The security vendor Tripwire continues to shift its focus on virtualization.
So far the company extended its support to virtual infrastructures (only VMware ones at the moment), released a free configuration checker for VMware ESX, and hired the popular expert Stephen Beaver as virtualization evangelist.
Today Tripwire moves another step towards VMware and release a second free tool called OpsCheck.
OpsCheck, which supports ESX 3.0/3.5 (including ESXi version), connects to VMware vCenter through a secure channel and verifies if VMotion is properly configured and operational by checking virtual machines device configurations, data stores, and networks.
The product is available as a Java application running on any Windows Server 2003 box with JRE 1.5 or later.
