Winfrasoft IAG Appliances on Hyper-V and VMware

Winfrasoft are pleased to announce the immediate availability of IAG 2007 based appliances on both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware virtualisation platforms. The new virtual appliances are built on the same solution orientated foundation as the physical Winfrasoft appliances - this includes many features not found in Microsoft’s own vanilla Hyper-V only offering.

Separating IAG from traditional hardware appliances allows IAG to leverage failover and redundancy technology offered by the virtualisation platforms, such as Live Migration and VMotion. It also helps with the green credentials by fitting in with server consolidation plans.

Winfrasoft currently produce physical IAG and ISA server appliances based on HP hardware, with Dell and Fujitsu coming shortly. Extending the platform line-up by adding Hyper-V and VMware gives IT administrators greater choice and flexibility when looking for a deployment vehicle.
