In episode 60, Douglas Brown interviews George Pradel, the Director of Strategic Alliances at Vizioncore, Inc. In this podcast Doug and George will discuss Vizioncore’s virtualization backup, disaster recovery, server consolidation, and performance monitoring solutions for VMware environments. Doug and George will also discuss how Vizioncore’s solutions work, what it takes to deploy / maintain them, and what problems they solve.
Virtualization Backup – vRanger Pro vRanger Pro is the recognized industry-standard backup and restore solution for virtualized environments. Administrators can schedule regular image-level backups of virtual or physical machines — while the machine is still running. Images can be stored either locally in the SAN or sent as compressed files over a WAN to remote locations to support disaster recovery strategies. vRanger Pro also enables restore of individual files efficiently with an explorer tree through which users can easily identify and “grab” needed files.
Performance Monitoring – vFogligt
Vizioncore’s vFoglight is a virtualization monitoring and management solution designed to help organizations understand their virtual infrastructure by managing the relationships and interaction between all the components in the virtual environment, including data centers, data stores, clusters, resource pools, ESX servers and virtual machines. vFoglight goes beyond virtual server monitoring with the ability to gain visibility into the critical applications. Starting with the most frequently virtualized applications like SQL Server, Active Directory and Exchange, vFoglight correlates the events occurring in the virtual infrastructure with the application environment to help IT reduce the mean-time-to-resolution for incidents and problems. vFoglight provides simple means for administrators to visualize the workload impact of moving a virtual image from one physical server to another one. vFoglight helps users prevent unwanted downtime and assists in optimizing resource allocation among VMs – a major consideration for companies deploying large-scale virtualization implementations.
