Hyperic HQ For VMware Delivers Industry's First Virtualization Management Solution

Hyperic's Open Source Release Accessible to All Enterprises

Open Source IT management platform, Hyperic announced the availability of the industry’s first virtualization management solution Hyperic HQ for VMware. This pioneering solution enables data centers to consolidate complete discovery, monitoring, analysis and control of all application, system and network assets, both inside and outside of the virtual machines powered by VMware. 

Until today, virtualization deployments lacked a complete, unified view of the overall health of the IT ecosystem. More importantly, IT Operators were without an efficient method to conduct a root cause analysis across virtualized application infrastructure when performance issues arise. Hyperic HQ for VMware dramatically extends the capabilities to manage and analyze the full virtual stack, including the operating systems and applications running within the virtual machines, complimenting VMware VirtualCenter, the company’s own management solution.

“Virtualization magnifies management complexity by consolidating physical servers into multiple virtualized ones, each physical and virtual server with their own OS, configuration, applications,” explains Andi Mann, EMA Senior Analyst for Systems Management. “This means that what used to be maybe ten unique server environments can now become hundreds very quickly. A holistic approach to the manageability of all the various IT assets from applications to systems to networks becomes essential.”

Today, that key to systems manageability in a virtualized environment is available and accessible to customers of all sizes, architectures and budgets. By incorporating Hyperic’s technology into their IT Management strategy, users now have a single, open source solution that they can use to manage systems across their entire virtualized infrastructure—regardless of the combination of hardware and software they are using. This is the last piece of the puzzle IT Departments need in order to effectively manage their virtualized enterprise as it extends to widespread, mission critical deployments.

Hyperic's technology-neutral approach enables the discovery, monitoring, analysis and control of enterprise IT assets—from the network and operating system layers to the application and service tier. The company's flagship product, Hyperic HQ, is the first and only enterprise-class open source IT management solution that lets administrators manage the IT technologies in the market today as well as those bound to appear tomorrow. This core technology-adaptable design principal enabled Hyperic to extend the full capabilities of its already robust platform support to the virtualization world so quickly.

“Hyperic’s sophisticated architecture is built to streamline discovery and manageability of complex data center deployments with large multiples of physical servers and multi-tiered application environments,” said Hyperic CEO Javier Soltero. “By layering our inventory model to include the virtualized resources, and tapping VMware’s management interfaces, Hyperic is once again able to quickly extend our full cross-platform support to ensure managing virtual environments is equally easy and affordable to manage as traditional environments.”
