Cost pressures dictate the needs for virtualization optimization, and the ability to accurately predict future performance and capacity needs, reclaim server and storage assets, forecast capital investments, and improve visibility and productivity.

Consonus today announced a partnership with Akorri™, the leader in virtual infrastructure performance and capacity management for the dynamic data center. The company will debut the newest version of its award-winning virtualization management software during a special web event scheduled for Thursday, 13 May 2010, at 12:00 noon EDT.

BalancePoint customers typically realize return on investment (ROI) within two to four months.

“As companies progress through the stages of virtualization adoption, concerns about ROI, performance, capacity planning, and control exponentially increase,” said Steve Bulmer, Consonus chief technology officer. “We partnered with Akorri to enhance Consonus’ world-class virtualization solutions by offering analytical data to solve performance problems, identify opportunities for optimization, guide planning for growth and change, and manage services levels to meet business requirements.”
