Rackable systems launches Virtualized Server Line


Rackable Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: RACK), a leading provider of servers and storage products for large-scale data centers, today announced availability of high-performance servers based on VMware’s infrastructure virtualization capabilities. As a result of the relationship, VMware Infrastructure 3 software (VI3) is now available on Rackable Systems rack-mount server lines with full platform certification from VMware. Rackable Systems will also resell and distribute VMware products and provide Level 1 and Level 2 support for the software suite.

Rackable Systems’ innovative x86 server designs—which feature superior cooling technologies and DC Power options—enable data centers to deploy high density, high performance server configurations while significantly decreasing energy consumption and reducing overall total cost of ownership. By harnessing the virtualization capabilities of VMware ESX Server—the foundation of the VMware Infrastructure 3—Rackable Systems customers will now be able to achieve higher server utilization and even better efficiency rates while managing systems in mission-critical environments.

"The VMware relationship enables Rackable Systems to extend our build-to-order model to support rack and data center-level virtualized environments," said Mark J. Barrenechea, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rackable Systems. "Now enterprise data centers can leverage our high performance, ultra-dense virtualized systems to support development, test and production application workloads as well as mission-critical business continuity solutions."
