As an indication of its gathering momentum, Blade.org, an open community dedicated to developing next-generation technologies for blade computing, has announced 20 new members and is delivering two partner-driven, blade-based “security-in-a-box” solutions.
Formally established in February, Blade.org provides collaboration and tools to ISVs and business partners looking to reach new markets and customers for blade-based technologies, what the community says represents the world’s fastest growing server market segment.
The new Blade.org members announced today include AudioCodes, Azlan, Azul Systems, Blade Network Technologies, Chelsio, ClearCube Technology, ClearSpeed Technology, DataCom Systems, Ericom Software, IDT, LANDesk Software, Mazu Networks, Neterion, Privacy Networks, SilverStorm Technologies, Sirius Computer Solutions, Softricity, Tarari, Teradici and Xambala. This brings total membership to 60.
“Today marks a milestone for Blade.org with 60 companies joined together to speed the creation of innovative products and solutions to clients around the globe,” comments Doug Balog, chairman of Blade.org, vice president of IBM BladeCenter. “The Blade.org community’s first customer deployments show that when technology is made open and accessible, we can speed the time which customers can move from concept to deployment.”
The two new solutions are from OpenServic and DataCom Systems. They provide real-time security threat and compliance management and video storage and management respectively.
