VM6 Makes Virtualization Easier for Small Businesses

VM6 Software claims to have a solution for small businesses that haven't been able to afford virtualization.

The startup says its VMex technology allows users to deploy Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments without the need for separate shared data storage, a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) broker or management tools.

VMex 2.1, which the company unveiled this week, requires just VMex and Windows running on two servers, with pricing set at $4,000 per host regardless of size, according to co-founder and COO Eric Courville.

VMex allows users to create a virtual storage area network (SAN) using server disks, and it offers a VDI broker, a single management interface, and clustering and high availability options.

VMex 2.1 gets improved high availability and storage recovery, with a multi-array hub-witness that improves protection against unexpected crashes caused by power outages of entire sites, without a need for manual intervention.

The software also gets simplified event monitoring with email notification, a storage integrated dashboard, and a virtual desktop session manager.

Claude Goudreault, founder and CEO of VM6 Software, said in a statement that VMex "changes the face of virtualization by providing a solution that many SMBs have previously thought to be out of reach because of costs and complexity. By addressing a wide range of application needs, VM6 VMex 2.1's innovative architecture will help break through these boundaries and bring virtualization to all organizations."
