Virtualization is rapidly becoming a standard piece of the deployment platform

AccuRev Inc. announced today that its best-of-breed software configuration management solution, AccuRev SCM, has been qualified to run on virtual machines. AccuRev has announced support for VMware® (NYSE:EMC), and Sun Solaris™ 10 Zones from Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: SUNW).
Virtualization is rapidly becoming a standard piece of the deployment platform in IT organizations because the technology provides tangible benefits both in terms of capital cost reductions and operational flexibility. This is spurring CIOs to push for more rapid adoption of enterprise applications that fully support server virtualization.
The AccuRev server application, which runs on most Microsoft Windows, Linux and Unix platforms, does not embed itself into the operating system (OS) kernel and does not require special I/O services so it does not have to be installed on an isolated server. This improves an organization’s strategic initiative to leverage computing resources and makes it much easier to maintain in a modern IT infrastructure than many traditional SCM tools.
Lorne Cooper, CEO of AccuRev, said, “With the recent push for IT efficiency and consolidation, enterprises are seeking to increase business agility by simplifying IT infrastructures and getting more out of computing resources. Virtualization technology has seen remarkable adoption rates and for customers embarking on a virtualization strategy AccuRev will ensure that we will natively run in their environment.”
