Application Visibility and Automation of Virtual Infrastructures Just Got Better

November 23, 2010 No Comments

Quest Software, Inc., is again raising the bar in virtualization performance management, monitoring and capacity planning with the release today of its newest version of vFoglight(R). Delivering extended hypervisor support for both VMware ESX and Microsoft Hyper-V, as well as application infrastructure management for Microsoft Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange, vFoglight 6.5 provides increased automation of virtual infrastructures, delivering on the promise of virtualization: simplifying VMware management to increase efficiency to drive lower costs.

“As our infrastructures become increasingly complex and we move critical applications to virtual infrastructures, it was becoming a challenge for us to keep control and understand performance and capacity-related metrics,” said Chadd Warwick, a systems architect with CSS Hosted Systems. “vFoglight answered those critical needs for me. In a single tool, I can manage the virtual layer and get visibility “up the stack” into our infrastructure and applications. It’s much simpler and has been a quick ROI for us.”

Mary Johnston Turner, research director, system management software for IDC, said, “As the number of production applications and workloads running on virtual servers increases, IT teams reach a point where traditional configuration, provisioning, monitoring and optimization tools can’t scale to keep up with the dynamic needs of these environments. Our research indicates that effective virtualized data center operations require more integrated and automated workflows plus real time end-to-end performance visibility to adequately manage these resources. vFoglight 6.5 directly targets these requirements.”

New features and enhancements included in vFoglight 6.5:

Event Remediation — Administrators can view alarms and launch automated resolution workflows to speed mean-time-to-resolution for problems User Perspectives — Designed to provide administrators tailored views for understanding performance monitoring, capacity planning, chargeback, and more Administration — Saves hours of time and improves administration by empowering administrators to perform common VM tasks in the context of daily activities Enhanced FAQts – Provide additional factual information about the dynamic infrastructure, displayed more clearly for administrators and stakeholders

This new release of vFoglight 6.5 leads a suite of virtual infrastructure monitoring solutions that include vFoglight Storage for physical storage monitoring and vFoglight QuickView, a free solution for performance VMware monitoring and management of a single vCenter server.

“Above and beyond other products on the market, vFoglight has been developed to maximize performance, speed problem resolution and ensure capacity across heterogeneous virtual, physical, and cloud infrastructures,” said Carl Eberling, vice president and general manager, Virtualization Management and Monitoring at Quest Software. “The proof is the more than 25,000 customers who use Quest every day to simplify the management of their complex virtual environments.”
