New features make life even easier for virtualized systems administrators and their managers. Includes new applet that summarizes environment and shows how it compares to industry averages.
(PRWEB) January 20, 2010 -- VKernel proudly announces our latest version of Optimization Pack. This new version contains features that make it even easier to manage VM sprawl, re-size VMs to improve performance and increase the number of VMs on existing hardware and reclaim storage wasted on abandoned VMs, templates and snapshots.
Optimization Pack 1.2 includes our new VM Stats applet, which:
-- Provides key summary statistics for your VMware environment
-- Benchmarks your virtualization efficiency against industry averages
-- Highlights savings achievable by correctly sizing VMs and eliminating wasted storage
Additional new features include:
-- Ability to add tags to any and all VMs for better sorting, ownership assignment, reporting, scheduled deletion, etc.;
-- Monetary value of resources that can be recovered by correctly sizing your VMs and eliminating storage waste;
-- Ability to provide all analysis from VMware level 2; and the
-- Addition of a datastore folder in the navigation tree that allows a storage centric view of the environment
“Users love Optimization Pack because we try hard to deliver features that make their lives easier and that they can leverage quickly and painlessly,” said Alex Bakman, VKernel’s CEO, “For instance, this new release has an Update button. Push it and our virtual appliance updates itself in 5 minutes.”
VKernel provides systems administrators and their managers with easy to use, virtual appliance based solutions to improve capacity utilization and optimize their VMware or Microsoft virtualized environments.
