Virtualisation and automation specialist Parallels today announced that Computacenter, the leading European independent provider of IT infrastructure services, is offering enterprise customers its server virtualisation tool, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers. The product gives users greater utilisation from their server hardware by creating virtual servers or "containers" so multiple isolated workloads can run simultaneously. Parallels Virtuozzo Containers sits on the operating system (OS) level, rather than directly on top of the hardware, resulting in higher density and performance levels than other server virtualisation products on the market.

Paul Casey, Datacentre and Storage Virtualisation Technology Leader, Computacenter stated, "We’ve added Parallels Virtuozzo Containers to our virtualisation portfolio because we want to be able to offer our customers the best solution to meet their specific needs. For Computacenter this significantly increases the virtualisation opportunity, not just from a product but also a services perspective. In some cases, such as with high performance applications, other server virtualisation solutions based on hypervisor technology will not be suitable due to the application performance degradations incurred when you virtualise on the hardware level. In contrast, you can put these workloads into a Parallels environment and you know they will just perform."

Likewise, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers offers three times the density of other server virtualisation solutions, and this makes it a far more cost-effective approach to adopting a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), adds Casey. "We are really excited about the revenue opportunities that Parallels Virtuozzo Containers will create. We’ve been selling hypervisor technology for a while, but this gives us another string to our bow. Parallels are offering healthy margins, but for us the big benefit is in the services engagements this technology will enable. To date people have used virtualisation in pockets of the organisation, however it has not been deployed across the datacentre. With Parallels added to our virtualisation portfolio we can now start to look at optimising the entire data centre including the infrastructure being used for business critical applications. For us this means much larger services engagements around things like consolidation or virtual desktop infrastructure projects."

Following accreditation and training of Computacenter’s engineers and sales team, Parallels certified them as a gold partner. This means they will be receive preferential pricing, qualified opportunities generated by Parallels, and ongoing support in terms of technical expertise and marketing activities such as seminars and tailored webinars.

Russell Blackburn, Country Manager UK and Ireland, Parallels said "Computacenter has access to some of the biggest enterprise accounts in the country and we consider them a very important addition to our partner base. We look forward to a productive long-term relationship, offering them exclusive benefits to help them grow their customer base and identify new opportunities. By working together we can provide customers with a unique approach to virtualisation that will enable them to optimise huge parts of their infrastructure that simply could not be done with other virtualisations technologies."
