Dell (News - Alert) Software has rolled out the next generation of its virtualization operations management suite, which comprises of three different solutions designed to help businesses of all sizes reorganize virtualization, storage and cloud computing initiatives.
The new editions packed include Foglight for Virtualization, enterprise and standard editions 7.0 and Foglight for Storage Management 3.0, and are ideal for solving number of data center transformation difficulties.
The newly released Foglight for Virtualization, enterprise edition 7.0 is a perfect fit for end-to-end performance monitoring and operations management for heterogeneous virtual environments. The solution, which is currently available at $799 per physical socket in managed servers, promises to cut on operational costs, speed deployments and simplify the complexity of the data center virtual and physical infrastructure.
Foglight for Virtualization, standard edition 7.0 is explicitly intended for the small-to-medium size environment with an emphasis on ease of use and quick time to value. This edition is priced at $399 per physical socket in managed servers.
The newly released Foglight for Storage Management 3.0 is designed to enable virtualization managers to get a clear picture about the underlying physical storage infrastructure found beneath the virtual data stores, enabling them to immediately identify hosts, VMs and datastores experiencing performance problems caused by underlying physical host, fabric and storage components and tips to fix the issues. This edition is priced at $499 per socket.
"As infrastructure and operations professionals are faced with increased expectations to deliver business value, they are expected to not only reduce the total cost of the data center, but also drive agility, quickly deploy new applications, and deliver the highest level of performance,” said John Maxwell, executive director, product management at Dell Software, in a statement. This 'deliver more with less' conundrum is about having the ability to quickly and agilely scale the capacity of the data center up or down as business requirements change at the lowest possible cost. Dell Software's virtualization operations management suite helps simplify the complexity of today's modern data centers to help I&O professionals deliver on these top priorities, resolve problems before they affect business-critical applications, and ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction."
All the editions are currently available for download from the Dell Software website and are expected to be generally available on August 31.
