Bloombase Joins Open Virtualization Alliance

September 28, 2011 - Bloombase Technologies, one of the leading global information security companies from the desktop through the datacenter and to the cloud, today announced its continued commitment to promote the development of next-generation cloud secure computing technologies. As part of its commitment, Bloombase is pleased to announce that it has joined the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA).

"Joining the Open Virtualization Alliance demonstrates our unwavering supporting for the open source community, and our commitment to provide the most cost-effective data at-rest security solutions for virtualized data centers and cloud applications," said Kevin Chew, VP Product Marketing at Bloombase Technologies. "We believe the joint collaboration will bring on a new era of innovative technological advances and best practices that will enable the most manageable and efficient anti-data-leak solutions to complex information regulatory compliance requirement issues faced by our customers."

The Open Virtualization Alliance is a consortium dedicated to fostering the adoption of Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) as an open virtualization alternative, accelerating the emergence of an ecosystem of third-party solutions around KVM, increasing overall awareness and understanding of KVM, encouraging interoperability, promoting best practices and highlighting examples of customer successes.

“We are very pleased to welcome Bloombase Technologies into the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA),” said Scott Crenshaw, vice president and general manager, Cloud Business Unit at Red Hat and a founding member of the Open Virtualization Alliance. “The support for the Open Virtualization Alliance from industry leaders and innovators shows the widespread interest in KVM as an open virtualization alternative. KVM delivers leading performance, scalability and security, making it a compelling alternative to proprietary virtualization technologies.”

Bloombase Spitfire Security Systems enable transformative data privacy and operational efficiency over and above what was previously achievable only with drastic application changes requiring tremendous second development efforts at hosts and applications that are costly and risky. With Bloombase Spitfire transparent data security solutions, even the most complex and throughput demanding data services will benefit from the privacy and integrity assurance capabilities for data availability, security and scalability. Bloombase empowers KVM customers to securely encrypt virtual storage systems that is hardly achievable by traditional Fiber Channel Storage Area Network (SAN) encrypting hardware, enabling transition from physical to virtual data center infrastructure without having the tradeoff between virtualization and security compliance.
