest growing privately owned companies in the U.S., BEAR Data is well-known for designing data centers that slash IT costs while delivering more processing power. One way to do this is to use virtualization to reduce the amount of hardware required; which, in turn, reduces both power and cooling needs.

Virtualization is a compelling solution for the growing number of organizations that need to maximize the efficiency of their data centers and lower their costs. Gartner predicts the market for cloud products and services will jump from $46.4 billion last year to $150.1 billion in 2013.

Before BEAR Data delivered a solution that would offer the sweeping benefits that data center virtualization provides, it addressed the reasons some businesses have been hesitant about adopting the technology — the complexity of managing a mixture of local and virtual servers and security issues.

By combining its expertise in IT infrastructure with the latest virtualization software, BEAR Data delivers a solution that future-proofs an organization’s data center. It also takes the complexity out of data center virtualization with secure, private clouds. Now, virtual servers can use the same network configuration, security policy, diagnostic tools, and operational models as their physical server counterparts attached to dedicated physical network ports.

“A key benefit of this approach is network administrators will be able to use the same familiar management tool for both physical and virtual environments,” explained Don James, CEO of BEAR Data Systems, Inc. “It not only takes some of the complexity out of setting up and managing virtual networks, it helps organizations reduce their data center’s total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase IT responsiveness.”

A Cisco Systems Gold-certified Partner, BEAR Data has achieved the highest level of certification a channel partner can earn with specializations in the Advanced Data Center, Advanced Routing and Switching, Advanced Security, Advanced Unified Communications, and Advanced Wireless LAN categories. BEAR Data was also recently awarded the Cisco Customer Satisfaction Excellence Award, an award it has earned for five consecutive years. As a certified VMware Premier Partner, the highest level, BEAR Data has also demonstrated its expertise in the design and delivery of VMware-based solutions.
