Data center software company Cassatt will manage virtual machines from start-up XenSource.
Data center software company Cassatt said on Monday that it will distribute and support virtualization software from start-up XenSource later this year.
An upcoming version of Cassatt's Cross Virtualization Manager (XVM) software will support XenEnterprise, a commercial version of open-source software for running several instances, or virtual machines, of an operating system on a server. Cassatt can already manage virtual machines from VMWare and is adding the XenSource software in response to customer demand, Cassatt executives said. Cassatt's software is used to automate management of data center components, including hardware servers, application servers and virtual machines, to allow applications to respond to changes in computing demand.
