VMTurbo Operations Manager 3.2 Provides More Control
VMTurbo released the latest version of its Operations Manager onboarding tool for private, public and hybrid cloud environments. The 3.2 version release contains greater intelligence, agility and automation, as well as more holistic and granular controls for distributed multisite operations.
Additionally, Operations Manager 3.2 has added discovery and application-aware management for Java applications and Linux environments, as well as hypervisor support for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0. The addition of Java, Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization hypervisor support will make the tool more useful to a wider variety of customers using different cloud environments.
These changes will give cloud services providers more options for onboarding application workloads for customers, extending their capabilities across additional cloud systems. According to the vendor, the integration of VMTurbo Operations Manager with its Economic Scheduling Engine also will make it easier for providers to plan, deploy and continuously control the virtual environment to keep application performance high while maximizing the use of physical resources.
“With this release of VMTurbo Operations Manager we bring critical cloud control and onboarding capabilities to our platform at a time when cloud infrastructures — both public and private — are becoming mainstream,” said Yuri Rabover, vice president of product strategy and co-founder at VMTurbo, in a prepared statement.
The 3.2 release follows four months after the release of 3.1, which featured integration with CloudStack and features around virtual-to-physical planning.
The promise around this latest release is to make onboarding simpler and more cost-effective. According to the company, the latest release gives more control to the customer or cloud services provider in how they deploy and place new workloads. The end result? If VMTurbo’s calculations are correct, it will reduce costs and improve satisfaction by ensuring applications have access to required resources in shared virtual environments.
Additionally, VMTurbo has built in additional cloud scaling and federation capabilities, as well as new application discovery and cloud support.
