Embrane Heleos Supports XenServer
Mar 26, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Embrane announced its heleos solution - a multi-service software platform that scales out on demand to power virtual network service - now supports XenServer version 6.0.
In a release, the Company noted Embrane's heleos is targeted to cloud service providers and enterprises building internal cloud infrastructure as a service offerings. It supports VMware ESX and ESXi versions 4.0 and 4.1.
heleos uses a pool of standards-based x86 servers and leverages basic compute virtualization technology to extract granular portions of compute resources that are used to create network service instances. The open platform leverages a scale-out architecture to instantly support dynamic application and compute workloads. It is designed to work in multiple network environments and is not constrained by existing or new technologies. Embrane will continue to add support for other hypervisors.
"Since we introduced heleos to the market, we continue to see tremendous demand for adding new levels of agility and programmability to the network, particularly with layer 4-7 network services," said John Vincenzo, vice president of marketing for Embrane. "By adding support for XenServer and several enhanced APIs, heleos meets the diverse requirements of cloud service providers and enterprises, while delivering the automation, scale-out performance and elasticity necessary to power network services in a dynamic data center."
The Company said with this new version of the heleos platform, the heleos Elastic Service Manager can provision heleos Distributed Virtual Appliances on Xen with the same performance and capacities as a heleos DVA on VMware.
In addition to the support for Xen, Embrane enhanced the new Rest APIs for both the heleos ESM and heleos DVAs.
Embrane is a provider of distributed software platforms.
