Virtual Instruments has moved beyond its storage focus, enhancing VirtualWisdom to support Microsoft Hyper-V servers and VMware workloads.
With the latest upgrade of its VirtualWisdom performance managementsuite, Virtual Instruments broadened its platform support, providing storage and application teams a better way to collaborate.
VirtualWisdom 4.3 supports Microsoft Hyper-V and includes an analytics tool to more efficiently balance VMware workloads among virtual machines (VMs).
Virtual Instruments is also working on new hardware probes for Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and network-attached storage (NAS) environments. Those performance probes are in beta.
VirtualWisdom gathers hundreds of performance metrics from virtual servers, networking and storage probes for data collection, analytics and correlation. New capabilities include VM Coordinator for vSphere, which provides deep performance metrics and historical analysis of storage, and VMware ESX servers to help better distribute workloads across VMs. It can analyze resources and predict performance effects on the infrastructure when workloads are rebalanced.
