ScaleXtreme Announces New Cloud Provisioning and Management for Amazon EC2.

Integrated Cloud Management product manages full machine lifecycle

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- ScaleXtreme, Inc., a leading cloud-based systems management company, today announced the immediate availability of new cloud provisioning and management functionality, offering customers a comprehensive cloud management solution that can provision and manage the lifecycle of servers on Amazon EC2, as well as on-premise virtualized environments, and other hosting providers. Customers can go to and setup a free account to use this new functionality.

ScaleXtreme goes beyond simply providing the ability to provision instances from pre-existing Amazon Machine Images (AMIs). This unique approach enables both provisioning of new machines across Amazon EC2, and gives customers the ability to maintain those machines throughout the machines' lifecycle. The ScaleXtreme product includes features such as the ability to "live browse" the filesystem, registry, installed applications on the system, as well as advanced task automation. Also included is an integrated, version-controlled script "Library" as well as marketplace for community scripts that allow teams of IT admins to host their scripts in the cloud and run them easily across their cloud systems. Amazon EC2 machines can also be managed alongside customer's internal physical and virtual machines, as well as server workloads running in other hosted environments. This "single pane of glass" approach is truly unique to lifecycle management of virtual instances.

"ScaleXtreme is unique in that it manages the full lifecycle of a machine, wherever they might run - on an internal cloud or public cloud like Amazon EC2," said Nand Mulchandani, CEO of ScaleXtreme. "With this new functionality, customers don't have to stitch together multiple products to solve their hybrid-cloud provisioning and machine management needs - they can do it all from a single location in the cloud. We're pleased to be supporting and building on the rich Amazon EC2 platform."

Gartner Research Director Alessandro Perilli said: "Organizations are starting to grapple with managing their existing on-premise systems combined with their virtualized systems, both in private and public clouds. The ability to effectively manage all systems in a hybrid cloud in a consistent fashion from a single tool will be key in selecting systems management vendors."
