PAN Manager Software Now Supports PRIMERGY BX900 Blade Server
Egenera’s converged infrastructure is now solutions compatible with multiple vendors’ servers and virtual machine technologies.
In a press release submitted to Channel Pro-SMB, Egenera says it is seeking to “deliver converged infrastructure solutions compatible with multiple vendors’ servers and virtual machine technologies.” Converged Infrastructure (aka unified computing), of course, refers to simplifying data center infrastructure management by pooling server, I/O, networking and storage resources, and then reallocating them automatically.†
PAN Manager Software is a form of converged infrastructure that combines unified computing with integrated availability and disaster recovery services for both physical and virtual servers. The ability of PAN Manager to run the Fujitsu PRIMERGY BX900 blade server, the Dell†PowerEdge M1000e Modular Blade Enclosure, and Egenera’s own BladeFrame.
“Egenera’s PAN Manager solution is on standard Ethernet, which is already pervasive,” explains Egenera president and CEO Pete Manca. “As a result, Egenera is speeding adoption, enabling customers to build mission-critical computing blocks using whatever virtualization, storage, and hardware they want, with far fewer point-software components.”
