CenterBeam's Virtual Server Management offering is based on virtualization software technology that "transforms" IT hardware into software making it possible to significantly reduce rack space and associated server costs. Traditional computer hardware was designed to run a single operating system and one application, but virtualization makes it possible to condense hardware resources and run multiple operating systems and multiple applications on the same computer at the same time. However, the benefits of virtualization depend largely on how well the virtual infrastructure is designed and managed.

Shahin Pirooz, CenterBeam's CTO, says, "Deploying a virtual infrastructure requires a different way of thinking from a traditional physical infrastructure. There are a lot of data points to analyze to make sure a virtual server is optimized, such as existing and anticipated loads, disk input/output and memory capacity. This is why CenterBeam is pleased to offer this service to our customers and help them reap the benefits of virtualization without the cost and resource burden of making it happen."

CenterBeam's Remote DBA offering provides extensive database infrastructure support to companies with limited budget and/or in-house expertise. CenterBeam certified database administrators manage and maintain the Microsoft(R) SQL Server databases remotely, ensuring high availability, high reliability and optimal performance. Customers receive a best-in-breed infrastructure for a fixed monthly rate, eliminating the need for essential database monitoring software and hardware investments.

Both services are immediately available as part of CenterBeam's turnkey managed IT service portfolio or individually as a way to extend in-house IT resources. CenterBeam is certified as a VMware(R) Authorized Consultant (VAC), VMware VIP Enterprise Partner, Citrix(R) Certified Partner and Microsoft(R) Gold Certified Partner.
