Earlier this week we announced general availability of VMTurbo Operations Manager v5.1. In a recent blog post Charles Crouchman, our CTO, shared more detail on one of the key improvements in this release our Application Control Module.
Why is this a key part to our latest release?
Think about it – why do companies build data centers in the first place? For most, such infrastructure exists to support the applications that are the lifeblood of their business – the manifestation of their mission.
But if the reason for a data center is the applications it supports, why is it that we’re focusing on the infrastructure supply without understanding application demand – and worse, drowning in alerts generated by old-school bottom-up monitoring tools that leave users with the heavy lifting of figuring out what actually went wrong. In a world where the complexity created by distributed, multi-tier applications is driving the data center beyond human scale, simple monitoring is no longer enough.
