Hosting provider, Bulletproof Networks, has launched a virtualised infrastructure sharing service. Known as Joint Infrastructure Virtualisation Enhancement, it allows a customer's computer requirements to be serviced by an array of platforms that optimise device processing power.
Director of sales and marketing, Lorenzo Modesto, said it used any spare processing power that a company had and ran over a wireless network.
"It is suitable for any company that doesn't mind a bit of downtime for the initial migration. For example, a company's website can be hosted on traditional servers but then if there is spare capacity it could be spread across anything from MP3 players to an Xbox," he said. "It will be offered as an extension piece of a virtualised hosting package."
Bulletproof is offering a Skeet migration service that breaks up, migrates and distributes running applications from physical servers to other devices.
It was expected to generate uptake in markets that have low installed server power such as manufacturing, sales, packaging, and warehousing, Modesto said.
