June 11 -- VMTurbo, the leading provider of software-defined control for cloud and virtualized environments, today announced a Hybrid Cloud Extension to its Operations Manager control system. With the extension, VMTurbo’s solution makes recommendations regarding what workload to run where and when to enable ‘cloud bursting’ for enterprises seeking to lower costs and improve service delivery.
“The path to successful cloud computing implementation relies on a hybrid cloud model to meet business demands and requirements, as well as an intelligent management platform that streamlines decision making,” said Mark Bowker, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “With its new hybrid cloud module, VMTurbo Operations Manager enables control within and across mixed cloud environments to ensure increased performance and optimized infrastructure utilization of customers' on-premises infrastructure.”
VMTurbo Operations Manager determines optimal workload placement and resource configuration for private cloud environments based on business constraints and policies to maximize efficiency and performance. With the addition of the Hybrid Cloud Extension, VMTurbo enables workloads to seamlessly span on- and off-premises infrastructure to address peak demands by automatically determining what workloads should run in private or public cloud infrastructure, such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.
“Hybrid clouds are gaining traction within enterprises because of the flexibility, and scalability they provide. We recognized this trend and developed a solution that effectively takes advantage of the on-demand resources available in a hybrid cloud,” said N. Louis Shipley, President and Chief Executive Officer at VMTurbo. “Our enhanced solution drastically cuts the time IT administrators spend worrying about capacity and performance. With the Hybrid Cloud Extension, VMTurbo takes the guesswork out of planning for hybrid clouds and managing how workloads span the hybrid cloud to drive the most value for the enterprise.”
Operations Manager 4.0 is generally available today and pricing starts at $699 per physical CPU socket. The Hybrid Cloud Extension is available to current VMTurbo customers in its Early Access program.
VMTurbo delivers a Software-Defined Control platform for cloud and virtualized environments. The company’s proprietary solutions, including VMTurbo Operations Manager, utilize its Economic Scheduling Engine to dynamically adjust configuration, resource allocation and workload placement to meet service levels and business goals. It is the only technology on the market capable of closing the loop in IT operation by automating the decision-making process to maintain the environment in the desired state. The VMTurbo platform first launched in August 2010 and since that time more than 9,000 cloud service providers and enterprises worldwide have deployed the platform, including British Telecom, Colgate, CSC and the London School of Economics. Using VMTurbo, our customers ensure that applications get the resources they need to operate reliably, while utilizing infrastructure and human resources in the most efficient way.
