ENSIM AND RLX TECHNOLOGIES JOIN FORCES TO SUPPLY THE HOSTING INDUSTRY WITH HIGH-DENSITY HOSTING AUTOMATION SOLUTIONS Wednesday 19 December 2001 PDF Print New Sales, Marketing and Technology Relationship Dramatically Improves Service Provider Economics LONDON, December 19, 2001 – Ensim® Corporation, the leading hosting automation provider, and RLX Technologies™ Inc., the industry leader in high-density blade computer platforms, announced today a joint sales, marketing and technology agreement that empowers the hosting industry with an ultra-dense hosting automation solution. The two companies will cooperate to develop and provide solutions that combine Ensim’s flagship product, ServerXchange™ with RLX ServerBlades™. In addition, RLX Technologies and Ensim will cooperate on cross-platform integration of their automated management systems with RLX Control Tower™. As part of the agreement, Ensim’s ServerXchange will become the hosting automation platform of choice for the new integrated solution. With ServerXchange and RLX Control Tower, ISPs, data centre operators and Web hosters can easily manage servers, applications and customers from a central graphical management console across multiple operating systems. “The response to our agreement has been extremely positive among hosting providers who are constantly sharpening their pencils for higher returns and lower cost of operations,” said Sandip Gupta, vice president of business development at Ensim. “We see this agreement dramatically shifting the data centre landscape.” “The ServerBlade technology leadership of RLX and Ensim’s lead in hosting automation platforms brings exciting synergies to this partnership,” said RLX president and COO, Pat Collins. “From day one, the RLX/Ensim combination presents a highly compelling value proposition to our Web hosting customers. Looking forward, Ensim and RLX will aggressively pursue market solutions that enhance our superior Scale-Out value proposition.” Additionally, the firms will work to jointly deliver user-friendly Web appliances that reduce power consumption and optimise data centre space to hosting providers. Ensim’s WEBppliance is a control-panel solution for Linux and Windows 2000 environments. WEBppliance quickly converts any server into a virtual Web hosting tool with Web, email and DNS management. WEBppliance includes three levels of intuitive control panels, enabling hosting providers to delegate many administrative functions to site and user levels with a high degree of reseller autonomy for increased revenues and rapid time-to-market. In November, RLX Technologies introduced its 1U ServerBlade solution that contains six server blades. The RLX System 1U™ allows customers to convert their 1U server racks to much higher density, lower power consumption RLX ServerBlades that are easier to manage and significantly enhance data centre space utilisation. The RLX System 324™ can fit up to 24 ServerBlades in a 3U space. - ends - About RLX Technologies, Inc.
