Linux Based Virtual Machines Now Covered With vOptimizer Pro

VizionCore : 15 July, 2010  (New Product)
Storage optimisation application for virtual platforms gains extension to new environments including Linux virtual machines
Vizioncore has announced the availability of a new version of vOptimizer Pro. This storage optimization solution provides broader platform support for virtual machine (VM) storage reclamation and optimization operations, which enables customers to experience greater benefits and additional value from their virtual infrastructure. Additional enhancements include support for both Linux-based and VMware Thin Provisioned VMs.

"Our research shows that backup and storage challenges are the top two pain points experienced during virtualization implementation," said Barb Goldworm, founder and president of Focus. "Optimizing storage across the virtual infrastructure is a critical success factor in expanding virtualization beyond initial server consolidation. Maintaining a balance, which allocates enough space without over-allocating and wasting storage can offer huge cost savings. In addition, features like optimizing for 64k partition alignment can reduce latency and improve performance. Vizioncore's vOptimizer Pro can help automate the management and optimization of VM storage and right-size to save money, reduce TCO and improve ROI."

Since its launch in early 2009, the vOptimizer Pro solution has helped system administrators quickly and easily reclaim over-allocated (wasted) virtual storage, right-size VM storage and optimize VM I/O performance. Organizations with large virtual infrastructures usually experience severe VM storage waste problems and costly storage acquisitions on a regular basis. Many of these organizations do not realize just how much storage they are wasting and what the actual savings would be if they could free it up for use by other applications.

'We've improved vOptimizer Pro to support Linux-based VMs, which means customers can find and reclaim over-allocated storage and perform 64K partition alignments for heterogeneous VMs within their virtual infrastructure," said Steve Stover, senior director, product management, Vizioncore. "Additionally, by supporting VMware Thin Provisioned VMs, the new version of vOptimizer Pro reduces the size of thin provisioned VMs by reclaiming deleted data spaces for better management of VM storage costs and improved performance.'

vOptimizer Pro Benefits:

* Gain visibility of the total amount and value of over-allocated virtual storage
* Reclaim wasted VM storage (shrink Virtual Machine Disks or VMDKs) for use by other applications and business units
* Automate resizing of VMs 'up' or 'down' to alleviate administration time
* Prevent VM outages due to storage shortages
* Significantly improve VM I/O performance by performing 64K partition-block alignments

The latest version of vOptimizer Pro is generally available and priced at $299 (USD) per socket.
