Founded in 2003, Virtual Iron provides cost-effective, production-ready server virtualisation software for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The solutions deliver comparable capabilities to VMware without the cost and complexity. The company is led by an experienced management team and backed by top-tier investors including Highland Capital, Matrix Partners, Goldman Sachs, Intel Capital and SAP Ventures.

What Is Virtualisation?
Server virtualisation is transforming today's data center into a flexible, highly utilized set of virtual resources. By allowing multiple applications and operating systems to co-exist and share resources on a single physical server, virtualisation is dramatically increasing server utilization rates while reducing power, cooling and space requirements.
Organizations ranging from small to medium-size businesses to large enterprises have deployed server virtualisation solutions to consolidate the large number of single purpose, single application x86 servers. Many of these same organizations are also turning to server virtualisation to accelerate the development and testing of applications so that new applications can be deployed and provisioned rapidly with a high degree of confidence.

With today's powerful and energy efficient dual core and quad core x86 server platforms, IT users are able to run dozens of virtual machines on a single physical server. The leading candidates for virtualisation include:

1. Workloads consuming a small server footprint
  • Infrastructure (Web, DHCP, firewall, file print servers)
  • Messaging, small or partitionable databases

2. Servers with high rates of reconfiguration
  • Development and testing servers
  • Staging and proof of concept servers

3. Workloads with high uptime requirements
  • Share redundant elements across many workloads

With consolidation efforts underway, many IT users are looking to leverage server virtualisation solutions for more advanced use cases such as capacity management and workload balancing, business continuity and utility computing.

IT industry research firm Gartner, Inc. named Virtualisation a “Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2008” and defines the next generation of Virtualisation solutions as Virtualisation 2.0: "With the addition of automation technologies – with service-level, policy-based active management – resource efficiency can improve dramatically, flexibility can become automatic based on requirements, and services can be managed holistically, ensuring high levels of resiliency."

Virtual Iron has been delivering policy-based active management since 2006 based on our LiveMigration™ technology including dynamic capacity load balancing, automated high availability and disaster recovery.
