Today, September 18, VMTurbo, the company producer of a virtualization management platform announced the release of VMTurbo Operations Manager 3.2
VMTurbo, founded in 2008 with headquarter in New York and backed by Bain Capital Ventures and Highland Capital Partners, recently joined the OpenStack community, one of its products, the VMTurbo Enterprise Operations Manager is a solution for Cloud and virtualized environment. VMTurbo Enterprise Operations Manager allows a real-time optimization and capacity planning for single-site data centers with the main focus of minimizing interference across the data center while expanding resource utilization.
New features in VMTurbo Operations Manager 3.2 include:
- Intelligent Workload Onboarding: The new release enables deployment of new application workloads based on custom or pre-defined templates to cloud environments. This feature supports typical deployment use cases and integrates with third-party provisioning solutions. Onboarding and placement decisions are driven by the same Economic Scheduling Engine that intelligently controls resource allocations based on deep analytics that take into account constraints which restrict where workloads can run in the cloud infrastructure. By removing the guesswork and assumptions regarding resource availability, VMTurbo Operations Manager delivers greater efficiency, accuracy and speed versus alternative onboarding processes.
- Cloud Scalability and Federation: VMTurbo expands scalability and management views by federating data and services for distributed VMTurbo Operations Manager instances in cloud-scale environments. This allows for “single pane of glass” management as well as segmenting multiple levels of management granularity. Service providers and multi-site enterprises can distribute Operations Manager by groups (locations, operations management teams) and aggregate data and services at any level, providing greater flexibility in viewing, controlling, planning and reporting.
- New Application Discovery and Cloud Platform Support: Adding to existing application-centric features, this release extends Operations Manager capabilities for Java applications using Java Management Extensions (JMX), and SNMP-enabled environments, including Linux, IBM AIX, and non-WMI-enabled Windows. By doing so, the product streamlines discovery and delivers greater visibility regarding application behavior to derive resource allocation decisions that meet application QoS needs. VMTurbo Operations Manager now also supports RHEV 3.0, extending VMTurbo Operations Manager’s capabilities to include RHEV, XenServer, Hyper-V, CloudStack, or vSphere virtual environments – all from a single, integrated virtual appliance.
Yuri Rabover, vice president of product strategy and co-founder at VMTurbo claims:
With this release of VMTurbo Operations Manager we bring critical cloud control and onboarding capabilities to our platform at a time when cloud infrastructures—both public and private—are becoming mainstream, utilizing the same intelligence for how you onboard, deploy and place new workloads as for how you control the virtual environment leads to smooth and predictable service delivery. It reduces operation costs and improves customer satisfaction by ensuring applications have the resources they require in a shared environment while maximizing utilization – which yields a better economic return for cloud providers.
