The confluence of technological maturity with a dampened economy forms a fertile ground for the cost-slashing innovation that AppZero brings to server-side application provisioning.
Andover, MA (PRWEB) December 1, 2009
Server application virtualization pioneer AppZero announces a case study-based webinar entitled, "Case Study: F100 Data Center Moves to/from Cloud with VAA," to be held Thursday, December 3rd, at 11 am EST. The presenter will be Greg O’Connor, AppZero CEO. No charge registration is available at http://www.appzero.com.
In this session, O'Connor will detail the real-world experience of an AppZero Fortune 100 customer using a single gold server-application image for cross-domain provisioning of the data center, to multiple clouds and back. The ability to move server-based applications across VMs -VMware, Xen, and Hyper-V - without any modifications freed this Fortune 100 company from infrastructure lock-in. O’Connor examines the multiplier effect of that freedom across the data center to *clouds, where * = any combination of Disaster Cloud, Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud on any combination of cloud vendors' offerings.
Commenting on this webinar, O'Connor reflected, "The days of hype are over. There is a real hunger out there for practical how-to guidance. The confluence of technological maturity with a dampened economy forms a fertile ground for the cost-slashing innovation that AppZero brings to server-side application provisioning. Yes, that capability is powerful as enterprises look to move across clouds without any modification, but there is a corollary requirement within the data center. Functionally, AppZero blurs the lines between those spheres of operation. This webinar is intended to be a solid venue for showcasing our technology to an audience that is knowledgeable and actively engaged in both cloud and earth-based virtualization."

AppZero software virtualizes Windows and UNIX server applications for nearly instant provisioning as services across a network, on any server (physical or virtual), in the datacenter or in the cloud. First to market with a toolset for virtualizing server-side applications, AppZero has pioneered the Virtual Application Appliance (VAA), in which an application is encapsulated with all of its dependencies - but without any operating system (OS) component. The result is server applications that are 100% portable with zero footprint and performance near native levels. For enterprises and ISVs intrigued by the capital-free potential of pay-as-you-go-computing, AppZero provides a smooth on-ramp to the cloud without any cloud lock-in. Requiring no modification to existing applications, AppZero makes it technically easy and economically sensible to explore and exploit cloud computing. Become an AppZero Fan on Facebook.
