VMTurbo has revealed VMTurbo Operations Manager 3.2. This new release addresses the growing demand for greater intelligence, agility and automation in onboarding application workloads to private, public and hybrid clouds, as well as providing holistic and granular control for distributed multi-site operations. The release also extends discovery and application-aware management to Java applications and Linux environments, and adds hypervisor support for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) 3.0.
“IT organizations are moving beyond simple virtual machine provisioning. Our clients are now considering how to orchestrate the delivery of multi-tier applications and assure committed service levels,” said Alessandro Perilli, research director at Gartner. “Automated infrastructure optimization, through dynamic resource allocation and intelligent workload placement, is critical to enable service assurance and scale operations in large private or public cloud environments”.
Virtualization professionals and cloud service providers are onboarding new application workloads daily. While many solutions facilitate planning and deployment using templates and orchestrating virtual machine provisioning, the reality is that these options lack a full understanding of the current availability of physical resources in the continuously changing cloud and virtual data centers into which these applications will be placed. By integrating intelligent onboarding with VMTurbo’s Economic Scheduling Engine, VMTurbo Operations Manager closes the loop in planning, deploying, and continuously controlling the virtual environment to assure application performance while maximizing utilization of physical resources.
“Layered Tech delivers mission-critical cloud services for demanding ebusiness applications, so Quality of Service is a top priority for us—and our customers. VMTurbo Operations Manager assures resource availability—even as possible contention increases—for the applications in our Cloud,” stated Kevin Van Mondfrans, VP Product Management at Layered Tech. “We stake our reputation on our service commitment to our customers, and VMTurbo helps us ensure successful cloud operations.”
