PAWZ CloudView now extends its performance, capacity and risk analysis software to include VMware support.

PerfCap Corporation, the leading provider of automated performance management and capacity planning software for the IT industry, today announced virtualization support in PAWZ Version 10. PAWZ with CloudView enables customers to expand the performance and capacity management of virtual infrastructures and distributed applications. Using CloudView, IT managers can optimize current resource usage and plan for future growth ensuring the best possible system responsiveness.

PAWZ with CloudView delivers a comprehensive, automated software solution that at-a-glance provides enterprise, data center, cluster and host views of the availability of important virtual infrastructure resources and applications. Utilizing sophisticated modeling and “what if” analysis, CloudView goes beyond simple trending to forecast actual system and application responsiveness and end-user satisfaction. CloudView features include the ability to:

  • Automatically monitor, analyze, report, and project key performance dimensions of virtualized resources, including: CPU; memory; network and SAN adapters; storage space and latency;
  • Enable management, infrastructure and application teams to visualize the important virtual infrastructure resources and performance risk status pertinent to their perspective;
  • Automatically identify and analyze guest provisioning issues and recommend solutions; and
  • Integrate with VMware’s agentless collector technology.

These virtualization features further enhance PAWZ’s already powerful performance management and capacity planning capabilities. Customers can now take advantage of industry-leading functionality that dramatically improves the management of infrastructure and applications, enabling enhanced end-user performance and more effective utilization of systems while improving IT support productivity.

“Aberdeen research finds that today over 60% of all applications are virtualized”, said Dick Csaplar, Senior Research Analyst for Aberdeen’s Storage and Virtualization practice. “This makes understanding how servers are provisioned more important than ever because the findings can be leveraged across a large number of servers. With a tool like PAWZ CloudView users will know exactly what servers can handle additional loads so companies can avoid purchasing new, unnecessary hardware”.

“Virtualized environments introduce additional challenges in managing large server estates” said Prem Sinha, CEO of PerfCap. “These new CloudView features give IT organizations the tools they need to monitor, understand and plan their virtual infrastructure in the most cost effective manner”.

PAWZ simplifies the often challenging task of managing the performance of computer systems and applications in today’s distributed, heterogeneous environments. It meets the challenges that IS managers face by allowing them to visualize the performance, capacity and risk status of all of their servers and applications in a single view. PAWZ provides realistic capacity planning, even with limited historical business forecasts, by going beyond the simple trending projections to forecast actual system responsiveness based upon sophisticated algorithms that reflect end-user satisfaction - all while easily scaling to manage 10s to 10,000s of servers.
