VMTurbo Says It’s OK to Virtualize Critical Apps

It says its ESE model provides a fundamentally different method for controlling & managing data center & cloud infrastructure

VMTurbo has added application delivery visibility to its intelligent workload management software for cloud and virtualized environments.

The new Operations Manager 3.1 basically assures companies that it's okay to virtualize business-critical applications because it can ensure service and resource availability based on application performance and business priority. That includes transaction time and performance characteristics for multi-tiered applications

The widgetry expands VMTurbo's patented Economic Scheduling Engine (ESE) model to the ADC environment, ensuring application performance for multi-tiered business-critical applications.

It says its ESE model provides a fundamentally different method for controlling and managing data center and cloud infrastructures by employing a market-based approach that allocates resources, manages capacity and ensures application performance based on business priority.

By integrating with leading ADC solutions like Citrix' NetScaler, Operations Manager 3.1 can assess the application environment and prioritize resources by adding virtual machines across a load-balanced application farm as demand increases.

VMTurbo claims it's the only solution on the market that understands application performance, resource utilization and capacity constraints in a virtualized data center and can automatically adjust resource allocation based on priority.

It's supposed to utilize performance and configuration information from all levels of the IT stack to automate intelligent decision-making across these complex environments.

The VMTurbo platform claims it's been deployed by 4,000 cloud service providers and enterprises worldwide since October of 2010 including British Telecom and L-3 Communications.
