In Wake of vSphere 5.1 Deployment, Infinitely Virtual Expands Support to Windows 2012 and Windows 8
Infinitely Virtual, a leading provider of Cloud Server computing services, today announced support for Windows 2012 and Windows 8, a move that marks the completion of its VMware vSphere® 5.1 upgrade cycle.

The company recently announced its implementation of vSphere 5.1, a comprehensive update of the world's most widely deployed virtualization platform. The foundation of the VMware vCloud Suite, vSphere 5.1 includes more than 100 enhancements and new features aimed at delivering optimum performance across all applications.

Among the vSphere 5.1 enhancements is support for Windows 2012 and Windows 8. vShield Manager 5.1, a virtual appliance that is part of the vSphere upgrade, is integral to that support, providing firewall protection, traffic analysis, and network perimeter services to protect the virtual infrastructure. vShield Manager -- the centralized management component of vShield -- is used to monitor and push configurations to vShield App, vShield Endpoint, and vShield Edge implementations.

"Our deployment of vSphere 5.1 enables us to offer small and midsize businesses Windows 2012 and Windows 8 within a virtualization environment," said Adam Stern, CEO, Infinitely Virtual. "In addition to bringing the significant capabilities of both flavors of Windows to our customers, we're delivering, through vShield, improved scalability, performance, and increased logging and reporting. The takeaway is a qualitatively better user experience - one that is both seamless and cost-effective."
