- Increases VM density and reduces cost per VM
- Provides simple ‘click button’ right-sizing
- Inventory – automatically collects important information about all VMs in the virtual infrastructure and creates a dynamic, detailed, and searchable inventory report showing VM name, created by and when, resource allocations, and much more.
- Monitors VM deployment by source to manage sprawl
- Finds unnecessary VMs to free up needed resources
- Generates management, compliance, and resource justification reports
- Auto synchronizes with VMware vCenter and is completely VMotion, DRS, and HA aware
