SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(HotLink® Corporation, the market leader in transformation solutions for heterogeneous virtualization management, today announced its latest product, HotLink Hybrid Express™ for VMware vCenter, was selected as the “Best of Show” award winner as well as the Gold award winner in the “Virtualization Management” category at TechTarget’s “Best of VMworld 2012” awards. The judges chose this product “because it gives administrators a way to manage mixed environments using vCenter -- a tool that every admin knows how to use.”)--
“This award validates how important hybrid computing is to the industry as well as the innovation and ease of use HotLink is providing with HotLink Hybrid Express.”
Launched on August 14, 2012, HotLink Hybrid Express simplifies the management of hybrid clouds through a VMware vCenter plug-in for Amazon EC2 and CloudStack resources — no other management consoles are required. The only solution to natively extend VMware vCenter to public clouds, VMware users can consolidate deployment, administration and management of all on and off-premise resources with a single pane of glass — VMware vCenter. HotLink’s unique transformation technology abstracts public cloud platforms and workloads so VMware vCenter treats them just like vSphere hosts and VMs, fully integrated and managed as a unified pool of resources.
Utilizing customers’ existing VMware vCenter management infrastructure, HotLink Hybrid Express accelerates the process of deploying a combined on and off-premise hybrid infrastructure from weeks to just a few hours.
“We’re extremely excited that HotLink Hybrid Express is being recognized by some of the industry’s most knowledgeable experts for its ability to simplify the management of hybrid resources,” said Lynn LeBlanc, CEO and Founder of HotLink. “This award validates how important hybrid computing is to the industry as well as the innovation and ease of use HotLink is providing with HotLink Hybrid Express.”
The Best of VMworld 2012 awards winners were selected from more than 200 entries by an independent team of experts and editors from TechTarget's SearchServerVirtualization.com who evaluated products based on innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use.
