BMC pushes loads of Virtualization Management Tools

Bridget reporting...

Houston-based BMC Software introduced several new virtualization management products today, including nine new integrated offerings designed to eliminate the risk and operational expenses associated with management of virtualized data centers.

BMC’s new virtualization management products are fully integrated with virtualization products from Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Inc. and VMware Inc. The new BMC software is based on an automated set of closed-loop change and configuration management (CLCCM) process workflows that reduce the latency, cost and risk associated with change management. All of the new offerings support both virtual and physical infrastructures.

The nine new offerings support goals for performance, compliance and enterprise visibility by addressing the challenges created by virtualization.

Some of the issues addressed include the following:

*Planning a virtualization/consolidation initiative: BMC Virtualization Capacity Management and Planning Service is a packaged services offering that helps customers accelerate their virtualization efforts.

*Simplifying management: BMC Performance Management does complete performance monitoring across virtual infrastructure and applications with enhanced VMware Infrastructure 3 and VMotion support.

*Ensuring availability: BMC Application Performance and Analytics helps IT actively manage service levels in virtual infrastructures.
