Vizioncore’s vFoglight 6.0 Comes To Market & Is VM Management Tool Sprawl an Issue?

Submitted by on November 20, 2009 – 11:36 amNo Comment

On 12/16 Vizioncore, announced the availability of vFoglight 6.0 which competes in the small to medium markets with the likes of Veeam, vKernel and others.

Akorri , Quest Software and others are fighting it out a bit upstream. I know customers that use a combination of these tools to leverage the best features of a certain tool. For example one VM mgmt tool might be deployed for ease of use and quick snapshot reporting, one may be used to monitor complex VM and application interactions with storage, another tool to monitor IP traffic.

Of course the downside is that eventually VM management tool sprawl creeps in and the client needs to manage the management tools. This should be an area of interest to ISVs and integrators – giving the client a single pane of glass with different reports and alerts, etc for based on the specific users needs. SharePoint may help in this area or Xangati’s Application Management solution may be a fit ?

vFoglight 6.0 provides a virtualization management solution that enables administrators to better understand the complex relationships and interactions among all the components within a virtual infrastructure.

With vFoglight 6.0, Vizioncore has simplified the process for small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) wanting to effectively manage their virtual infrastructures by providing clarity and expertise to performance and availability issues through architectural representations and relationships. Virtualization management has
become critical to the success of virtual infrastructure performance.
