VKernel Releases SearchMyVM, Free “Google-Like” Search Utility for VMware ESX Server Environments

PORTSMOUTH, N.H., September 3, 2008 – VKernel Corporation, a provider of easy-to-use and quick-to-deploy virtual appliances for managing virtual server environments, today announced the release of a free “Google-like” search utility for quickly finding information within rapidly expanding VMware ESX environments. The VKernel SearchMyVM Beta is now available to download at: http://www.vkernel.com/downloads/all/.

“As dynamic virtual environments continue to rapidly grow in size and scope, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to find even the most basic information,” said Alex Bakman, founder and CEO of VKernel. “Our SearchMyVM virtual appliance enables users to easily query and find the information they are looking for. By making it a free product, we can help IT administrators find information quicker as well as demonstrate how simple all of our virtual appliances are to use and deploy”

Vkernel SearchMyVM instantly deploys exactly like each one of VKernel’s virtual appliances. With a “Google-like” search interface, users can find their virtual machines, hosts, clusters, storage, resource pools, files, snapshots, VMware tools, applications and configuration information. Over 75 different types of attributes are fully indexed and available to customers for search.

About VKernel Products

The patent-pending VKernel suite of virtual appliances simply snaps into a VMware ESX server infrastructure, just as a user would add a virtual machine. All of VKernel’s virtual appliances share a single, common database to avoid redundant network discoveries and auto-synchronize with VMware’s VirtualCenter to continually update itself to changes in hosts, clusters, and resource pools in a truly dynamic environment.

With single-screen management dashboards, VKernel products instantly enable IT groups to solve critical pain points by providing visibility into the capacity and resource consumption (CPU, memory, storage, and network) of each virtual machine. VKernel currently offers a Cost Visibility/Chargeback Virtual Appliance for metering actual resource usage to show resource consumption by departments and how much it costs, as well as a Capacity Bottleneck Analyzer Virtual Appliance for identifying and resolving current and future capacity bottlenecks.

About VKernel Corporation

Based in Portsmouth, NH, VKernel is dedicated to developing best-of-breed virtual appliances that enhance performance, lower costs, and simplify management of virtual environments of all sizes. As a member of VMware’s Technology Alliance Program, VKernel offers the industry’s only VMware certified Suite of Virtual Appliances for analyzing capacity, chargeback, and cost visibility. In February 2008, VKernel received an initial funding round of $4.6 million from Hummer Winblad Venture Partners and Polaris Venture Partners. For more information, visit www.vkernel.com.

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…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…
