Embotics' technology provides CIOs, CSOs, IT operations staff and security professionals with technology that increases efficiency while maintaining control. Rapid adoption of server virtualization results in unexpected risks and costs, and enterprises in this position need systems, tools and processes to control the proliferation of virtual machines (VMs), or virtual sprawl. Embotics helps reduce costs and risks within server virtualization deployments and prevents sprawl through effective and "out of the box" virtual machine lifecycle management.
"The need to do more with less has been a stimulant to the virtualization market, and has highlighted the requirement to manage and control virtual environments as they grow," says Jay Litkey, CEO of Embotics. "This recognition highlights our rapid growth and global accomplishments in helping customers reclaim resources and money and prevent virtual sprawl. We are fortunate to root our success in Ottawa, where support of entrepreneurial and technological endeavors is strong, especially from organizations such as OCRI."
Embotics Corporation, the Virtualization Lifecycle Management™ Company, helps enterprises realize the maximum savings of server virtualization without incurring the risks and costs associated with virtual sprawl. Embotics' award-winning V-Commander™ uses policy-based controls to manage virtual machines (VMs) throughout their lifecycles; providing the oversight, automation and controls necessary to accelerate the adoption of server virtualization without creating sprawl and adding unnecessary resources or staff.
