HotLink has released version 2.0 of its multi virtualization platform management tool SuperVISOR. This version is the follow up of version 1.5 which was released in April last year. SuperVISOR is software which abstracts the virtualization platform from the management tools used to manage them. By using this technology it is possible to manage a hybrid hypervisor environment using a single management tool solution running within VMware vCenter. SuperVISOR is able to manage Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer and Red Hat Enterprise Linux KVM.
When HotLink announced its product for the first time, it also mentioned that it would supply a plugin for Microsoft’s System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM). Since Microsoft’s latest version of SCVMM now already supports multiple virtualization solutions, apparently HotLink decided to stop the efforts to offer a solution for SCVMM.
Version 2.0 provides the following new features:
- Support for vCloud Director and PowerCLI
- Support for Amazon EC2
- Support for vCenter 5.1 and Microsoft Hyper-V 3.0
HotLink is now also available in a free edition, supporting three hosts and fifteen VM’s.
