Why It's Significant

Leostream's products are designed to help automate the conversion from physical servers to virtualized servers. Its software is installed on a physical server, where it maps and takes a snapshot of all running processes, applications and drivers. It identifies which would be required to run on a virtual server (items which would not require the drivers for the physical server's hard drives, for example) and tells the hypervisor which processes and drivers to assemble and run on a Windows OS on top of a hypervisor. Then it copies the disks from the physical server to the virtual server, verifies the VM is running correctly, and shuts itself down. The company also supports virtualized applications with a product designed to connect end users via terminal server and remote session to applications running on centrally managed virtual servers.
