Virtual Iron shows strong momentum in first half

As of June 30th, there were more than 750 organizations using Virtual Iron's enterprise-class solutions. This includes more than 250 using Virtual Iron Enterprise Edition in multi-server environments (comparable to VMware's high-end offering) for server consolidation, rapid provisioning, business continuity, disaster recovery and capacity management; and more than 500 using Virtual Iron's Single Server Edition (comparable to XenSource's high-end offering) for server consolidation and rapid provisioning. Virtual Iron Enterprise Edition is one of only two products on the market today offering advanced features such as Live Migration and policy-based management capabilities such as Live Capacity, Live Maintenance and Live Recovery.

"Even if we had the money for VMware, I would still go with Virtual Iron," said Stephen Bakerman, IT Director at Owen-Bird, a law firm based in Vancouver, British Columbia. "Their support is phenomenal and their feature set is very competitive with VMware. It's going to go back and forth as far as which vendor has better features. For any organization looking for a virtualization solution that's simple to use and easy to get around with, Virtual Iron is the way to go."

That is one dedicated customer! Check out the rest.
