Virtual Iron to launch virtualization appliances (not virtual appliances)

Quoting from the Virtual Iron official announcement:

Virtual Iron Software, a provider of enterprise-class server virtualization and virtual infrastructure management software, today announced that it has joined the Intel Enabled Server Acceleration Alliance (ESAA). As a member of ESAA, Virtual Iron will certify its virtualization and management solution on Intel-based server platforms.

In conjunction with its participation in ESAA, Virtual Iron has also signed an OEM agreement with Arrow Electronics, Inc., a global provider of products, services and solutions to industrial and commercial users of electronic components and computer products. As part of the agreement, Arrow North American Components, a business unit of Arrow Electronics, will offer an integrated, Intel-based “appliance” with Virtual Iron’s software pre-installed on its white box servers. These appliances will be based on Virtual Iron’s ESAA solution recipes.
