TORONTO, June 21, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- PlateSpin Ltd. today announces new OS Portability technology that enables the complete interchange of data, applications, and operating systems (the software layer) across the Intel infrastructure in the data center. From most any target, to most any source, PlateSpin's OS Portability technology can automate the migration of the software layer to the servers that best match the needs of the workload, all from a single point of control. This breakthrough technology allows automated movement between physical servers (single CPU, SMP, multi-cores and Blades), virtual infrastructure servers (VMware ESX, GSX and Microsoft Virtual Server), and archived images (Symantec Live State, Acronis TrueImage, Ghost and others) to optimize the data center according to the capabilities of the physical and virtual infrastructure. For the first time, the software layer can be completely de-coupled from the hardware and its related infrastructure models, allowing data center managers to maximize the usage of their existing hardware resources, and adapt to changing conditions with speed and agility.
