BOXBOROUGH, MA - March 28, 2012- Egenera®, a leader in management software for converged infrastructure, together with Fujitsu Technology Solutions, a leading provider of information and communication technology (ICT)-based business solutions, announced a joint agreement to resell Egenera software. Fujitsu Technology Solutions will now resell and support PAN Manager® on the Fujitsu PRIMERGY BX900 blade server platform, delivering customers an infrastructure solution that reduces costs and complexity, improves manageability and automates the business continuity process.
Fujitsu Technology Solutions will incorporate PAN Manager into its product, solutions and service offerings, to help customers modernize their data centers and build out flexible and dynamic environments.
"Customers increasingly are looking for technologies that enable them modernize IT and embrace the cloud," said Matt Eastwood, group vice president and general manager, Enterprise Platforms at IDC. "At the same time, they are demanding solutions built on industry standards. For customers, openness is the foundation for improving the manageability, agility, availability and economics of the data center."
Egenera's PAN Manager helps to reduce the IT infrastructure complexity by reducing server, SAN and other network components by up to 80 percent and thus significantly reducing capital expenditures. Additionally, as users can build a server in minutes, rapidly provisioning the hardware for both virtual and bare metal applications, PAN Manager dramatically reduces operational costs. Finally, by ensuring availability, PAN Manager marginalizes the cost of downtime. Working with any hypervisor, network, and storage array, PAN Manager's heterogeneous and multi-tenant support brings security, investment protection and peace of mind to IT.
"In today's complex IT environments it is more important than ever to create solutions that simplify IT operations," said Uwe Romppel, Head of Product Development Group Server, Fujitsu Technology Solutions. "The combination of Fujitsu's industry leading PRIMERGY BX900 blade server platform and Egenera's PAN Manager software forms a solution which allows IT managers to simply consolidate and automate their environments, reducing the risk and impact of infrastructure failures, without relying on complex configuration synchronization between production and recovery sites."

"With the integration of PAN Manager and Fujitsu hardware, our customers are ensured access to key resources and have on-demand capacity in a platform designed to run their business and meet the business requirements."
