AirVM helps make a VMware cloud platform easier to manage

Insight has entered into a joint venture with AirVM, the provider of cloud management software which helps cloud service providers optimise the use of their VMware cloud platform.

Rob Ashworth, sales director of hosting at Insight, said: “We want to help our customers, the cloud providers, to deploy their environment as effectively as possible. That´s why we entered into the collaboration with AirVM.”

The partnership covers not only the UK, but all of EMEA. He said: “In the US, we´ve already been delivering AirVM software for some time now.” AirVM helps make a VMware cloud platform easier to manage and enables it to perform better. “We make available not just the product, but also our knowledge about virtualised environments, thus generating added value,” said Ashworth.
