SolarWinds Releases Virtualization Manager 7.0
Virtualization Manager (VMAN) 7.0 is now available with predictive and alert recommendations. VMAN 7.0 started with the basis to expand on Solarwinds current strengths of Discovery, Alerting, & Reporting and grow our toolset to provide advanced remediation and troubleshooting capabilities to support the *D.A.R.T framework. We tackled this challenge with intelligent actions that remediate existing alerts and predictive recommendations that pro-actively avoid downtime time and performance issue in your virtual infrastructure. Our goal was to stay true to Solarwinds tenants of simplicity and provide a toolset that was designed by systems engineers for systems engineers. I feel confident that we have done that with VMAN 7.0.
- Updated UI Look and Feel – This release updated the SolarWinds Orion Web Console’s user interface, navigation, and notifications.
- Predictive Recommendations – Advanced trending analysis is used to identify workload patterns of your virtual infrastructure to provide strategic recommendations. Based on historical data and trending, recommendations are created for Performance Optimization, Maximum Environment Utilization, and Problem Prevention. Since these recommendations require historical data a minimum of 7 days of data is required.
- Performance Optimization – Recommendations balance the workload of the virtual infrastructure to ensure the best performance is attained. Based on historical trending, VMAN will identify the true work-load patterns, and determine where to place VMs. This ensures that all VMs have the necessary resources and that VMs residing on the same host have compatible workloads.
- Maximum Environment Utilization – The goal of these recommendations is to ensure that the resources in the environment are leveraged to their full capacity with no loss of performance. Essentially, do more with less!!
- Problem Prevention – These recommendations prevent situations where a lack of resources caused by resource depletion would affect the performance of a VM.
