New features of VRM include:
VRM automates the management of virtual servers and desktops, from the time they’re created until they’re decommissioned. Innovations such as VRM’s desktop extensions help IT organizations deliver high value and competitive advantages to their customers.
- Extensions that support key virtual desktop components included in Citrix XenDesktop™ and VMware’s virtual desktop infrastructure.
- Microsoft’s Hyper-V support.
- The VRM Infrastructure Organizer, for fast, efficient mapping of an organization’s virtual assets into its existing shared infrastructure.
"Desktop virtualization is taking off, and large scale deployments see high rates of change. These deployments need management tools to be efficient and economical," said Rachel Chalmers, research director, infrastructure, the 451 Group. "DynamicOps' VRM can let desktop groups choose best-of-breed point products while retaining overall control of their environment."
VRM desktop extensions support Citrix XenServer™ and key components in Citrix XenDesktop, including Citrix Provisioning Server™, and Desktop Delivery Controller. In addition to its current support for VMware’s ESX server and Virtual Center, early in 2009 DynamicOps will release additional extensions for VMware’s just-announced VMware View 3 virtual desktop stack.
