Business description: PolyServe software consolidates servers and storage into manageable, scalable and available database and file serving utilities. This approach overcomes the limits of server virtualization to extend consolidation benefits to mission-critical applications, and addresses all three major data center cost footprints: hardware, software and storage. Our customers typically see their server and software installs cut in half, configuration and management time slashed by as much as 75%, and total cost of ownership lowered by more than 50%. More than 500 organizations worldwide are deploying PolyServe's products to build computing utilities for mission-critical database services and file services. The products are distributed through HP, IBM, Dell, Novell, Avnet, and a network of international distributors – along with PolyServe's direct sales force. PolyServe maintains strategic partnerships with HP, Microsoft, IBM, Dell and Novell.
