LinMinTM Bare Metal Provisioning 5.4 adds Turbo-ImagingTM and Hosting, Cloud Data Center Enhancements

  Hosting, Cloud and Corporate Data Center Customers Drive Extensive List of Enhancements


REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - May 20, 2009 -LinMin, maker of award-winning LinMin Bare Metal ProvisioningTM, today unveiled Release 5.4, featuring "Turbo-Imaging," a high-performance disk imaging subsystem for disaster recovery, new operating system media management, updated Linux® and Windows® Server provisioning, extensive logging and numerous other features requested by corporate, cloud and hosting company data center managers.


Turbo-Imaging brings disaster recovery to a new level with automatic file system detection, intelligent compression and other capabilities that make it easy for data center managers to quickly roll systems back to a known-good state in case of software corruption, malicious attack or other failure. Combining server provisioning (remote, unattended operating system installation) and disk imaging in a single product makes LinMin an indispensable solution in deploying, repurposing and recovering the commodity hardware infrastructure layer used in hosting, corporate, cloud and other data center environments.


"We use LinMin extensively in our three hosting data centers for provisioning and imaging our Linux and Windows servers," said Andrew Cartwright, CTO of FiberHosting. "We are now implementing LinMin's application programming interface (API) to enable FiberHosting customers with dedicated servers to control their systems from the bare metal up. This increases customer satisfaction and reduces our own operating expenses."


"The positive feedback we're getting from customers is most gratifying," said Laurent Gharda, CEO and founder of LinMin Corp. "There is no substitute for hosting, cloud and corporate data center staff feedback to drive LinMin's roadmap for solving real world problems. As new vendors and solutions emerge to manage already-deployed physical and virtual systems, the forgotten piece of the data center cost equation remains the labor-intensive deployment, re-purposing and recovery of the hardware layer itself. LinMin helps customers optimize exactly that."
