NYFIX Chooses Egenera for Infrastructure Virtualization

MARLBORO, MA--(Marketwire - July 23, 2008) - Egenera Inc., the data center virtualization company, today announced that electronic trading systems pioneer NYFIX (NASDAQ: NYFX) has standardized on infrastructure virtualization solutions from Egenera.

"Given the mission critical nature of our applications, we needed a platform with high availability and sophisticated management capabilities to optimize our operations," said Don Henderson, CTO at NYFIX. "With Egenera systems, we're able to rapidly provision servers and bring applications to market much faster, and with far less infrastructure. This helps us keep ahead of the competition and get new services to market sooner."

Egenera® systems are highly available, flexible platforms that eliminate the need to rigidly dedicate servers to applications. Instead, Egenera's patented Processing Area Network (PAN) replaces server infrastructure with software, and automatically repurposes and reallocates virtual and physical servers on demand, with high availability and disaster recovery.

Available on multiple hardware platforms including Egenera's own integrated BladeFrame® system, Egenera® PAN Manager™ software delivers the next phase of virtualization by transforming physical and virtual IT infrastructure into flexible, scalable assets that can be allocated as needed. The result for customers is a dramatic improvement in the flexibility, agility and economics of IT infrastructure through a reduction in data center complexity.

NYFIX currently utilizes Egenera BladeFrame EX systems, which include 168 Processing Blade™ (pBlade™) modules based on both Intel® and AMD® processors.

"We see value in a tightly integrated, single management domain for both our physical and virtual environments. Egenera vBlade software enables us to reconfigure on the fly and provision a large number of servers rapidly," continued Henderson. "We see Egenera as a strategic part of our business and look forward to developing our relationship further."
