VMTurbo Adds Application Delivery Controller and Expanded Cloud Integration to Accelerate the Virtualisation of Business Critical Applications and the Build-out of Cloud Services
Market-leading intelligent workload management solution delivers new capabilities to allow customers to manage beyond the virtualisation layer
VMTurbo, the leading provider of intelligent workload management software for cloud and virtualised environments, today announced the release of VMTurbo Operations Manager 3.1. This new release extends product integration to include the application delivery controller (ADC) infrastructure and CloudStack, the open source cloud computing platform. The addition of ADC support in the product automates the control and real-time resource allocation decisions for multi-tiered applications front-ended by acceleration and load balancing appliances. Adding to the product’s existing support for VMware vCloud
Director, the new support for CloudStack provides enterprises and cloud service providers with choice and delivers service assurance and improved utilisation for the rapidly growing cloud infrastructure build-out.
“Many enterprises are struggling to extend the use of virtualisation to their business critical applications; and as a result, they are unable to take advantage of further consolidation savings and increased agility that virtualisation provides in these environments,” said Mark Bowker, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “The ability to ensure service levels
and resource availability across a shared infrastructure is an absolute requirement for IT organisations to virtualise these business critical applications.”
Delivering Intelligent Data Centre Control VMTurbo Operations Manager 3.1 extends its patented Economic Scheduling
Engine (ESE) model beyond the hypervisor infrastructure to the ADC tier – automating management of complex virtualised environments with full visibility to application performance and ensuring service for business critical applications. VMTurbo’s innovative technology provides a fundamentally different method for controlling and managing data centre and cloud infrastructures by employing a market-based approach that allocates resources, manages capacity and ensures application performance based on business priority. By integrating with leading ADC solutions, such as Citrix NetScaler, VMTurbo Operations Manager 3.1 can intelligently prioritise resources and automatically scale up or down across a load-balanced
application farm as demand fluctuates.
“With this release of VMTurbo Operations Manager, we continue to leverage our innovative approach to intelligent, automated data centre management,” said Shmuel Kliger, CTO and founder for VMTurbo. “Because our technology approaches real-time operations and capacity planning by representing the IT environment as a market, we are able to easily consume sources of data like application front-ends, or new cloud architectures; incorporate them in our decision-making platform; and leverage the control points they provide to maintain the environment in an optimal state.”
