Infinitely Virtual Moves To VMware's vSphere5, Giving Customers The Ultimate In Virtualization Performance, Scalability And Control

Simplified Provisioning, Heightened Security and Enhanced Monitoring Among vSphere5 Powerhouse Features

Santa Monica, CA (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Infinitely Virtual, a leading provider of virtual server cloud computing services for businesses, today announced it has completed its upgrade to VMWare's vSphere5, providing customers with the industry's most advanced technology in virtualization. Building on Infinitely Virtual's customized approach to server capability, vSphere 5 will give customers greater scalability and more management control, along with increased security features and more simplified provisioning.

"We're dedicated to bringing our customers the absolutely most efficient, and reliable solution to virtualization, and VMWare's vSphere5 is a perfect example of how we are continuously upgrading our platform to the next level of technical excellence," said Adam Stern, Infinitely Virtual Founder and CEO. "Last year, our company experienced record growth, thanks largely to our commitment to the industry's most advanced virtual server technology, and our dedication to our customers' needs for scalability and customization."

Infinitely Virtual's upgrade to vSphere5 has been a significant benefit to Interprise Solutions – a Culver City, Calif. provider of CRM, ERP and accounting applications -- as it manages, and expands its cloud-based operations, according to Curt Rice, VP of Technical Service. "We were looking for a platform that can grow with us, yet provide the level of high security and reliability we demand," Rice said. "Infinitely Virtual's integration of vSphere5 into its service platform has answered all our needs."

Infinitely Virtual customers are benefitting from these key features of vSphere5:

  • Enhanced Scalability: Infinitely Virtual's integration of vSphere5 into its cloud hosting platform enables small and medium sized businesses to easily scale their storage capacity to the highest level needed. With vSphere5, virtual machines can now grow four times larger than in prior releases, to support even the largest applications. Virtual machines can now have up to 32 virtual CPUs and 1TB of RAM.
  • Business Critical Priority Control: vSphere5's new Storage I/O Control now supports NFS and network-attached storage (NAS) which enables cloud hosting companies to set storage quality of service priorities per virtual machine for better access to storage resources for high-priority applications. This ensures that virtual machines running business-critical applications have higher priority to access the I/O queue than that of other virtual machines sharing the same datastore.
  • Advanced Disk Performance: The Storage Distributed Resource Scheduler (SDRS) uses data store clusters to intelligently balance resource levels and oversee virtual disk placement automatically. Storage DRS and Profile-Driven Storage reduce the possibility of I/O bottlenecks, and provide a level of control over storage resources ensuring the highest disk performance to date.
  • Increased Security: vSphere5's new service-oriented and ESXistateless ?rewall engine restricts access to speci?c services by IP address or subnet. This is particularly useful for third-party components that require network access. Enabled by default, the firewall blocks all incoming and outgoing traffic with exceptions such as DNS and DHCP.
  • Simplified Provisioning: The new Auto Deploy advanced provisioning technology enables IT to automatically deploy servers "on the fly" and will be able to reduce the time it takes to deploy a datacenter with 40 servers from 20 hours to 10 minutes. Using a rules engine, Auto Deploy is able to precisely install specified images to the hosts of choice.
