Eutelia and Cirba Announce Partnership

Eutelia’s Eunics Standardizes on Cirba’s Analytics Software for Planning in Virtualization and Consolidation Engagements

Toronto, Ontario (Canada) and Arezzo (Italy), January 22, 2008 - Cirba Inc., a leader in Data Center Intelligence, and Eutelia announced today that Eutelia’s Eunics for Information & Communication Technology (ICT) solutions and services operation has standardized on Cirba’s virtualization and server consolidation analytics software for use in planning and managing consolidation engagements.

Cirba’s Data Center Intelligence (DCI) analytics software enables organizations to determine optimal virtualization and consolidation strategies and plans based on detailed analysis of their unique environment. Cirba is the only solution that analyzes the unique workload patterns, technical and non-technical constraints associated with an IT environment that impact the success and efficiency of virtualization and consolidation initiatives. Cirba also helps organizations keep virtualized environments optimized by enabling the avoidance of virtual sprawl and better management of technologies such as VMware’s Distributed Resource Scheduler and VMotion.

“The result of Cirba’s analysis is a graphical map illustrating which combinations of virtual servers and associated applications are most compatible (a form of affinity analysis). Eutelia’s consultants find the tool particularly useful when deploying new applications, because it identifies compatible, underutilized machines capable of supporting additional workload, thus obviating the need for new hardware,” said Daniele Salpietro, Responsible of Eutelia Business Units for Virtual Infrastructure and Datacenter Managed Services.

”We are extremely pleased to have partnered with an organization of this calibre,” said Ayman Gabarin, Vice President, Europe, Middle East and Africa at Cirba. “Just as in the North American market, we are seeing the size, scope, and complexity of consolidation initiatives grow in Europe organizations and with it the need for analytical tools like Cirba to facilitate planning and management.”
