PARIS -- March 25, 2013

Ipanema Technologies – the industry leader in Application Performance
Guarantee for business efficiency – today announced its new virtualization
solution, the virtual|engine. With the virtual|engine, enterprises can deploy
the Ipanema’s Autonomic Networking System (ANS) over their virtual
infrastructure and guarantee the performance of their application portfolio
like ERP, Unified Communications, cloud applications, video, social media,
etc. over their entire corporate network including the Internet.

The benefits of Ipanema’s virtual|engine to enterprises include:

  *Flexible deployment models, including virtualized data centers and branch
    office box;
  *Standardization of the infrastructure platform (hardware and operating
    systems) at the data center and at the branch office;
  *Reduced costs and faster installation times.

“We’ve basically taken all our software features and turned them into a
product that runs on a virtual platform. This enables huge flexibility in
deployment models for our customers and partners” said Mark Burton, Ipanema’s
Product Management Director.

Ipanema is rolling out its virtual|engine as a response to significant market
trends like growing virtualization infrastructure and consolidation of
services in the branch offices.

  *Enterprises are increasingly hosting their applications over a virtualized
    infrastructure. This allows them to decrease their cost while simplifying
    IT operations.
  *There is a drive to move the local services a branch office needs (like
    routing, firewalling, printing, etc.) into one device.

“Enterprises will continue virtualizing their infrastructure and Ipanema’s
virtualization solution responds to this trend. By being able to run the
Ipanema software either on a blade, for example in a branch router, a box
client or on a standard server, enterprises get the flexibility they need in
their deployment models,” said Mark Burton.

The virtual|engine is available in two forms: vip|e 20ax, designed for small
branches (up to 300 users) and vip|e 140ax for larger sites and data centers.
Both models can be used either in-path or out-path and fit on a blade in a
Cisco ISR G2 router.

“In the current release, the virtual|engine runs on VMWare ESXi hypervisor and
we are planning to support other virtualization platforms such as Linux KVM in
the near future” said Mark Burton.
