SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Convirture is expanding its presence in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) with a dedicated team to meet the growing demand for its virtualization and cloud management software. Martyn Richards, a veteran technology executive, will head the team in a new, UK-based office.
"We're seeing growing demand globally as more and more enterprises realize the need for consolidated management of their virtualization and cloud computing resources," said Arsalan Farooq, CEO of Convirture. "Convirture EMEA will help us better serve existing customers while developing new business in the UK and throughout Europe the Middle East and Africa."
Convirture tackles a growing challenge as data centers become more complex with multiple virtual and cloud resources. Increasingly, it becomes apparent that to manage it all with a 'single-pane-of-glass' is not a luxury, but a necessity. ConVirt offers sophisticated management capabilities for virtual and cloud platforms, including KVM, Xen, Hyper-V, VMware and Amazon EC2, at a fraction of the cost of the dedicated point solutions that are available for each individual technology.
Beyond providing a comprehensive virtual and cloud management tool, ConVirt provides sophisticated functional capabilities for each individual platform. So ConVirt does not merely manage the native toolsets that are available for each platform. Instead, it adds features so that all platforms that are being managed by ConVirt are brought to a level of usability and functionality that is simply not possible with native virtualization and cloud management tools.
"The issue of managing different virtualization technologies in the datacenter, alongside cloud platforms is the proverbial 'elephant in the room' and with ConVirt software, we've got the perfect answer," said Richards. "I see a great opportunity to bring Conviture's innovative products to address this pain point that enterprises sooner or later find they must address."
Convirture was founded in 2007 to help organizations effectively manage open source and proprietary virtualization and cloud platforms. More information is available at www.convirture.com.
