Fastscale releases Virtual Manager for VMware!

With the demands of deploying both physical and virtual servers, administration is more complex than ever. FastScale Virtual Manager™ was designed precisely to eliminate this problem. The combination of Virtual Manager and FastScale Composer™ Suite delivers a complete, dynamic and highly adaptive solution for managing large-scale server software infrastructure — both virtual and physical.

Virtual Manager supports the full line of VMware infrastructure products including VMware ESX Server, VMware Server and VMware Workstation and is the only product available that enables IT organizations to automatically build and streamline server software environments on-demand in seconds — without manual effort of any kind. Server software environments are 99% smaller than traditional golden images and can be provisioned to virtual or physical machines on-the-fly to optimize the infrastructure for application performance and load balancing requirements. Virtual Manager delivers complete automation from start to finish.

The small memory footprint of FastScale software environments has a big impact on performance. In fact, benchmarks show that 3 times the number of virtual machines can run on a given physical machine without degrading performance, and 40 FastScale virtual machines can boot in less time than a single traditional environment. FastScale Virtual Manager delivers the lightweight, just-in-time environment needed for the scalable virtual infrastructure of enterprise-class IT organizations.
