"Later this week, sources tell me that Convirture, maker of open source-based virtualization management software, will announce a very close partnership with Eucalyptus Systems, creators of the eponymous private cloud platform. The agreement will have the two companies working together to integrate ConVirt 2.0 Enterprise with both Eucalyptus' open-source cloud platform and Eucalyptus Enterprise Edition. In addition, the two companies will cooperate on sales, marketing and support activities.

"ConVirt 2.0 Enterprise is meant to provide Eucalyptus private cloud users with management capabilities that were previously only available on closed-source products. ConVirt software manages virtual and private-cloud environments based on open platforms such as Linux, Xen and KVM. ConVirt 2.0 Enterprise provides advanced automation and scalability features for use in large and/or mission-critical environments, including high availability, backup and recovery, storage and network automation, and enterprise-grade security. It also includes tools and features for managing hosted and private clouds."
