Elastra Expands Virtualization Platform Offering with VMware vSphere 4


Elastra Corporation, the leading provider of application infrastructure automation software, today announced expanded virtualization platform support for VMware vSphere 4 in Elastra Cloud Server 2.0 (ECS) Enterprise Edition.

In this release, ECS lets customers compose, orchestrate and deploy application infrastructure to virtualization environments managed with vSphere 4. ECS already supports private clouds based on VCenter from VMware or XEN from Citrix as well as the public cloud available from Amazon. Systems created for one virtualization environment are portable to another.

“Elastra has built a service oriented cloud management abstraction layer on top of the virtualization platforms such as vSphere 4 in such a way that while deployments across them are portable it still allows for exposure of value added capabilities specific to a virtualization platform. We are taking advantage of advanced vSphere 4 capabilities around network virtualization, storage virtualization and security such as vNetwork Distributed Switch, Storage vMotion, Virtual Disk Thin Provisioning and vShield Zones,” said Junaid Saiyed, Director of Engineering at Elastra.

“Since the general availability of vSphere 4 in May we have seen increasing customer interest to support this exciting new datacenter management solution. With our open and extensible platform it is easy for us to meet customer needs for new virtualization platforms,” said Peter Chiu, Director of Product Management at Elastra.

Elastra offers a free edition of ECS running on Amazon Web Services and an Enterprise Edition for private data centers.
