Egenera Software Key to Dell

MARLBORO, Mass. -- Egenera Inc., the data center virtualization company, today announced the Dell PAN System as a key component of Dell's virtualization solutions portfolio (see today's Dell news release, "Dell Unveils Virtualization Blockbuster"). Dell and Egenera are partnering to deliver the dynamic data center to customers -- making virtualization and data center automation a reality beyond the blade chassis.

The Dell PAN system is built on proven PowerEdge 1950 and 2950 servers, Dell|EMC storage, and Citrix XenServer™ -- all factory-integrated as a complete, turn-key solution that virtualizes and pools compute, networking and storage resources into scalable, changeable assets that can be applied and managed based on business requirements. The Dell PAN system delivers rapid server provisioning and re-deployment in minutes, and hardware availability and site recovery at up to 70 percent lower cost than competitive offerings. The fully integrated solution is designed to enable customers to simplify operations by creating a single resource pool for both physical and virtual servers, resulting in rapid response to organizational changes and business agility.

"Combining both virtual and physical workloads is critical for realizing operational savings in the data center," said Robert Kamba, senior vice president and CIO of GXS. "Egenera PAN Manager treats both physical and virtual servers as a single resource pool, helping our IT staff with productivity, which translates into business value for GXS and our customers. We're pleased to see Egenera forge alliances with leaders like Dell for customer benefit."
