Virtual Iron Tool Creates Virtual Scalable System
Virtual Iron VFe creates virtual building blocks between servers, enabling administrators to partition the virtual system into increments as small as a fraction of a server to large multiple-processor systems.Virtual Iron Software Inc. on Monday unveiled Version 1.0 of its upcoming data center virtualization offering. Virtual Iron is readying Virtual Iron VFe, software that enables users to partition processing power across multiple industry-standard servers, said Alex Vasilevsky, executive vice president, chief scientist and co-founder of the Acton, Mass., company.
The product is scheduled to ship in May and will support Linux operating systems from Red Hat Inc. and Novell Inc.s SuSE Linux unit. It runs on 32- and 64-bit x86 systems and uses InfiniBand as the interconnect between the servers to create the virtual building blocks.
