Verari, Xsigo Offer Integrated Solution

SAN DIEGO and SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Verari Systems, a developer of platform-independent blade-based computing and storage solutions and Xsigo Systems, Inc., the technology leader in data center I/O virtualization, today announced the industry’s first high-density blade solution that offers fully virtualized network and storage connectivity. Available immediately and sold through Verari Systems, the new solution integrates Verari’s BladeRack® 2 X-Series computing platform with Xsigo’s VP780 I/O Director to deliver up to ten times the I/O connections per blade as compared to other solutions available in the market today. By offering the industry’s highest compute and I/O density, Verari and Xsigo are providing IT managers with the capacity to deploy twice as many virtual machines per blade and double data center efficiency.

“Blade systems are an ideal complement for server virtualization,” said Mark Bowker, analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “When you add dynamic virtual I/O to this mix, it takes the value of the entire back-end to a whole new level, compounding all the benefits each derives independently. This kind of packaged functionality is exactly what is required to make the ‘virtual data center’ a reality. When you boil it down, these are root capabilities to make everything from Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to ‘utility’ computing to ‘greening up’ the data center legitimate and not just marketing hype."
