VDI: BELL MICRO & PARALLELS ANNOUNCE UK AGREEMENT

The new relationship will not only give Bell Micro an immediate and strong position in the virtualisation sector, but it will also enable the company to further improve its competitive offering in the data centre space. By partnering with Parallels in this way, Bell Micro can ensure that it offers its channel partners the latest product to take to customers wanting the option of virtualising business critical applications, as well as deploying Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) at market leading consolidation rates.

Russell Blackburn, UK Country Manager at Parallels said, “We have chosen Bell Micro as a key partner as a result of the company’s reputation in the market and its focus on further developing its data centre portfolio. We believe this relationship will be win-win for all involved: customers will be offered a lower cost virtualisation solution, while resellers will benefit from higher margins in the virtualisation space.”

Parallels Virtuozzo Container differs from hardware virtualisation solutions in that it dynamically partitions a single Windows or Linux operating system instance into virtual environments or "containers". With this approach, multiple containers can share real memory, so Parallels Virtuozzo Containers enables three to ten times greater density for typical workloads, as compared with other virtualisation technologies. As there is no overhead from virtual hardware and all containers are in contact with real, physical hardware, performance in virtual containers is at, or near, native speeds. Operating and server sprawl are also dramatically reduced, providing exceptional manageability.
