EMC acquires FastScale Technology
Posted on 2-Sep-2009 09:07. | Tags Filed under: News.

EMC Corporation has acquired FastScale Technology, Inc., a privately-held, Santa Clara, California-based provider of software platforms and solutions for next generation enterprise IT -- adding a new dimension to the EMC Ionix portfolio to increase the performance and scalability of private cloud infrastructures.

Designed from the ground up to accelerate the move from physical to virtual to private cloud, with the addition of FastScale, the EMC Ionix portfolio will simplify end-to-end management and maximize the performance, density and efficiency of applications and software deployed on unified infrastructures.

The acquisition of FastScale extends EMC Ionix solutions for automating IT management across a unified infrastructure of storage, compute, network and virtualization resources, enabling customers to accelerate their transition from a physical to a virtualized data center to the private cloud and to maximize the value of their new enterprise IT architectures.

FastScale’s technology simplifies application and server stack management and optimizes deployment for physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures, providing significant footprint benefits that allow data centers to run up to three times more virtual machines without degrading performance. In addition FastScale’s technology decreases memory and disk usage by up to 75%, enabling some of the highest levels of tier-one application performance in the private cloud.

The announcement comes on the heels of an expanded business and technology alliance between EMC and VMware. Key to this expanded alliance, the companies announced a new reseller agreement whereby EMC is now a fully authorized reseller of VMware vCenter AppSpeed. This new solution, along with EMC’s virtualization services, will be offered through EMC Select as part of the EMC Ionix portfolio, enabling customers to have full management capabilities across their physical and virtual IT infrastructures.

EMC has spent over $1 billion on acquisition and R+D over the last few years to assemble its legacy-free portfolio of management capabilities. The company says it is the only suite in the market to offer CIOs, one consistent management framework across their physical, virtual and Cloud environments.

EMC Ionix uses real-time models of the IT infrastructure, to provide for all the customers best practices/ITIL processes.. The addition, FastScale will now extend Ionix modelling paradigm to include the server and application objects.

As a result of the acquisition, FastScale will join EMC’s Ionix Software Group, reporting to Jay Mastaj.
