Virtual Iron Software (www.virtualiron.com), the leading provider of server virtualization and virtual infrastructure management solutions derived from the Xen open source project, today announced the latest version of its enterprise-class software platform. Version 4 establishes new ease-of-use standards for creating, provisioning and managing the complete lifecycle of virtual machines across large numbers of physical servers. The new release provides comparable capabilities to the industry’s most comprehensive offering and is available at just a fraction of the cost. Version 4 is packaged and priced for mainstream market adoption and extends Virtual Iron’s lead over XenSource by delivering the most advanced capabilities available in a highly reliable, cost-effective and easy-to-deploy server virtualization platform.

Version 4 is designed to support all primary virtualization use cases including server consolidation, dev/test automation, high availability, disaster recovery, dynamic capacity management and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). It builds on Virtual Iron’s robust virtualization services, live workload migration and automated policy-based management capabilities currently deployed in hundreds of customer environments worldwide. The release also adds important new production capabilities including: integration of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 kernel and drivers from Novell; new physical-to-virtual (P2V) and virtual-to-virtual (V2V) migration powered by PlateSpin; a new graphical virtualization management interface; the most current version of the Xen® open source 3.1 hypervisor; expanded 32 and 64 bit OS support; and multi-processor (SMP) Windows support. By embedding the Novell SLES 10 kernel and drivers in its platform, Virtual Iron addresses the reliability, support and security requirements of data center managers using virtualization in production environments. Version 4 also leverages the latest multi-core technology and hardware virtualization advancements from Intel.
