Ready Informatica Offers High Value-Added Distribution, Training, Partner Support and Recruitment Services
DARMSTADT, Germany, May 24, 2007 - SWsoft ( www.swsoft.com), specialist in server virtualization and automation, and Ready Informatica (www.ready.it), Italy's leading high value-added distributor today announce an agreement for distribution of SWsoft Virtuozzo in the Italian market by Ready Informatica, via an organized channel of System Integrators and Resellers. This agreement represents a significant step for SWsoft, in terms of improving its position in the Italian market, and strengthens Ready Informatica's strategy of offering high-value virtualization technologies.
Virtuozzo dynamically partitions a single Windows or Linux operating system instance into highly-efficient and scalable virtual environments. Virtuozzo includes patented technology that enables density of up to hundreds of virtual environments per physical server.
Unlike virtual machines and hypervisors, Virtuozzo addresses the challenges faced by today's datacenters of operating system sprawl. Its unique architecture and management tools make it the ideal solution for provisioning, monitoring and managing virtualized server resources.
Under this agreement and in complete synergy with its corporate mission, Ready Informatica will provide full support for seeking-out and qualifying new leads, assisting partners and training via workshops for resellers and seminars for end users (thus creating opportunities for resellers). Ready Informatica will also become an official Virtuozzo training center.
Ready Informatica is an ideal partner for SWsoft to help extend our reach across the board with System Integrators that work at Enterprise level and resellers that serve medium and large-sized firms, said Uli Keller, Director of EMEA Enterprise Sales at SWsoft. We are convinced that their technical background with Citrix and Unix technologies, together with the capabilities of their team, will be key elements helping to develop the Virtuozzo channel.
Virtuozzo provides a unique solution, while operating system virtualization is a technological plus that has exceptional advantages, fundamental for those who decide to improve performance and slash costs by adopting a virtualized infrastructure, commented Marco Lorefice, Marketing Director at Ready Informatica. Backed by the experience of our channel partners in the field of virtualization technologies and our excellent collaboration with SWsoft, we expect to achieve striking results in the short term by introducing Virtuozzo to Italian firms.
