DynamicOps Debuts Upgrade to Award-Winning Cloud Automation and Management Platform at VMworld

Showcases Enhanced Private/Public Cloud Integration with Amazon EC2, Expanded VDI Capabilities

BURLINGTON, Mass, August 24, 2011 - DynamicOps, the only provider of the Operations Virtualization™ platform enabling unified cloud automation and management, today announced that it will debut its newly announced upgrade to the award-winning DynamicOps Cloud Automation Center at VMworld 2011, Las Vegas, Nevada, August 30-September 1, 2011. Attendees are welcome to visit booth #1341, where DynamicOps will showcase the extended platform capabilities for private cloud and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) implementations, as well as private cloud integration with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

"Savvy enterprises that are considering cloud computing realize they need a solution that can easily and cost-effectively evolve. This means enabling them to rapidly create and extend a private cloud that spans servers and desktops, allowing them to burst to the public cloud while adhering to the same policies as the private cloud, and future-proofing their infrastructure so they can leverage technology advancements," said Rich Krueger, CEO of DynamicOps. "DynamicOps Cloud Automation Center was designed to make all of this possible, and with its new capabilities and extended options, we make it even easier."

The company unveiled new support for Amazon EC2 and expanded support for the physical and virtual resources comprising a cloud infrastructure:

DynamicOps Public Cloud Gateway: Amazon EC2 Support
Deploy virtual machines in Amazon EC2 via DynamicOps' self-service portal-unifies public and private cloud capacity under a single governance model based on a customer's unique systems and processes including implementation of budget-based limits on resource usage and generating chargeback and capacity reports.

Cisco UCS, Dell and HP Servers through DynamicOps Physical Resource Manager
Discover, provision and manage Cisco UCS servers via Cisco UCS Manager, Dell servers via Dell iDRAC, and HP servers via HP iLo.

Transform XenDesktop-based VDI into a Virtual Desktop Cloud
Extended integration for XenDesktop 5 enables automated, end-to-end control of the virtual desktop lifecycle and makes it easy to transform VDI into virtual desktop cloud.

VMware vSphere 5
Continued commitment to supporting the VMware platform with vSphere 5.

New Image Deployment Options
New options that extend DynamicOps' already robust alternatives for operating system and application deployments include leveraging Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager and PXE Boot.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
