Verari Unveils ESX 3.5 Certified Blade

SAN DIEGO -- Verari Systems, a premier developer of energy efficient data center consolidation platforms utilizing independent blade-based computing and storage solutions, and VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program member, today announced that the Verari Systems’ VB1257 VMware ESX 3.5 certified blade delivers twice the number of VMware virtual machines per blade than similar competitive blade offerings while consuming 50% less power. On a per VMware image basis, the VB1257 for the BladeRack® 2 XL (BR2-XL) platform provides significantly better total cost of ownership than any competing blade server products. VMware provides TAP program members with tools to develop products that are complementary to VMware virtualization software and help deliver high-value solutions to our joint customers.

The Verari Systems’ VB1257 blade is certified on VMware ESX 3.5 and powered by the latest low power Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® Processors. When combined with the BR2-XL platform, the solution delivers twice the number of VMware virtual machines with industry-leading energy efficiency, density and scalability while significantly reducing operational expenses.

“The VB1257 blade effectively leverages VMware virtualization to solve the problems known in the data center today such as server sprawl, power and cooling issues, and operating costs, enabling customers to achieve greater density and server utilization,” said Bernie Mills, senior director, alliances programs at VMware. “We are pleased that Verari Systems is helping to deliver added value to customers with innovative technology combined with the significant business benefits of VMware virtualization, including lower capital and operating expenses, business continuity, strengthened security and reduced energy consumption.”
