SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Xsigo Systems, Inc., the technology leader in data center I/O virtualization, today announced the management integration of the Xsigo VP780 I/O Director with VMware Infrastructure 3, the market-leading virtual infrastructure software suite. The solution is available immediately as a plug-in for VMware VirtualCenter 2.5, the central management console for VMware Infrastructure environments, allowing users to manage VMware virtual machines and virtual I/O resources from a single console. The combined solution enables virtual machine I/O performance optimization, accelerates failover and reduces I/O hardware requirements.

Data centers that use the integrated virtual I/O solution can quickly deploy and configure virtual machine I/O resources and eliminate I/O bottlenecks that can degrade virtual machine performance. Additionally, they achieve greater I/O mobility to accelerate failover and disaster recovery management. The solution also reduces server I/O card requirements by up to 70%, allowing users to deploy less expensive 1U high servers rather than larger 4U high devices.

As a managed IT service provider, the flexibility and speed of being able to virtualize our environments entirely, from the servers, storage, and the I/O, will deliver tremendous savings in both time and capital costs,” said Sean Kaye, Managing Director of Infoplex. “With the Xsigo I/O Director, which leverages VMware virtualization software, we can get to market sooner and start generating revenue and creating new business opportunities.”
