Includes new 8GB SAN Performance Probe for private cloud performance optimisation
Storage area network (SAN) and virtual infrastructure company Virtual Instruments has launched its VirtualWisdom 3.0 product suite to provide comprehensive visibility across servers, networks and storage.
The company said that the suite includes the new 8GB SAN Performance Probe.
It added that VirtualWisdom 3.0 helps companies improve infrastructure performance and availability, reduce operating and capital expenditures, and accelerate the transition of business-critical applications to a private cloud environment.
The VirtualWisdom 3.0 platform is the only offering that can ensure the performance of business-critical applications in a virtualised environment through real-time analysis of SAN I/O traffic data, claimed the company.
The VirtualWisdom 3.0 tool combines a new 8GB-capable hardware probe with next-generation software features to deliver expanded monitoring support and increased ease-of-use, said the company. VirtualWisdom supports all Fibre Channel switches and devices independent of supplier, the company added.
The VirtualWisdom platform also includes the Virtual Server Probe for accessing performance and utilisation data related to VMware vSphere environments, the SAN Availability Probe for monitoring SAN directors and switches, and the SANInsight TAP Patch Panel System for accessing data from the fibre optic physical layer, said Virtual Instruments.
Virtual Instruments president and CEO John W. Thompson said IT roles that look across all aspects of the virtualised data centre have the potential to become the next hot IT job.
"The new VirtualWisdom platform provides the essential cross-domain infrastructure monitoring solution to enable this new role and to ensure superior business-critical application performance and availability in the emerging private cloud infrastructure," Thompson said.
