Liquid Computing Positioned as a Visionary in 2009 Magic Quadrant for Blade Servers

Liquid Computing, the leader in unified computing infrastructure for today’s dynamic data center, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant of the 2009 Magic Quadrant for Blade Servers by Vice Presidents and Distinguished Analysts Andrew Butler and George Weiss, published October 6, 2009.

“In my opinion, Liquid Computing’s positioning as a visionary in Gartner’s Blade Server Magic Quadrant is a testament to our innovative approach to data center automation and ability to significantly reduce operating costs for customers,” said Vikram Desai, CEO of Liquid Computing. “We are committed to driving the adoption of open architecture fabric computing forward in 2010 and beyond.”

According to Gartner, this new blade server Magic Quadrant focuses on a market that is outgrowing that of all other server form factors. Most vendors are now investing in the market, and many Gartner clients are standardizing on this technology for their data center deployments. The blade server market is rapidly evolving with a gradual transition toward data center fabrics that will drive the market toward more porous barriers between compute, storage and networking technology.
