Ottawa, June 23, 2008Embotics, the Virtualization Lifecycle Management™ Company, today launches V-Commander 2.0 at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations and Management Summit 2008. Embotics’ V-Commander 2.0 reduces risks and costs by preventing virtual sprawl, automating lifecycle management and extending management systems for enterprise CIOs, CSOs, IT operations staff and security professionals. The technology gives the industry a simple tool to prevent sprawl, gain control of their virtual infrastructure and increase efficiency.

Enterprises are quickly realizing the challenges inherent in virtualization deployments and a high demand for management tools is in effect. V-Commander 2.0 satisfies this demand and continues to simplify virtual machine (VM) management within IT environments. Paul Casey, Data Center and Storage-Virtualization Technology Leader of Computacenter (UK) Ltd. said, “V-Commander 2.0 not only improves understanding of the virtual infrastructure, it simplifies troubleshooting, automates process, integrates with existing systems and brings virtual server sprawl under control.”

V-Commander 2.0 features include:

  • Expanded Policy Capabilities – Increased capacity for new policies enables expanded zones and VM grouping, as well as additional policy actions for the different stages of the VM lifecycle.
  • Improved Reporting Capabilities – Facilitates unlimited custom reporting as well as task oriented reports that identify costs associated with expired, offline and unauthorized VMs.
  • Additional Enterprise Features – Provides easier installation and configuration workflow by enabling automatic VM identification tagging and the ability to associate and assign policies to groups as opposed to individual VMs.

“Our customers and resellers see remarkable results from implementing VM lifecycle management, and Embotics remains committed to giving enterprises true control over their virtual environments,” said Jay Litkey, president and CEO of Embotics. “At a time when IT spending is low and management is looking to capitalize on the cost benefits associated with virtualization, V-Commander 2.0 allows companies to effectively cut costs and manage virtual sprawl with added ease of use and expanded capabilities.”

Embotics is publicly debuting V-Commander 2.0 at Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations and Management Summit 2008 in booth C from June 23-25, in Orlando, FL. V-Commander 2.0 will be available on July 11, 2008.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
