SolarWinds Enhances Virtualization Management Capabilities for Hybrid IT

Latest SolarWinds(R) Virtualization Manager Offers IT Pros Surprisingly Affordable, Enterprise-Class Virtualization Management With Easily Extendable Visibility Into Applications and Physical Servers

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced its virtualization management solution, SolarWinds Virtualization Manager, offers IT Professionals and virtualization admins extended reach and visibility into virtualized infrastructures with new functionalities including baselines, role-based access control, and common alerting and reporting via integration with software that shares the SolarWinds technology "backbone."

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager delivers VMware® vSphere® and Microsoft® Hyper-V® capacity planning, performance monitoring, VM sprawl control, configuration management, and chargeback automation. The latest version of SolarWinds Virtualization Manager provides deeper integration with products that share the SolarWinds IT monitoring and management backbone, including SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM), offering virtualization admins extended visibility to their applications and physical servers in a uniquely affordable and enterprise-scalable solution.

"Virtualization management is not an island -- it's a necessary component to increasingly interdependent and complex hybrid IT infrastructures. Having advanced monitoring and management technology where applications operate on both virtualized and physical servers is now as critical for virtualization and systems admins as for any IT Pro to maintain strong infrastructure performance and to keep a business running," said Chris LaPoint, vice president of product management, SolarWinds. "SolarWinds Virtualization Manager's enhanced integration and industry-leading features give admins the in-depth insight they need to ensure the virtual environment is reliable and stable."

What's New in SolarWinds Virtualization Manager:

  • Baselines: Admins can manage and set thresholds for VMs, hosts and datastores based on historical and dynamic operational data and set intelligent alerts that allow them to quickly assess and determine deviations from normal operations
  • Role-Based Access Control: Admins have the flexibility to restrict users so they can limit visibility for departmental or multi-tenant types of environments
  • Integrated status monitoring, alerting and reporting: Admins can set alerts across application, server, virtualization, and networking solutions and improve monitoring and reporting of the IT infrastructure from end to end with the Web-based Report Writer

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager combined with SolarWinds' additional suite of integrated solutions make SolarWinds the market's leading provider of software that delivers a single pane of glass beyond the virtualized infrastructure including predictive insight and visibility into the application, networks, servers and storage infrastructure.

With the enhanced integration, virtualization admins can employ SolarWinds Virtualization Manager with SolarWinds SAM, for example, to get visibility between their virtual environments and over 150 applications out of the box across all major server and OS platforms without requiring additional installation of specific modules. This type of single add-on for comprehensive application visibility is not readily available in the virtualization management products offered by leading hypervisor vendors and gives virtualization admins the necessary insight into how that virtualization infrastructure impacts application performance and end-user experience.

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager was recently named Editor's Choice for Virtualization Management and Optimization by Virtualization Review was and voted second runner-up by Virtualization Admin's community in the Readers' Choice Awards for Monitoring, Management & Performance. It also earned finalist recognition in the Virtualization Solution category in the 2014 EdTech Digest Awards.

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager pricing starts at $2,995 and includes the first year of maintenance. For more information, including a downloadable, free 30-day evaluation, visit the SolarWinds website or call 866.530.8100.
