The US startup VKernel, focused on performance monitor and chargeback, has just launched the first beta of a free tool called SearchMyVM.
The product will index over 75 attributes for any supported virtual infrastructure (VMware only at the moment), including virtual machines, hosts, clusters, storage, resource pools, snapshots and more.
Customers will be able to search for any of them through a minimal interface that mimics Google.
For large-scale deployments administrators the product is definitively interesting and, on paper, may disturb the work of another startup, Hyper9 (formerly InovaWave), that is developing something similar.
Enroll for the beta program here.
