With the general availability of the final product editions, all customers now have access to a cloud-based systems management product that can manage their most complicated and largest deployments with ease. ScaleXtreme can be setup online in minutes with no software to deploy on-site and, through its innovative architecture, manage servers – physical, virtual, local or hosted – within minutes.

“ScaleXtreme has been incredibly easy to use and invaluable in helping us manage multiple cloud servers. As Facebook games and mobile app developers, we need to easily set up and manage applications and testing servers from the cloud,” said Vincent Bellet, CEO of TapStic, Inc. “With ScaleXtreme Xpress, we were up and running in minutes, and have found the functionality - and price - to be unbeatable.”

ScaleXtreme Xpress allows customers to manage all of their servers, including monitoring, storing and sharing scripts in the cloud, and automating scripted tasks across servers running in both private and public clouds. The service supports an unlimited number of servers, has no time limit, and requires no credit card to get going.

Also announced today is the company’s premium version, ScaleXtreme Xpert. This subscription-based service provides more comprehensive features suited to enterprises needing to manage servers in production environments across more than one cloud provider, with a multi-user systems management tool. ScaleXtreme Xpert supports connections to popular cloud providers including Amazon EC2, Bluelock, and Rackspace, as well as OpenStack- and vCloud-based cloud providers.

“As more enterprises use multiple vendor solutions for their clouds and management becomes more complex, IT needs a way to manage the cloud as easily as possible,” said Nand Mulchandani, co-founder and CEO of ScaleXtreme. “We feel that everyone deserves to be able to efficiently and cost-effectively manage servers from the cloud. ScaleXtreme Xpress is the core of our product and gives users an insight into the innovative features we provide. We are confident that once organizations see the benefits Xpress provides they will be eager to deploy Xpert to increase their capabilities and benefits.”

The company has raised the bar on ease of use for systems management, providing a unique approach for provisioning and managing the entire lifecycle of machines, through a “single pane of glass.” Customers can access and manage all their servers, whether local or hosted, in public or private clouds, though one cloud-based service.
