A while ago I wrote an article about VMturbo’s Operations Manager, a solution for virtualization management and datacenter control. VMTurbo offers insight information on how your virtual infrastructure is performing, and lets you prevent problems by pro-actively managing your virtual machines. VMTurbo Operations Manager is available for a wide variety of virtualization & cloud platforms, including VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer and Red Hat KVM.
About two weeks ago VMturbo released version 4.5 of their Operations Manager. This version introduces some new features:
- VMTurbo Fabric Control Module -One of the major advancements in release 4.5 is management of the Converged Fabric layer with Cisco UCS support. Not only does VMTurbo provide unprecedented visibility into UCS from the fabric interconnect down to individual blades, it also enables control of UCS to manage real demand for UCS ports to maximize port utilization and avoid unnecessary port licensing costs.
- VMTurbo Storage Control Module – VMTurbo’s Storage Control Module ensures applications get the storage performance they require to operate reliably while enabling efficient use of storage infrastructure – thus preventing unnecessary over provisioning. This module helps users solve their pressing storage performance and cost challenges, maximize their existing storage investments and embrace the adoption of advanced features and packaging such as NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP (cluster mode) and FlexPod.
