VMTurbo’s Disruptive Software-Driven Control Expands Across Storage and Fabric to Help Customers Achieve the Full Promise of Virtualization

VMTurbo also rockets up 63 places in Forbes’ ranking of America’s Most Promising Companies to #26

BOSTON – January 28, 2014 – VMTurbo, provider of the only Software-Driven Control for virtualized environments, today announced a new version of its flagship product, VMTurbo Operations Manager, enhanced with control modules for storage and fabric to drive virtualized environments to their desired state and maintain control in that state across the data center and IT stack.  These new solutions enable 30% improvement in utilization while providing greater control over all aspects of the environment the application workload touches – from compute and storage to fabric and cloud.

One of the major advancements in this release is management of the Converged Fabric layer with Cisco (CSCO) UCS support. Not only does VMTurbo provide unprecedented visibility into UCS from the fabric interconnect down to individual blades, it also enables control of UCS to manage real demand for UCS ports to maximize port utilization and avoid unnecessary port licensing costs.

VMTurbo is also disrupting enterprise software with its model of “easy to try, buy, deploy, and use.” Customers download VMTurbo Operations Manager and realize value instantly – unlike traditional management software that takes several months to install and perform after significant integration costs.  In fact, VMTurbo offers customers a free health check assessment of their virtual environments.  With VMTurbo, customers can break free from expensive, monitoring solutions that fail to eliminate reactive and labor-intensive IT fire fighting.

“I learned more about my data center in 15 minutes with VMTurbo than I did in the last five years,” said Chuck Green, CIO, AlphaMaxx Healthcare, Inc., the premiere NCQA-accredited perinatal population health management firm.  “It’s truly a paradigm shift.”

90% of customers that have implemented VMTurbo’s Software-Driven control system to manage their virtualized data centers and cloud infrastructures report a return-on-investment of less than three months from purchase – an unparalleled breakthrough disrupting traditional enterprise management software (Source: TechValidate 426-2A4-D05).

VMTurbo was recently recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Most Promising Companies, leaping 63 places from its 2013 position at #89 to rank #26 in 2014.  In late 2013, VMTurbo also received the JP Morgan Hall of Innovation award, after being named one of the most innovative technologies in the data center.

“VMTurbo’s technology is helping JPMorgan Chase optimize the utilization of virtual environments and thereby supporting a move from reactive to predictive workload management,” said George Sherman, Head of Compute Services, JPMorgan Chase. “Automation will enable our support teams to focus on higher value activity by preventing incidents and dynamically optimizing virtual environments.”

VMTurbo Operations Manager

VMTurbo Operations Manager is the only product on the market that understands application workload performance, resource utilization and constraints in virtualized datacenter and cloud deployments to drive an organization’s environment to its desired state – that state of perpetual health where application performance is assured while maximizing efficiency – and providing control over all aspects of the environment the application workload touches, from compute and storage to fabric and cloud. While competitive solutions focus on viewing – monitoring systems to send alerts requiring operational staff to troubleshoot and remedy issues – VMTurbo Operations Manager ties the viewing with the doing, so IT Operations staff can elevate their focus from reactive to strategic.

VMTurbo Fabric Control Module

Modern compute platforms and blade servers have morphed to fabrics unifying compute, network, virtualization and storage access into a single integrated architecture.  Furthermore, fabrics like Cisco (CSCO) UCS form the foundation of a programmable infrastructure for today’s private clouds and virtualized data centers, the backbone of converged infrastructure offerings from VCE vBlock and NetApp FlexPod.

With the addition of this Fabric Control Module, VMTurbo’s software-driven control system ensures workloads get the compute and network resources they need to perform reliably while maximizing the utilization of underlying blades and ports.
