Foglight has been Quest’s flagship network monitoring tool, and this version extends its reach to VDI implementations and gives you visibility into performance and availability of particular images across your network and storage infrastructure. There are also new connectors to enable Android phones and Mac and Linux desktop users to bring up the virtual workspaces in these environments.

  • vFoglight v6.6 is a multi-platform capacity manager for VMware and Hyper-V. It can be used to plan workload migrations from physical to virtual machines. They have also upped the performance and improved their reporting module.
  • vRanger Pro v5.2, which was announced earlier this summer, is Quest’s backup and recovery tool.
