Parallels announced that Solar
Virtualization Technologies Group (VTG), a Platinum partner in the Parallels
Service Provider Partner Program, is using Parallels technologies to launch new
software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for small and medium businesses (SMBs).
Parallels Automation datacenter software
provides a centralized operations and business management system, which enables
Solar VTG to offers its customers integrated mobile and messaging services that
include Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint and Blackberry Enterprise
Server. Solar VTG provides a single interface to its customers who are actually
accessing services that rely on several internal and external application
servers and systems.
Parallels Virtuozzo Containers
virtualization software provides Solar VTG with the underlying infrastructure
to offer virtual private server (VPS) services, deliver SaaS applications and
manage internal administrative tasks with minimal effort. Parallels Virtuozzo
Containers enables Solar VTG to create new templates for services in just a few
hours instead of days.
"Using automation and virtualization
technology from Parallels, we have been able to create an optimized
infrastructure to fully automate our service delivery platform and offer
complex services without cumbersome new customer setup and order provisioning,"
said Ross Brouse, CEO of Solar VTG. "The Parallels solution handles our
billing, provisioning, licensing and management, so we can focus on our
customers and partners."
"We are pleased to partner with
Solar VTG to help optimize the infrastructure supporting their new
SaaS business," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Parallels. "Solar VTG
demonstrates how Parallels products can be used as an effective delivery
platform for SaaS offerings targeted to the SMB market."
Parallels Virtuozzo Containers is an operating
system (OS) virtualization solution. On a single physical server and single OS
installation, it enables users to run workloads in multiple, simultaneously
running execution environments called "containers". Compared to other
virtualization technologies, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers offers high levels
of density, performance and manageability.
