VMware Virtualization Partner VMPowered Becomes Xiotech Partner

VMware Authorized Consultant and Partner will Help Customers Move to Virtual Storage Environments Using Xiotech Storage Solution

Xiotech Corporation announced that VMPowered joined Xiotech's new channel program as a VMware Value Added Consultant Referral partner, effective March 1, 2008.

VMPowered is focused on helping companies move to a virtual IT environment, through virtual server and storage design, implementation and post-sales support. The company is a designated VMware Authorized Consultant (VAC) and VMware VIP Enterprise Partner. VMPowered works with end user customers directly and in partnership with storage vendors such as Xiotech.

"We are always looking to partner with companies that are bringing true best-of-breed products to the virtualization space and are thrilled to begin working with Xiotech," said Rod Lucero, chief technology officer, VMPowered. "Xiotech was the first company to develop true storage virtualization years ago and continues to show a deep commitment to the technology. With the current product line and new features in development, Xiotech offers incredibly seamless and differentiating storage management integration with VMware and virtualization technologies. This offers our customers the unique potential to automate storage operations while incorporating best practices."

Xiotech announced a new channel partner program to support growth opportunities in the near term. As part of the new program, Xiotech is placing increased emphasis on partnering with VMware Value Added Consultants, like VMPowered, that have specific storage virtualization and VMware technology expertise. This specialization helps customers integrate Xiotech's virtualized storage systems in ways that maximize the effectiveness and value of their virtual server environments.

Knowledge of virtual environments will be essential as Xiotech introduces upcoming features such as a new virtual administrative view, which will allow VMware users to better manage and automate their storage management operations from a single interface.

"As a proven leader in server and storage virtualization, VMPowered shares Xiotech's commitment to virtualization, and will help us reach customers more effectively," said Mike Gluck, vice president of Channel Development, Xiotech. "We're looking forward to building a strong relationship with VMPowered, and the company's expertise and market presence will be a real asset as we continue to deliver products and solutions optimized for VMware environments."
