As organizations become more mature with their use of server virtualization they are also encountering real problems, which if left unchecked are prohibiting them from reaping more from their virtualization investment. Many of these organizations are feeling pain from lack of performance management, backup and DR, application management, sprawl, etc... both in the virtual (and mixed virtual/physical) environments. This leads organizations to the need for the right solutions to quickly address the complexities brought about by virtualization and to further their mission to gain all that is “virtually” possible in their environment.
The introduction of virtualization, by nature, has raised the bar for fast time to value (at least during initial consolidation phase of the “low hanging fruit” and up to ~15% virtualized) in software deployment projects. Now as organizations mature with their use of virtualization, comes the need for tools to push that envelope and savvy customers are demanding the right solution with even faster time to value. It is no longer acceptable to commit your budget to a solution that doesn’t deliver real value and ROI until 6 months, or beyond; as IT budgets are even more constrained and scrutinized you now must be prepared to demonstrate value and ROI in DAYS - not months or years.
Vizioncore has always had this in mind when developing our market leading virtualization management solutions. The idea of quick to download and fast to implement solutions that solve REAL problems in the virtualized data center has paved the way for organizations to become even more virtualized, with more confidence and less risk. Vizioncore even put the icing on the cake with its recent release of vFoglight QuickView-Freeware performance monitoring for VMware environments.
