Datastor helps launch vSphere 4 locally

VMware and distributor Datastor has held a Wellington event to announce the availability of vSphere 4, the vendor's next-generation virtualisation platform.

With the new release, eight cores can be added to a virtual machine (doubled from four previously), with enlarged memory capacity. The fault tolerance feature has also been highly anticipated. This provides a second, invisible virtual machine instance which kicks in if hardware failure occurs.

Datastor sales and marketing manager Dave Rosenberg says the release fits well with the challenging economic conditions. "We're in a very challenging environment. VMware has come out with a product that improves on an already compelling proposition in return on investment."

The event was held at Wellington's Te Papa museum and attracted about 250 partners and customers.

Rosenberg says Datastor will offer VMware's Essentials Pack, which includes servers and storage, and other bundles.

Paul Harapin, VMware managing director for Australia and New Zealand, says vSphere 4 allows improved IT performance. “The cost savings associated with virtualisation are undeniable, and as more customers standardise on VMware to drive 100 percent virtualisation, they are realising the additional benefits that our solutions deliver, including increased flexibility and agility.”
