Eco4Cloud's Host Thin Provisioning delivers agility and cost savings to Centered Networks
Eco4Cloud –global leader in intelligent workload management solutions for virtualized data centers and the Cloud– today announces that Centered Networks has adopted its Host Thin Provisioning and award‑winning solutions for datacenter optimization. Based in San Francisco, CA, Centered Networks is a next generation managed services company, recognized leader in cloud computing and virtualization with over 10 years experience in delivering cloud-based services and solutions.

Eco4Cloud’s technology is based on an innovative bio-inspired probabilistic algorithm which autonomically consolidates the maximum number of virtual machines on the minimum number of physical servers in a data center, enabling and automating the switch‑off/hibernation of those freed-up and making them dynamically available as additional capacity for additional workloads. The resulting incremental operational, CapEx and OpEx optimizations delivered to Centered Networks’ state‑of‑the‑art virtualized datacenter furthermore demonstrate the value that Eco4Cloud delivers to its Customers with its unique technology and innovative solutions.

Centered Networks’ needs were best addressed thanks to Eco4Cloud’s partnership with US‑based Skycanvas, a division of Entisys Solutions, Inc. In fact Skycanvas operates at a unique crossroads of architecture and IT business model development, and synthesizes the best of today’s technical architecture and business model design with innovative change leadership practices.

"We are embracing Eco4Cloud’s Host Thin Provisioning as it delivers significant improvements to the optimization of Centered Networks’ highly virtualized multi­‑tenant cloud environment, ultimately achieving significant agility and cost savings. Eco4Cloud, in fact, allows us to dynamically provision only the number of physical servers that our customers’ workloads actually require. This feature is unique to Eco4Cloud in the virtualization world, as it actively manages the number of powered‑­on cores in the server estate, resulting in significant accuracy in capacity management and 40% reductions in electricity and cooling demand. The sum total of benefits include reduced data center space, reduced numbers of physical servers, reduced power and cooling demands, all of which lead to better ROI/profitability and a more competitive offer to our clients." said Chris Grecsek, CTO at Centered Networks.

"I’m glad of the proven value Eco4Cloud is delivering to Centred Network’s leading edge virtualized datacenter, reconfirming the relevance of our award‑winning solutions and accelerating Eco4Cloud’s international expansion. Combined with the distinct value add from our US Partner Skycanvas, this makes us confident about Eco4Cloud’s opportunity and ability to develop in the US market." said Roberto Mircoli, CEO of Eco4Cloud.

"Understanding the business outcome of Centered Networks Advanced DAAS (Desktop as a Service) Platform was an important factor when deciding the right technology to use to bring down the COGS (Cost of Goods and Services) of the Desktop delivery and increase reliability that they were able to extend to their customers and forecast increased user without additional capitalization using Host Thin Provisioning technology from Eco4Cloud." said Jaymes Davis, VP of Innovation at Skycanvas a Business Architecture Division of Entisys.
