FastScale Introduces New Platform for Building, Optimizing and Managing Logical Servers in Next Generation Data Centers

June 1, 2009 by · Comments Off on FastScale Introduces New Platform for Building, Optimizing and Managing Logical Servers in Next Generation Data Centers 

Webmaster ToolsSANTA CLARA, Calif. – FastScale® Technology, Inc, provider of award-winning software platforms for next generation data centers, today announced the introduction of FastScale Stack Manager™ Workgroup Edition, a new product that enables enterprise IT and engineering teams to easily create, optimize and manage logical servers for deployment in physical, virtual or cloud environments. Logical servers enable a ‘build once, deploy anywhere’ methodology to support complex, dynamic and hybrid server infrastructure and allow a consistent approach to creating and managing physical and virtual machines throughout server lifecycles. FastScale Stack Manager provides a central platform with a one-button solution for administrators who need dynamic yet optimized server builds.

FastScale Stack Manager incorporates patent-pending Application Blueprinting™ technology to automatically generate logical servers with ‘just enough operating system’ (JeOS) and deliver lightweight server builds that are up to 95% smaller, inherently more secure, with dramatically reduced memory, processor and disk usage. In addition, new visualization and stack optimization tools enable users to quickly and easily analyze servers with a full operating system profile and then optimize by package group, file type or directory hierarchy with dynamic size calculations that support the assessment. The result can be compared to the FastScale Application Blueprint as an insurance policy against creating a server build with missing file dependencies – omitted files are easily added with a mouse click. Rich web based settings management allows policy-based standardization as well as fine-grained customization of logical server configurations. Read more
