Atlanta, GA, United States, 2006/04/27 - Vendors selected for the “Cool Vendor report” are innovative, impactful and intriguing - Invirtus.com / MichaelMackenzie.com. NASDAQ: QSFT
Invirtus, the leading provider of tools that today's businesses need to help minimize the size and problems associated with distributing virtual machine technology, has been included in the “Cool Vendors in Emerging Technologies, 2006” report by Martin Reynolds, et al., Gartner, Inc. (30 March 2006). The 10 cool vendors highlighted in the report provide products “that tie to massively scalable computing resources, and the hardware and software technologies that can cost-effectively deliver those resources.”
Invirtus was analyzed in the report that “identifies scalability as the next great IT challenge.” According to the Gartner Report, “Data centers are exceeding their power and cooling capabilities; servers — virtual and real — are proliferating at a rate only exceeded by the available hardware processing units to run them; and reduced computing costs per element guarantee that exponentially increasing amounts of data will be collected, stored and analyzed.”
"We feel the Gartner report has mirrored what our customers have told us – that the ability to reduce VM size by up to 80% creates significant business value through increased capacity," said Tom Edwards, Invirtus CEO. “As a result of this new found capacity, customers are adding VM Optimizer as a must-have tool to their solution suite.”
VM Optimizer™ automatically reduces any Microsoft® Windows® -based virtual machine to their smallest possible size, whether you are running on VMware® Workstation™, VMware GSX Server™, VMware ESX Server™, Microsoft Virtual PC™ or Microsoft Virtual Server™.
“Invirtus is vastly learning more about customer needs which is driving development of new, innovative solutions which will fuel rapid growth,” continued Edwards. “We are very excited about our work in this area and believe it will further demonstrate our technological and industry leadership toward making virtualization technology more accessible to more people."
