San Jose, CA and Arezzo, Italy (PRWEB) January 25, 2008
Xsigo Systems Inc., the technology leader in I/O virtualization, and Eutelia with its commercial brand Eunics for information and communication technology solutions and services, today announced a reseller agreement to offer virtualization solutions in the Italian enterprise IT market. The two companies will create joint solutions and services offerings that help customers virtualize their server infrastructures in order to simplify management and increase server utilization in large data centers.
Eutelia is one of the leading Italian providers of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) solutions and services. Eutelia will be integrating Xsigo with VMware and other virtualization technologies to create solutions that reduce costs and increase agility for a broad range of customers across government and industry.
"Xsigo's virtual I/O represents an important element of our offerings for data center virtualization and consolidation. The result is a 100x more responsive infrastructure where changes become far simpler to implement. With Xsigo, we believe that large data centers can lower their server-related operational expenses by up to 80%, cut capital costs by 50%, and use 70% less cabling," said Daniele Salpietro, general manager of Eutelia's business units for Virtual Infrastructure and Datacenter Managed Services. "Eutelia's broad range of solutions bridges the gap between IT and telco, and we are pleased to partner with Xsigo to further expand our solution capabilities."
The Xsigo I/O Director overcomes the limitations of traditional server I/O by virtualizing the connections to networks and storage, allowing IT managers to provision resources on-the-fly and without physically entering the data center.
"Eutelia and Xsigo have joined forces to offer customers complete solutions that combine Xsigo I/O virtualization and other solutions to reduce the cost, complexity, and time associated with managing servers and applications," said Charlie Will, Xsigo's VP of international sales. "Within this combined solution, Xsigo provides the I/O virtualization technologies that help customers simplify and accelerate server I/O management."
