VMTurbo announced latest release of Operations Manager 5.1 introducing some improvements and enhancement.
The new release is already GA and remarks the mission to assure application performance while maximizing efficiency of the underlying infrastructure.
Improved the performance of Operations Manager in terms of speed and scale across larger footprints with one instance.
Now one or more SQL queries can be included in a custom dashboard, increasing the capabilities of dashboards and custom reports.
Released the Software Development Kit (SDK) to build hooks into components not currently supported.
Application Control Module
Customers can now auto-scale in order to meet run-time application demand with real-time infrastructure supply.
Extended coverage and control into Java application servers including IBM WebSphere, Oracle WebLogic, Red Hat JBoss and Apache Tomcat.
It’s now possible to define quality of service targets and get out-of-the-box scaling recommendations to clone or reconfigure instances.
Storage Control Module
Expanded coverage of storage platforms to include HP 3PAR StoreServ and Pure Storage FlashArray.
VMTurbo offers support for EMC VNX, NetApp, HP 3PAR, Pure Storage and converged infrastructure including Vblock and FelxPod.
OpenStack and Private Clouds
Enhanced control of workloads in an OpenStack environment.
Introduced the dimension of time. Users can now predict the infrastructure resources they will need into the future, taking into account:
- Reserved VMs that will be deployed during the project period
- Specific hardware and workloads changes
- Changes in placement policies or other plan modifications
For pending reservations, Operations Manager continuously attempts to place workloads.
If a reservation is done and not enough resources are available to place the workloads, Operations Manager regularly checks to see whether capacity has changed.
To test VMTurbo Operations Manager a free 30-day trial is available to download.
