RENTON, Wash., April 30, 2008 - Parallels announced today that Solar Virtualization Technologies Group (VTG), a Platinum partner in the Parallels Service Provider Partner Program, is using Parallels technologies to launch new Softwareas as a Service (SaaS) solutions for small and medium businesses (SMBs).
Parallels Automation datacenter software provides a centralized operations and business management system, which enables Solar VTG to offers its customers integrated mobile and messaging services that include Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint and Blackberry Enterprise Server. Solar VTG provides a single interface to its customers who are actually accessing services that rely on several internal and external application servers and systems.
Parallels Virtuozzo Containers virtualization software provides Solar VTG with the underlying infrastructure to offer virtual private server (VPS) services, deliver SaaS applications and manage internal administrative tasks with minimal effort. Parallels Virtuozzo Containers enables Solar VTG to create new templates for services in just a few hours instead of days.
"Using automation and virtualization technology from Parallels, we have been able to create an optimized infrastructure to fully automate our service delivery platform and offer complex services without cumbersome new customer setup and order provisioning," said Ross Brouse, CEO of Solar VTG. "The Parallels solution handles our billing, provisioning, licensing and management, so we can focus on our customers and partners."
"We are pleased to partner with Solar VTG to help optimize the infrastructure supporting their new SaaS business," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Parallels. "Solar VTG demonstrates how Parallels products can be used as an effective delivery platform for SaaS offerings targeted to the SMB market."
