Neverfail for VMware VirtualCenter ensures that IT administrators will not lose access to the features provided by VMware VirtualCenter despite IT interruptions ranging from component failure to external interruptions. VMware VirtualCenter provides centralized monitoring, remote management, and rapid provisioning capabilities, and serves as the control point for valuable services such as VMware VMotion and VMware Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS). VMware VMotion enables the migration of live virtual machines between physical servers, and VMware DRS dynamically allocates and balances computing capacity within a group of VMware ESX Server hosts. This functionality yields significant benefits including increased efficiency and flexibility — provided that VMware VirtualCenter Server can be accessed by an IT administrator.

Neverfail for VMware VirtualCenter offers advanced proactive monitoring of VMware VirtualCenter Server and its underlying environment by constantly checking the health of the hardware, network infrastructure, operating system and the management server software itself. If an issue arises with VMware VirtualCenter Server or one of its components, the system fails over to a secondary server which contains all data and maintains connectivity to VMware VirtualCenter until the outage can be resolved. The entire failover process is transparent and IT administrators can continue utilizing the management features of VMware VirtualCenter.

"The remarkable uptake of virtualization in companies of all sizes has resulted in far greater efficiency in the data center, whether it is through cost-savings or the ability to manage resources based on key business needs," said Peter Parker, Neverfail Group CEO. "VMware VirtualCenter manages the entire virtual infrastructure, and by offering a continuous availability solution for this product, Neverfail ensures that both IT administrators and end users experience the full benefits that virtualization has to offer."

"Virtualization has moved far beyond server partitioning and consolidation on individual systems. VMware customers are now standardizing on VMware Infrastructure and creating more dynamic and scalable IT infrastructures by aggregating compute power into pools of resources," said Parag Patel, vice president, alliances at VMware. "VMware VirtualCenter is the foundation for managing these resource pools, and while individual VMware ESX Server hosts and virtual machines are unaffected by unplanned downtime, the overall productivity of administrators can certainly be impacted. Neverfail's new product offering can be used to protect VMware VirtualCenter and complement the many benefits of VMware Infrastructure."

VMware customers around the world are also using Neverfail solutions to complement their virtualization projects and increase the availability of applications running within virtual machines. The ability of Neverfail to protect mission-critical applications through advanced application monitoring and replication enables continuous availability throughout the virtualization lifecycle.

Neverfail protects a wide range of Windows-based applications including Microsoft(R) Exchange, SharePoint(R), SQL Server, File Server and IIS, as well as RIM BlackBerry(R) and IBM(R) Lotus(R) Domino(R). Neverfail's products can be implemented in physical and virtual environments and over a LAN or WAN which offers businesses the ability to locate their secondary server in the next room or across the globe. Neverfail's virtualized offerings are now available through more than 850 channel partners and distributors or direct. For more information, please visit http://www.neverfailgroup.com .
