The US startup ToutVirtual is slowly trying to reemerge from the oblivion where two years of almost zero progresses put it.
It’s not exactly clear when the product reached version 2.0, but this new 3.0 at least has some interesting features:
- Physical and virtual asset and inventory discovery
- Physical to virtual (P2V) migration analyzer
Perform multiple “what-if” workload placement analysis for virtual machine (VM) density planning
- Virtualization analytics
Host-Host, Host-VM, Host-HostGroup, Inter-VM and Intra-VM resource dependency analysis
- Policy engine for virtualization automation
Supports “crawl-walk-run” automation modes, event-triggered automation, and time-triggered (scheduled) automation
- Role-based access
Stand-alone, Active Directory and OpenLDAP authentications supported
The company also extended the number of supported virtualization platforms: now Oracle VM is side by side with VMware, Citrix, Microsoft and Novell hypervisors.
The virtualization.info Virtualization Industry Roadmap has been updated accordingly.
