Virtualization and Workload Management
PlateSpin addresses the increasing complexity of data center server management by allowing data center managers to more easily leverage the benefits of server virtualization and consolidation.
PlateSpin’s Operating System Portability (OSP) technology allows operating systems, data, and applications to be easily moved between computers, between physical and virtual, from a single point of control. Founded in 2003, PlateSpin Ltd is headquartered in Toronto, Canada.
Platespin was acquired by Novell, Inc. (Nasdaq: NOVL) in 2008 for approximately $205 million.
What people are saying
I have worked extensively with the team from an operational perspective. One tremendous benefit for me has been the ability to tap into the concentrated marketing expertise the team distills from its work with many different companies. They have also built a powerful marketing metrics infrastructure for us. This enables me to manage my marketing budget from a return-on-investment perspective, and helps me find opportunities for growing my leads that are both sizeable and profitable.Cadman Chui, Former VP Marketing
