LOS ALTOS, Calif. -- July 9, 2013

CloudVolumes, the Instant Workload Management (IWM) solutions for virtualized
servers, desktops and cloud, including integration with VMware vCloud and
Citrix XenDesktop, today announced its “Virtual-State” solution to complement
the latest release of Dell Wyse WSM, a desktop and application virtualization
software. Through the Dell Technology Partner Program, CloudVolumes will
deliver virtualized server applications onto Dell Wyse WSM-streamed servers.

“We are excited to offer the latest release of the Dell Wyse WSM software to
customers, as it adds a new server streaming capability to help organizations
harness the benefits of virtualization through their physical servers,” said
Param Desai, Director of Product Management at Dell Cloud Client Computing.
“The partnership with CloudVolumes allows us to give users the capability of
changing identity and nature of a server instantly, which will provide agility
in server management.”

The CloudVolumes solution helps bridge the virtualization gap by managing both
physical and virtual servers in a new and more efficient way. Dynamic
deployment of workloads, including applications, services, data and settings,
as well as in-place updating and patching of server applications can now be
seamlessly and instantly applied to running servers. By applying a
“virtual-state” to servers, CloudVolumes enables them to dynamically change
their roles within seconds - no longer do servers need to be dedicated to a
single static task. When used with shared storage, CloudVolumes can
significantly save on the storage required, as hundreds or even thousands of
servers can share a single workload or application.

“The ability to treat a physical server as though it has been virtualized and
create non-persistent physical servers is a new capability that has the
potential to unlock several benefits for IT,” said JP Gagne, president at
Baremetalcloud. “CloudVolumes is now providing the benefits of virtualization
without the costs associated with it. We have gone through a very successful
beta testing period and are looking forward to our continued engagement with
CloudVolumes.”

By virtualizing everything above the OS, CloudVolumes enables these servers to
be managed seamlessly and deliver applications onto servers, while continuing
to operate current workloads. Enterprises can now be responsive to increase or
decrease in demands, without undertaking the costs associated with
virtualization. Further, the CloudVolumes solution requires no changes to
existing infrastructure, hypervisor, application, licensing or policy. It
supports all Windows desktop and server apps, including those that have been
custom developed.

“We are breaking new ground in the world of servers by providing capabilities
that were only previously available when they were virtualized. CloudVolumes
reduces management complexity by injecting a “virtual state” into any server,
giving IT the ability to manage both physical and virtual servers in the same
way and change their roles on demand,” said Raj Parekh, president and CEO at
CloudVolumes. “Our partnership with Dell further validates our solution and
the benefits that it can bring to the enterprise. We are excited about Dell
Wyse WSM’s latest release and the benefits it brings our joint customers.”

Product Availability

CloudVolumes solution will be included in the Dell Wyse WSM 6 release,
available globally on July 22, 2013 through Dell channel partners. For more
