New Virtualization Connectors Introduced For Microsoft and Citrix
San Mateo, Calif. – April 16, 2014 – Nlyte Software, the world’s leading software company focused on the management and optimization of data centers, today has expanded its management of the virtualized data center with the introduction of connectors for Microsoft’s Hyper-V and Citrix’s XenServer virtualization platforms. In addition to its popular Nlyte Virtualization Connector for VMware vCenter Server, the family of connectors now completes Nlyte’s ability to interact with all major virtualization deployments found worldwide. These out-of-the-box connectors allow Nlyte customers to coordinate their visibility of the logical and virtualized resources with their view of the underlying physical infrastructure.
“The most successful DCIM implementations are those that tightly integrate with existing ITSM components found within and supporting those same datacenters in real time,” said Jennifer Koppy, Research Manager for IDC. “Nlyte recognizes the critical need to support all virtualization platforms, and end users will benefit from Nlyte’s packaged delivery approach to providing VMware, Hyper-V, and Xen connectors out-of-the-box. With these additional connectors, Nlyte enables its customers to leverage the knowledge derived from ITSM systems throughout its comprehensive DCIM offering.”
As enterprises continue to deploy virtualization and cloud technologies, the need to correlate the management of virtual and physical assets becomes paramount. By connecting the virtual layer with the physical layer, data center managers can better monitor virtual growth, power, space, network and cooling enhancing its ability to provide deep insight into capacity planning at all levels.
“As enterprises look to scale their business and make use of virtualization platforms, the ability to manage virtual, logical and physical assets becomes a huge challenge in the data center,” said Robert Neave, co-founder and CTO of Nlyte Software. “By supporting all of the leading virtualization platforms, enterprises can now connect virtual layers of their data center to the logical and physical assets for better capacity planning and management while also reducing the risk of failures and outages caused by the nature of these dynamic workloads. In simple terms, instantiating virtual machines is now push-button, while getting the power needed to run them is quite the opposite.”
Key Features of Nlyte Virtualization Connectors:
- Automatic discovery and monitoring of virtual machines
- Single view across all physical and virtual servers and machines
- Increased control and optimization of both physical and virtual resources
- Reduced complexity and cost of managing a virtualized data center
- Decreased risk during move, adds and decommissions
- Clear identification of “Guests” and “Hosts” during outages and support
- Reduced mean time to repair (MTTR) by quickly determining the rack location of the physical server the virtual machine is running on
By incorporating the use of these and other ITSM connectors from Nlyte, organizations can finally gain critical linkage between their physical and logical layers. By doing so, the Nlyte Central Repository becomes the most comprehensive representation of all aspects of the data center, allowing capacity management and impact analysis decisions to be made with even higher levels of insight and accuracy.
