The recently announced startup DynamicOps, founded (and funded) by Credit Suisse, today unveils some of the features of its first product: Virtual Resource Manager (VRM).
As virtualization.info reported in May, VRM is a VM lifecycle management solution which plans to support the hypervisors from VMware (ESX), Citrix (XenServer), Microsoft (Hyper-V) and Sun (xVM Server).
Today DynamicOps formally launches VRM and unveils that the product will offer self-service provisioning capabilities, resources tracking (including abandoned virtual machines) and chargeback, and policy compliancy enforcement.
Additionally, VRM has an extensible architecture built on Windows Workflow Foundation which will allow 3rd party vendors to plug on the master workflow that the product follows.
VMR 1.0 will be available in July 2008 starting at $99 per virtual machine.
The virtualization.info Virtualization Industry Roadmap has been updated accordingly.
