VMTurbo Releases a Planner Tool to Simplify and Optimize Plans for Virtual Infrastructures Growth and Changes

VMTurbo, a virtualization management technology leader, announced today the general availability of a new product, the VMTurbo Planner.

VMTurbo Planner is a tool for virtualization administrators to simplify and optimize plans for growth and changes in virtual infrastructures. Virtualization administrators face difficult challenges in managing this rapid growth and changes, such as:

  • Where should new VMs be deployed?
  • How would this workload growth impact the performance of existing VMs?
  • How much additional capacity (e.g., of CPU/Memory/Storage resources) is needed?
  • How can available capacity be efficiently utilized to avoid resource waste?

The VMTurbo Planner helps administrators best resolve these by:

  • Analyzing the growth and change requirements of their virtual infrastructure
  • Generating flexible "what if" planning scenarios and evaluate plan options
  • Computing a plan that optimizes performance and assures utilization targets
  • Generating a list of orderly actions to implement the plan

An integral Planning Wizard greatly simplifies the planning process, and improves its results, by guiding users through these activities.

VMTurbo Planner and the concurrently released VMTurbo Watchdog join the previously released VMTurbo Monitor (free) and the VMTurbo Host Reporter to extend the VMTurbo Integrated Virtualization Management Suite. The entire Suite runs within a single virtual appliance using a common patent pending analytics platform and deploys in just minutes.

"Customers are rapidly deploying new workloads and adding new hardware resources to their virtual infrastructures, and this high rate of change often results in performance problems and resource waste. VMTurbo Planner simplifies the process of managing virtual infrastructure growth and change. It assures optimal use of resources and the performance of business critical virtualized applications. " said Dr. Shmuel Kliger, co-founder, president and CEO of VMTurbo. "VMTurbo Planner joins the VMTurbo Host Reporter in our Analyzer product line, which helps administrators evaluate and track their systems through the past, present and future to assure that they can meet their performance and utilization goals."

"Business constituents demand that IT provide them with visibility and assurance of performance in return for allowing their applications to run in the shared virtual infrastructure," said Bernd Harzog Performance and Capacity Management Analyst for The Virtualization Practice. "A new set of issues arises when virtualizing a broad set of business critical applications. To achieve operational savings, management tools will have to be reinvented and re-implemented around virtualization based processes and tools. VMTurbo’s Virtualization Management products provide IT with a way to answer business stakeholders’ need for better information about the application environment, and helps IT system administrators tackle performance management concerns."

VMTurbo Planner includes the free VMTurbo Monitor, and is available immediately for $30/socket. Visit www.vmturbo.com/products/vmturbo-planner/ for more information and to download a free 30 days trial license.
