Dunes Technologies, first company launching management products for virtualization softwares as I remember (please correct me if not so), launched S-Ops 2.0.
Here some interesting new features S-Ops offers:
â€¢ Virtual Machines fail-over with shared storage (NAS or SAN): automatically runs a clone of a virtual machine on another computer in case of virtual machine error detection. Both virtual machines share a single disk file.
â€¢ Virtual Machines fail-over without shared storage: automatically runs a copy of a virtual machine on another computer in case of virtual machine error detection. Each virtual machine runs from separate copies of a disk file.
â€¢ Backup automation: put virtual machines in such mode that it can be backuped (suspend or create redo log), creates a snapshot (if available) and drives the backup software at planned intervals.
â€¢ Workload management: automatically reallocates virtual machines on multiple servers according to workload.
â€¢ Alarm notification: Threshold values and e-mail/pager notifications can be set and users will be automatically notified.
Release 2.0.1 is available immediately for Windows and Linux hosts and supports VMware ESX Server 2 and Workstation 4, Microsoft Virtual Server (beta version) and Virtual PC (beta version). Try it here.
