Convirture Collaborates with Eucalyptus Systems for Private Clouds

ConVirt 2.0 Enterprise brings powerful management capabilities to Eucalyptus-based cloud environments

Convirture, maker of Linux and open source-based virtualization management software, has partnered with Eucalyptus Systems, creators of the leading independent private cloud platform, to deliver enterprise-grade private cloud management capabilities to Eucalyptus users and customers. The agreement calls for the two companies to work together to integrate ConVirt 2.0 Enterprise with Eucalyptus open source software and Eucalyptus Enterprise Edition (EE) , as well as cooperate on sales, marketing and support activities.

As open source-based private clouds become more widely deployed in enterprise data centers, the need increases for a sophisticated management toolset. ConVirt 2.0 Enterprise provides Eucalyptus private cloud users with management capabilities that were previously only available on closed-source products.

ConVirt software manages virtual and private-cloud environments based on open platforms such as Linux, Xen and KVM. ConVirt 2.0 Enterprise provides advanced automation and scalability features for use in large and/or mission-critical environments, including high availability, backup and recovery, storage and network automation, and enterprise-grade security. It also includes tools and features for managing hosted and private clouds.

"Convirture's software provides sophisticated management capabilities that will help further drive adoption of open source-based private clouds in the enterprise," said Matt Reid, vice president of sales and marketing at Eucalyptus Systems. "With the open source Convirture software and Eucalyptus, a wide range of users will be able to deploy and manage powerful on-premises clouds, and we are pleased to include Convirture in the growing Eucalyptus partner ecosystem."

Eucalyptus is infrastructure software that enables organizations to deploy scalable private and hybrid cloud computing environments within a secure IT infrastructure. With Eucalyptus, users can make more efficient use of their computing resources, increase productivity, and deploy new applications faster, while protecting sensitive data and reducing capital expenditures. Eucalyptus supports the same application programming interfaces (APIs) as public clouds, and today Eucalyptus is fully compatible with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud infrastructure.

"This partnership is great for existing Eucalyptus users and customers, as well as those looking to expand their private cloud presence," said Craig Bauman, vice president, sales and business development for Convirture. "By adding a management layer that rivals anything available on the market, private cloud operators can realize the goal of a flexible, easily provisioned cloud-based data center."
