Snapshot provides benefits to IT service companies to keep business critical applications available and cost effective for small, medium and enterprise businesses
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 29, 2012
Infrastructure Solutions, Inc. (ISI), a leading provider of IT infrastructure assessment and optimization software products and services, announces the release of ISI Snapshot Version 7.5 to support the new version of vSphere by VMWare. With the new release, IT system administrators, engineers and architects have comprehensive visibility of the virtual server infrastructure created by ESXi, and vSphere and can understand how effectively the virtual layer components are utilizing the physical hardware resources that have been allocated to vSphere.
The complete physical and virtual infrastructure picture provided by Snapshot allows managed service companies and IT professionals to align and configure virtual infrastructure for maximum cloud computing performance with full and efficient utilization of allocated physical core four resources (cpu, memory, disk i/o, network).
The other key benefits that Snapshot delivers for ESXi and vSphere virtual machines include:
— key information needed to quickly resolve application and configuration issues within a vSphere configuration
— allowing complimentary workloads to be placed on the same host with alignment of resources
— enabling smart network design and appropriate bandwidth implementation for SAN to avoid bottlenecks
— providing a solid understanding of the types of I/O used and corresponding I/O architecture for network storage
Snapshot 7.5’s vSphere support features include discovery and inventory of:
— all virtual devices created by the hypervisor
— all host hardware specifications, configurations and live performance data
— all guest virtual machine specifications, configurations and live performance data
— information on hosted virtual machine guests from the hypervisor instance
— information on local datastore attached to the hypervisor instance
Snapshot’s existing unique features include safe, non-invasive, read-only, agent-less discovery; reliable operation on physical, virtual and cloud IT infrastructures; support of multiple hypervisors; support of unlimited number of devices (avoiding the inconvenience of duplication error checking and manual integration for multiple analysis runs); and the ability to quickly handle any size configuration (can scan up to 500+ devices/hour). The application delivers detailed and complete information on all IT system components, operating systems, infrastructure interdependences, configurations, network traffic flow patterns, and application workloads and dependencies. In addition, Snapshot continues to provide advanced metrics and feature rich reporting capabilities.
“The new release of Snapshot to support the vSphere implementation is only natural, since ISI is committed to refreshing the very useful and powerful Snapshot features that run across physical, virtual and cloud computing platforms. We are proud that Snapshot continues provide its many benefits to IT service companies that do core and strategic IT tasks that keep business critical applications available and cost effective for small, medium and enterprise businesses.” said Willard (Bill) Cecchi, President of ISI.
