Streaming media and content delivery provider StreamGuys has launched a transparent virtualized platform that delivers an economical path to 100gbps host clusters.

The Bayside, Calif. company said it launched the service to provide a next-generation environment for mission-critical content delivery and multimedia streaming, offering improved redundancy and scalability, enhanced storage and recovery options, increased streaming capacity, advanced monitoring and reporting capabilities and reduced management.
