MAHWAH, N.J., June 9 -- ManageIQ, the emerging leader in the management and automation of virtualized environments, today announced Version 2.0 of its Enterprise Virtualization Management (EVM) Suite. The EVM suite, powered by ManageIQ's patent-pending SmartState technology, provides the essential insight, control and automation enterprises need to maintain the manageability, reliability and security of their virtual infrastructures. Version 2.0 expands EVM's policy-based virtual configuration management capabilities, and provides enterprises with significant new features supporting advanced virtualization deployments.
"Virtual configuration management is fundamentally different, and problems like VM sprawl and management of offline virtual machines are just the tip of the iceberg," said Joseph Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of ManageIQ. He added, "Enterprises strategically leveraging virtualized infrastructures to enhance IT agility, availability, and efficiency are facing major configuration management challenges that simply didn't exist in the pre-virtual world. Configuration and operational activities are more dynamic, distributed and complex with self-service provisioning and delegated administration. The unique real-time visibility into virtual environments and the continuous policy-based control EVM provides are essential."
"Configuration management is the foundation for almost every other management discipline. If you don't do it correctly, you set yourself up for failure -- it's an exposure for security, high availability, and reliability," said Ronni Colville, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner. She added, "Virtualization dramatically impacts configuration management, changing how systems are built, updated, and managed. Solutions that provide policy-based automation of configuration management processes for virtual servers can deliver considerable IT savings that are not possible with labor intensive, task-based systems."
The EVM suite was designed and built to support the unique demands of virtual management and automation. EVM Suite Version 2.0 contains significant enhancements based on feedback from enterprises strategically leveraging virtualization technology. The suite currently includes EVM Insight and EVM Control.
EVM Insight -- Delivers real-time visibility with continuous, agent-free discovery and tracking of configuration information, configuration drift, genealogy, and relationship mapping. Enhancements to EVM Insight include:
EVM Control provides real-time, policy-based management, security, and compliance capabilities for virtualized environments. Policy-based automation at key operations, configuration and life cycle points enforce IT standards, improve reliability and availability, and reduce risk. Enhancements to EVM Control include:
EVM Insight and EVM Control will be generally available in July 2008.
