As companies broaden their use of virtualization and adopt cloud services, the management approach must also change to solve new challenges and take advantage of the increased fluidity. VMTurbo, a company that has been delivering an Intelligent Workload Management solution for cloud and enterprise virtualization environments, is enabling a new approach with its all new 3.3 version of VMTurbo Operations Manager.
The new version is noted to expand on the company’s charter to transform IT operations from a complex, labor intensive and volatile process to one that is simple, automated and predictable delivering greater control in maintaining a healthy state and consistent service delivery.
The latest version of VMTurbo Operations Manager comes with new features that enable intelligent automation across heterogeneous hypervisor and cloud platforms; integrate analytics for planning, deploying and operating virtual data centers; and simplify control for IT operators.
The 3.3 release now supports VMware vCloud Suite 5.1, Microsoft Hyper-V 2012, and Red Hat (News - Alert) Enterprise Virtualization 3.1, along with CloudStack and Citrix XenServer. Moreover, the 3.3 release leverages the same intelligence for all phases of operations, reducing operational costs and improving utilization. In this version, a cluster projection dashboard enhances planning capabilities by providing greater accuracy in understanding the workload demand trending with cluster projections. This further improves predictability and planning recommendations.
The 3.3 release enables users to flexibly manage business constraints by specifying exception handling for automated actions.
“VMTurbo delivers simplicity in every aspect of product design and deployment—from its simple virtual appliance delivery to its streamlined user interface to its hands-free automated control of the virtual infrastructure,” Yuri Rabover, vice president of product strategy and co-founder at VMTurbo said in a statement.
Rabover also emphasized that VMTurbo Operations Manager employs a layer of abstraction across the environment through which analytics can be run to prescribe actions based on business rules and system interdependencies, which eventually simplifies IT operations and delivers software-defined control for the software-defined data center.
The company claims that its customers are experiencing tremendous efficiency gains by reducing time spent troubleshooting and maximizing infrastructure utilization via its Operations Manager.
VMTurbo Operations Manager is made available for a price of approximately 498 US dollars per physical host socket.
In another release, VMTurbo announced that it has been named to Forbes' annual list of America's Most Promising Companies.
