Egenera Signs First Virtualization 2.0 Partner
Egenera claims it's the archetype Virtualization 2.0 company to VMware's Virtualization 1.0

Egenera, which claims it's the archetype Virtualization 2.0 company to VMware's Virtualization 1.0 - and is going put its PAN Manager software on other people's hardware to prove it - has convinced Fujitsu Siemens, which OEMs Egenera's BladeFrame servers, to put PAN on its own industry-standard Primergy servers.

It's Egenera's first PAN partnership since the American company said last week that it was setting up a software line of business around PAN and would move the software out through fellow OEMs.

Fujitsu Siemens says the widgetry will form part of its FlexFrame Infrastructure, its latest milestone in its Dynamic Data Center strategy of creating business-responsive IT using the latest virtualization and automation technologies.

While they were at it, the pair announced a three-year extension to their OEM arrangement. Fujitsu Siemens sells BladeFrames in EMEA, claiming wins in 20 countries over the last two years.

The extended deal includes joint development components like the integration of PAN with Fujitsu Siemens' ServerView Suite and its Primergy BX600 blade server as part of its FlexFrame Infrastructure line.

FlexFrame Infrastructure is supposed to be an application-agnostic service-oriented infrastructure.

While VMware virtualizes individual servers, PAN virtualizes the data center, creating networks of virtual and physical servers, and can move individual servers, groups of servers or entire systems from one place to another seamlessly and securely with verifiable disaster recovery and uptime, qualifying for what IDC calls Virtualization 2.0.
