Release: CiRBA Data Center Intelligence 4.6

After securing $12 million in a second round of investments, the Canadian company CiRBA is back with a minor update of its capacity planning tool Data Center Intelligence (DCI).

Despite the number assignment DCI 4.6 has some major new features like:

  • Selective workload analysis
    The product is able to analyze multiple workloads running on the same server through the most relevant benchmarking systems. This improves the overall capability to recognize good candidates for P2V migrations
  • Performance impact analysis
    The product is able to calculate the risk of negatively affecting application performance after the server consolidation
  • iSCSI impact analysis
    The product is able to calculate the impact of iSCSI protocol on the physical CPUs in those virtualization hosts not using TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) NICs
  • Network Latency Analysis
    The product now tracks the network latency on the physical environment and compares it with the one expected in the virtualization host

The Virtualization Industry Roadmap has been updated accordingly.
