Don't have time to tell you all about it right now, but we did announce our Virtualization Planning Tool this morning! The VPT enables you to analyze years of data on the physical servers, plan for how to consolidate them into virtual servers, and model their performance. I am selling it short, but I have to run to another meeting. You should read the PR here.
This completes our life cycle offering because we have been doing the monitoring and management since 2004.
How low long has your management vendor been doing VMware monitoring, modeling and management???
Oh, and can they look inside the guest OS for root-cause analysis? Can you provide the single pane of glass view of multiple Virtual Centers?
We have customers managing over 6000 guests across multiple Virtual Centers with our product suite. Check us out at Booth 853 at VMworld!!!
