vKernel Helps Troubleshoot Sluggish VM Deployments

Are your VMs not performing up to snuff? Then it might be time to take a look at a new version 3.5 of vKernel’s vOperations Suite (vOps). It is now available and comes chock full of features to help you diagnose your virtual infrastructure problems.

The suite has four separate modules for analyzing performance, looking at capacity issues, a general VM optimizer and a reporting tool. It installs as a single agentless virtual appliance that collects information directly from VMware’s vCenter, and then has a centralized dashboard so you can keep track of everything. For example, you can figure out which of your ESX hosts have the most spare capacity, whether any of your VMs are running out of virtual memory or need additional virtual CPUs to handle their workload, and how many actual VMs you are currently running.

New to v3.5 are enhanced reports that can be shared, better support for more complex VM infrastructures, better “what-if” analyses, and improved analytics.

Pricing starts at $299 per socket for a single module, with the entire four-module suite available at $649 per socket. You can download a free 30-day trial at the company’s site. Subsets of the features for the VMware product (which requires at least ESX 2.5) are also available for HyperV installations.
