MANCHESTER, U.K. and BEAVERTON, Ore. -- VirtenSysTM, Ltd. has achieved an industry breakthrough by developing the first PCI Express based I/O technology that virtualizes and shares off-the-shelf I/O adapters among multiple physical servers without the need for adapter, device driver, or server modifications. This unique, proprietary technology is a critical capability that will accelerate adoption of the VirtenSys PCI Express I/O virtualization products and will establish the company as the industry leader. The cost effective VirtenSys products dramatically improve I/O utilization to greater than 80 percent; enhance throughput, and reduce I/O cost and power consumption by as much as 50 percent. The products also simplify data center management by dynamically allocating, sharing, and migrating I/O resources among servers without physical re-configuration, resulting in reduced Operational Expenses (OpEx).

As a part of the VirtenSys go-to-market strategy, the company is demonstrating this technology to leading server and storage Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and System Integrators (SIs). Later this year, VirtenSys will launch products that virtualize and share off-the-shelf Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and SAS/SATA PCI Express based I/O adapters. The products will be available in both rack-mount and blade server form factors

We are pleased by the responses of our OEM customers to the technology,” said Ahmet Houssein, president and CEO of VirtenSys. “They were unanimous in their positive comments, as they have been looking for cost-effective solutions that deliver all the benefits of I/O virtualization without performance degradation or disruption to existing server and storage systems.”
