NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 25, 2008) - VIRTERA, a leading virtualization professional services and consulting firm specializing in maximizing virtualization ROI, announced today the grand opening of its new corporate headquarters in New York City. This expansion follows a dynamic twelve-month period which included the addition of many large enterprise customers across the financial services, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries; prestigious partner-of-the-year awards from several leading virtualization vendors for technical competence in architecting complex virtualization platforms; the introduction of a comprehensive suite of virtualization-specific professional and consulting services, and a year-over-year revenue growth rate of approximately 600%.

"Our new facility allows us to accommodate our rapid customer and employee growth while enabling us to more effectively deliver multi-vendor, enterprise level service engagements to the growing number of organizations adopting virtualized IT environments," said Howard Pavony, CEO of VIRTERA. "We're pleased that our proven vSpectrum methodology continues to be embraced by leading organizations and we're confident that our unique business solution offerings and vendor agnostic approach to virtualization technologies will continue to position us for strong future growth."

VIRTERA's strong customer growth and recent accolades have been driven by the rapid adoption of its industry leading vSpectrum consulting methodology. vSpectrum is based on a set of repeatable processes designed to help enterprise customers quickly adopt and realize the benefits of virtualization while mitigating the risk of introducing such a disruptive technology into their environment. VIRTERA's professional and consulting services are designed to solve many of today's most complex business and IT challenges, including:

--  Desktop Optimization

Steve Baxter, IT director for CooperVision, one of the world's largest contact lens manufacturers, relied on VIRTERA for their year-long data optimization project in 2007.

"With VIRTERA operating as a trusted third-party consulting partner, our virtualization deployments went smoothly and we were able to quickly recognize a solid return on our IT investment. Our expected cost savings should exceed $1M over the next three years, including $250,000 in maintenance and Total Cost-of-Ownership (TCO)."

VIRTERA has built a highly accomplished management and technology team comprised of virtualization industry leaders and employs the largest contingent of virtualization certified professionals on the East Coast. The company continues to expand geographically while increasing its technical depth and expertise and is certified in all leading virtualization technologies including VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix.
