BILLERICA, Mass. and HERZELIYA, Israel -- Voltaire Ltd(NASDAQ: VOLT), a leading provider of grid backbone solutions for the data center, today announced that the company is working with Cluster Resources, Inc. to deliver an integrated management, scheduling and provisioning solution for unified fabrics consisting of compute, storage and network resources

By combining Voltaire's GridVision Enterprise management software with Cluster Resources' Moab family of scheduling products, the companies now offer the first integrated solution to dynamically form multiple "application environments" from shared pools of physical or virtual compute, software, network and storage resources. These application environments can be scheduled and scaled dynamically to meet specific application and organization service level objectives. This capability is critical for computation centers or on-demand facilities that serve multiple users, applications or organizations, or for customers who plan to consolidate multiple server farms and clusters to gain more capacity with fewer resources.

"By integrating Voltaire's GridVision Enterprise software with Cluster Resources' Moab scheduler and orchestrator, we have created a powerful provisioning and management solution for unified server and storage fabrics," said Yaron Haviv, Chief Technology Officer, Voltaire. "As part of this solution, Moab determines when application resources are needed and in what capacity, based on requests, policy and workload, and instructs GridVision Enterprise -- which acts as the resource manager -- to create, virtualize, re-allocate or alter the infrastructure."
