VMware, Inspur Announce OEM Deal

BEIJING -- VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) and Inspur today announced an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement to further accelerate the adoption of VMware virtualization in China. Starting today, Inspur is selling, distributing and supporting VMwares datacenter virtualization and management suite, VMware Infrastructure, on Inspur server systems. The two companies will collaborate on market development, product sales, professional training and customer acquisition as well as technical services. The relationship enables both companies to develop virtualization solutions that effectively meet China’s market demands, leveraging the performance and scalability of Inspur servers with VMware virtualization to reduce capital and operating expenses, improve business continuity, strengthen security and reduce energy consumption.

“China’s rapid economic growth and increased focus on conserving energy have spurred the need for customers to adopt the best solutions for meeting business demands while enabling a green datacenter,” said Diane Greene, president and chief executive officer of VMware. “VMware virtualization addresses this need with solutions that not only consolidate servers, but also jump ahead to the next stages of virtualization: aggregating IT resources in virtualized pools and automating the management of these resources. VMware virtualization combined with Inspur’s expertise in local customer requirements offers a way to quickly cut operating and capital costs by as much as half, deliver applications faster and more reliably in virtual machines, improve information security, and run a more flexible and eco-friendly IT environment.”
