Egenera PAN Manager Delivers Added Value for Virtualization and Cloud

Egenera, a pioneer in converged fabrics and infrastructure automation, has released the latest version of its flagship software product, PAN Manager. This new release provides expanded platform coverage and deeper integration with VMware. These new capabilities increase the agility and flexibility customers need as they migrate to private cloud environments.

The new release of PAN Manager introduces essential new features to further enhance customer experience and benefits when using PAN Manager in conjunction with their virtualization solution. New features include:

  • Adaptive Capacity – Integration with VMware that enables PAN Manager to cost effectively heal cluster failures and to automatically transfer processing capacity to the cluster when needed.
  • Support for Flex10 – By extending support to Flex10 switches, customers can now leverage the power of PAN Manager for their existing configuration.
  • PAN OpsCenter Virtual Machine – Supporting PAN OpsCenter in a VM provides customers with greater deployment flexibility, enabling them to consolidate management infrastructure.

By converging infrastructure into a unified compute fabric, PAN Manager simplifies IT management processes and provides provisioning, high availability and disaster recovery services for both bare metal and virtual servers providing complete IT lifecycle automation – from a single user interface. This includes the ability to automatically discover fabric elements, create a comprehensive inventory of IT resources, manage network and storage connections, IO and uplinks, and isolate resources through multi-tenant zoning to ensure secure access for different departments or individual customers.

“At a time when our customers are embracing increasing levels of virtualization, Egenera offers unprecedented value in a virtual environment with our newest release of PAN Manager,” said Scott Geng, senior vice president of engineering. “As requirements for resiliency and uptime in the cloud increase, so does our unwavering ability to ensure processing capacity is delivered to applications that need it, when they need it – assuring our customers’ confidence in the cloud.”
