In summer ’09, VMLogix first announced our LabManager – Cloud Edition, running on top of the Amazon Web Services cloud, to bring virtual lab capabilities to public clouds. The “bursty” nature of virtual lab workloads – dev/test, software demos/POCs/evals and software training – make them great candidates to move from on-premise infrastructure to elastic, scalable clouds.
Our enablement of VMLogix LabManager on AWS was the first implementation of our Cloud Edition, and you’ll see more coming in the future.
At Synergy last week, VMLogix announced that we are working with Carpathia Hosting and Citrix to bring development and testing workloads to the cloud by integrating VMLogix LabManager with Carpathia’s InstantOn enterprise cloud offering. The resulting InstantOn Virtual Lab solution is an easy way for organizations to get started with virtual labs in the cloud.
