VMTurbo has announced the new release of Operarion Manager, now in v4.0 with new foundational features and a modular approach to controlling all layers of the virtualized data center via extensions.

Operations Manager already can find how your resouces are used and improve their utilization, for example there is an interesting whitepaper on how you can reduce your infrastructure costs in a VMWare vCloud Director infrastructure.

This tool provide a smarter way to control your cloud and virtualized environments, and now with the new editions and the modular approach it adds new interesting features.

There where the Enerprise edition (that already support more hypervisors, included RHEV, Xenserver, vSphere and Hyper-V) and the Cloud edition (that support OpenStack and vCloud). Now those editions could be extended with new features focused on different aspects:


  • Application Extension
  • Storage Extension
    • New module connects storage decision-making with workload resource allocation
    • Solves for performance degradation caused by storage congestion
  • Converged Fabric Extension
  • Hybrid Cloud Extension
    • Enables on-demand bursting from private to public IaaS
    • Support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure
    • Enables “cloud bursting” for enterprises seeking to lower costs and improve SLAs

Also it will provide some interesting features:

  • Enhanced policies
  • Customized views and reporting
  • Workload Health View

Note that VMTurbo also joins NetApp Technology Allinace program, considering that it will support (with the Storage extension) this storage family (NetApp arrays using Data ONTAP APIs for 7.33 & above, and 8.x) and, considering the support of Cisco UCS in the Converged Fabric, also the FlexPod stack. In the future there will be also other storage extensions, probably some EMC products, like the VNX family.

To learn more you can read the press release and also there will be, on June 18 at 12:00PM (EDT), a dedicated webinar: Introducing VMTurbo Operations Manager 4.0.
