Manno, 11 January 2011 - Gateway is proud to announce a new key partnership with VMware, the industry leader for virtualization solutions. This combination will provide the leading virtualization technology solutions from VMware to Gateway server and storage customers.
Today SMB, mid-sized and enterprise businesses need to consider how IT can help the business grow and compete more efficiently over time. Virtualization is becoming a core business strategy from desktop to data center. Virtualization reduces the cost and complexity of technology, frees up time to make businesses more responsive, improves energy efficiency and reduce downtime risks.
Gateway just enhanced its product portfolio with the full offer of VMware server and client virtualization solutions including: VMware vSphereTM virtualization platform coupled with VMware vCloud Director, VMware vCenter Server and VMware View desktop virtualization families.
Testing and certification has already been completed for all the mainstream servers: tower, rack, blade and multi-node.
Virtualization increases effective utilization of the overall resources of a system. Applications and infrastructure services currently running on dedicated servers can be consolidated on fewer, highly scalable, highly reliable enterprise-class servers, such as the Gateway server family. Multiple configurations based on different operating systems can co-exist on one dedicated hardware infrastructure. Server utilization is improved, which boosts Return On Investment (ROI).
Gateway servers with VMware vSphereTM virtualization platform, provide comprehensive hardware and software for your virtualized environment to accommodate the complete spectrum of SMB, mid-sized and enterprise businesses. Customers will be able to:
- Reduce IT costs and improve flexibility with server consolidation
- Decrease downtime and improve reliability with business continuity and disaster recovery
