SolarWinds integrates virtualisation & storage solutions

01 Dec 11

IT management software vendor SolarWinds has integrated its virtualisation and storage management software products to help businesses as they virtualise more and more of their IT environments. 

Suku Krishnaraj, SVP of product strategy for SolarWinds, says once users have virtualised over 30% of their environments, managing storage infrastructure becomes critical to ensuring performance and capacity.

"Users who are now dealing with the operational challenges associated with virtualisation’s impact on the storage infrastructure are asking, ‘What VMs are using which physical storage resources?’ and ‘Is my poor performance due to storage or a logical unit number or VM?’” Krishnaraj says.

"With Virtualisation Manager and Storage Manager’s new integration features, users can gain a centralised look across the entire virtual and cloud infrastructure.”

Krishnaraj says the solution allows users to go beyond the datastore stats to the LUN and ultimately the physical disk level stats.

"There’s only one way to really simplify the management of virtual infrastructure,” Krishnaraj says.

"With software designed from the ground up to manage the complex and dynamically changing relationships that exist across your virtualised environment.”
