Cassatt to Deliver 'QuickStart' Services for Automating Management of Data Centers Running VMware
To Help Customers Manage Physical and Virtual Machines, Will Support VMware Infrastructure 3

Cassatt has announced it will deliver a specific virtualization and automation “QuickStart” professional services engagement for customers considering Cassatt and VMware solutions. In addition, Cassatt will extend support to the latest version of VMware’s products, VMware Infrastructure 3, in the next version of Cassatt Collage, a software platform that automates the management of data center resources to improve application service levels. XVM will support VMware Infrastructure 3 in the next release of the product later this calendar year.

The Cassatt Collage Cross-Virtualization Manager (XVM) QuickStart service is a two-week, fixed-price engagement that delivers a best-practice methodology to help customers accelerate the deployment of virtualization projects through a working prototype. Additionally, the Cassatt professional services team will work with customers to create an implementation roadmap for a full-scale automated virtualization control and management deployment effort.

At the conclusion of the Cassatt Collage XVM QuickStart service, organizations will have:

A demonstration of a working prototype that addresses agreed upon “proof points,” along with design documents and necessary software

An understanding of the Cassatt Collage platform and the Cassatt Collage

XVM module and recommendations for implementation through a detailed implementation report
Estimates, a strategy, and best practices for a full-scale virtualization control and management infrastructure deployment

In delivering the Cassatt Collage XVM QuickStart service, Cassatt’s expert architects and product specialists use field-tested industry best practices and methodologies to dramatically reduce the time, scope, and costs associated with project implementations. The QuickStart service is organized into the following phases:

• Prototype definition
• Requirements analysis and design
• Installation, configuration & implementation
• Delivery and engagement review

These services engagements will focus on identifying and delivering the technical and business benefits of joint Cassatt and VMware solutions.

Cassatt and VMware

In April, Cassatt joined the VMware Technology Alliance Program. At that time, Cassatt announced that the company would optimize its flagship product Collage with VMware ESX and VMware Server, virtual infrastructure software for partitioning, consolidating, and managing servers in mission-critical environments. In addition, Cassatt and VMware planned to provide cooperative support for joint customers.

“As a member of the VMware Technology Alliance, Cassatt is dedicated to optimizing Cassatt Collage functionality for VMware to meet the needs of our customers,” said Gamiel Gran, vice president of worldwide channels and alliances for Cassatt. “And, by offering a QuickStart services program, Cassatt can offer our enterprise buyers a way to evaluate how they can incorporate virtualization into their larger data center management plans along with concrete plans and capabilities for doing so.”
