Ensim’s ServerXchange and Compaq ProLiant Systems to be Packaged for Regional Customers: Telcos, Internet Data Centres and Web Hosters
London UK, June 18, 2001 – Ensim Corporation, the dominant hosting automation provider, and Compaq Computer Corporation (NYSE: CPQ) announced today at the CommunicAsia trade show here an expansion of their agreement that initiates a joint sales program in Asia Pacific to deliver greater Microsoft WindowsÒ 2000 and Linux server automation. The thrust of the new program is the effective regional packaging of Ensim’s flagship product, ServerXchange™, with Compaq ProLiantÔ servers and storage. The original worldwide joint marketing agreement for automated hosting solutions was announced in April 2001.
In the growing Asia-Pacific market, prospective customers include telecommunications carriers, Internet data centres and hosting providers, who will be called on by a joint Ensim/Compaq sales team including the Compaq sales channel. The joint solution will enable hosting providers in the region to rapidly scale and effectively manage their server infrastructures to meet forecasted high growth. International Data Corp. expects shared and dedicated hosting revenues in Asia Pacific to grow from nearly $1.75 billion in 2002 to approximately $4 billion by 2004. In addition, IDC has recently reported on the region’s high proportion of businesses currently on the Web such as Korea with some 90% of business Web penetration, Taiwan and Australia at about 80%, Singapore and the Philippines at some 70%, and the People’s Republic of China approaching 80%.
“Ensim has extraordinary momentum in Asia Pacific, where service providers are aggressively adopting hosting automation to improve the economics of server infrastructures and quickly deploy reseller plans,” said Effendy Shahul-Hamid, Ensim’s managing director, Asia Pacific. “Working in conjunction with Compaq, and based on our first-hand experiences, we expect the combined solution to be widely and rapidly adopted in the region for Linux and Windows 2000 server implementations.”
“The Compaq and Ensim solution empowers service providers to rapidly reduce costs in their data centre operations and hence drive increased profitability, said Mark Manners, director Service Provider and Wireless Infrastructure, Compaq Asia Pacific. “We are committed to bring to our service provider customers, the best-in-class solutions on our proven platforms, so that Service Providers in the region can leverage our worldwide expertise and leading-edge technologies.”
The point-and-click interface of Ensim ServerXchange combined with proven ProLiant management tools will greatly reduce from hours to minutes the provisioning and management of servers, including the operating system and application layer. In turn, hosting providers will be able to shift valuable skilled resources towards activities that create competitive differentiation such as world-class support, self-administration down to the end-user, and value-added services.
Ensim’s ServerXchange provides complete management capabilities for service providers and Web hosting providers of all sizes. ServerXchange enables them to easily provision and manage servers, applications and services, and customers from a central graphical management console, on multiple operating systems. ServerXchange is designed for providers who are expanding into hosting, building a new data centre, building and managing a reseller channel, creating and expanding plans and services, or developing a high-density hosting operation.
