“IT organizations are moving beyond simple virtual machine provisioning,” Alessandro Perilli, research director at Gartner, said in a statement. “Our clients are now considering how to orchestrate the delivery of multi-tier applications and assure committed service levels. Automated infrastructure optimization, through dynamic resource allocation and intelligent workload placement, is critical to enable service assurance and scale operations in large private or public cloud environments.”
While many existing products facilitate planning and deployment of applications using templates and orchestrating virtual machine provisioning, VMTurbo says, they lack a full understanding of the current availability of physical resources in the continuously changing cloud and virtual data centers into which applications will be placed.
By integrating intelligent onboarding with VMTurbo’s Economic Scheduling Engine, VMTurbo Operations Manager helps organizations in planning, deploying and continuously controlling virtual environments to assure application performance while maximizing the use of physical resources.
Capabilities of VMTurbo Operations Manager 3.2 include intelligent workload onboarding, which enables the deployment of new application workloads based on custom or pre-defined templates to cloud environments; cloud scalability and federation; and new application discovery and cloud platform support, such as support for Java applications using Java Management Extensions (JMX), and SNMP-enabled environments.
