Cloud and virtualisation solutions provider VMware has launched a new management suite in Malaysia that it said would help streamline the operations of virtual and cloud environments.
Speaking on 31 January 2012, VMware country manager Laurence Si said the new VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite would help Malaysian companies to enhance the delivery of IT as a service. "As organisations implement private and hybrid clouds, they need a new approach to simplifying and automating IT."
"This is true as well for Malaysian organisations, which are looking to automation to take advantage of their cloud investment and amplify the value of their virtual environments," said Si. "In fact, findings from the Asia Pacific Cloud Maturity Index, a VMware-commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting in October 2011, revealed that 63 percent of Malaysian organisations surveyed said automated management is a very important IT capability to enabling cloud, exceeding the regional average of 54 percent."
"The highly dynamic nature of cloud infrastructure has outpaced traditional operations management disciplines, requiring customers to think differently about how to manage their virtual and cloud environments," said VMware director, product marketing, enterprise management, Rob Smoot. "The VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite provides customers with greater visibility 'under the hood' of their infrastructures, and it provides the actionable intelligence customers need to optimise efficiency, enable compliance and proactively manage service levels."
Smoot said the VMware vCenter Operations Suite was tightly integrated with VMware vSphere, and included new features such as tighter integration of performance, capacity and configuration management as well as a new dashboard for quicker, more effective system health analysis.
