VirtualWisdom4.3 offers new software probes that support Microsoft Hyper-V and IBM PowerVM. It also includes enhanced Applied Analytics with the VM Coordinator to deliver end-to-end performance insights that accelerate business agility. Virtual Instruments will also soon launch wire-data performance probes for Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) storage protocols. In addition, Virtual Instruments introduced a flexible cloud delivery model for VirtualWisdom deployments, moving a customer’s platform appliance and data analytics to the cloud. With these new capabilities, Virtual Instruments is executing on its strategy to offer an end-to-end IPM platform that provides comprehensive insight into the performance and availability of any hypervisor, interconnect or data store. By correlating and analyzing millions of data points across the entire infrastructure, VirtualWisdom 4.3 provides business leaders, IT operations and application teams with definitive answers to proactively optimize their systems.

New capabilities include: ProbeVM for PowerVM, which provides greater insight into the virtualization stack to enable proper placement of workloads, as well as the intelligence needed to properly size the logical partitions (LPARs). ProbeVM for Hyper-V, which offers enhanced visibility into Hyper-V environments to rapidly diagnose the cause of application slowdowns and optimize VMs. VM Coordinator analytic, which aggregates and analyzes historical virtual machine (VM) resource usage to eliminate overprovisioning and needless rebalancing, and instead organize virtual workloads most efficiently in the face of challenging migrations and demands for efficiency. Cloud computing delivery model, which integrates an on-premise VirtualWisdom deployment with analytics pushed through the cloud to provide customers with the flexible options they need to support expanding company requirements, while keeping expenses and investments at a minimum. Expanded storage protocol support, which incorporates new hardware performance probes for NAS and FCoE, ensuring enterprises incorporating diverse storage technologies that have wide-reaching critical insights into the holistic performance of their complex, heterogeneous systems.
