On May 14, VMTurbo announced the availability of its free product, a Virtual Health Monitor tool, a monitoring and reporting tool which is an evolution of the community edition of its control system for cloud and virtualized data centers, VMTurbo Operations Manager.
VMTurbo’s Virtual Health Monitor would allow monitoring and reporting across vSphere, Hyper-V, XenServer and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, collecting metrics and providing insight to risk and efficiency issues identified across the environment. The solution automates decisions for resource allocation and workload placement in software to ensure applications get the resources required while maximizing utilization of IT assets.
Among the features of VMTurbo Virtual Health Monitor:
- Instant visibility to health and performance
- Unlimited use across virtual data centers of any size
- Free monitoring and reporting for any hypervisor
- Lowest TCO due to innovative product architecture
- Weekly analysis of utilization rates and areas to improve efficiency and reduce risk
Derek Slayton, vice president of marketing at VMTurbo said:
As more organizations expand their use of virtualization to include different hypervisors and more applications being run in VMs, new performance challenges are arising. While this shared resource model improves utilization, it also increases the likelihood for interference and resource contention across workloads and applications, monitoring and reporting are important capabilities to understand health and performance in the environment, and they should be fundamental and free on any hypervisor. Our tool focuses on delivering that in an unlimited fashion across any hypervisor with instant time-to-value – and providing unique insights to risk and efficiency improvements that should be made to our users.
