VirtenSys Ships I/O Virtualization Switch

MANCHESTER, U.K. and BEAVERTON, Ore. -- VirtenSys, Ltd., announced it has delivered pre-production units of its I/O Virtualization (IOV) Switch to leading server and storage customers. VirtenSys IOV systems dramatically reduce data center operational expense and complexity by virtualizing all the I/O resources used to connect servers and storage platforms to the networks. This results in reducing rack and blade server management costs by more than 60 percent, power and cooling costs by up to 30 percent and equipment costs by as much as 50 percent. VirtenSys is the first-to-market with IOV products that use the native PCI Express® bus available in every server. The VirtenSys solutions enable the best price/performance and non-disruptive deployment of server I/O connectivity in the data center.

I/O Virtualization Switches drive the evolution of server and storage platforms into more efficient IT infrastructures where all the resources are virtualized, dynamically allocated on demand, independently scaled and optimally utilized. Data center configuration and management becomes a remote, automated process that eliminates physical re-configuration or human intervention. I/O Virtualization also enables the rapid adoption of new usage models and IT services such as green IT, cloud computing and software-as-a-service.

“This is a major milestone for VirtenSys,” said Ahmet Houssein, President and CEO of VirtenSys. “We are very happy to have delivered these solutions to our customers, and we appreciate the support we received from our partners. Our cost-effective IOV products can de deployed in any IT infrastructure and across all vertical market segments. The benefits of I/O virtualization can be realized in all data centers, from very small implementations to large scale deployments.”
