Integrien AliveVM Revolutionizes Performance Management for VMware Infrastructures

Integrien Software Uses Powerful Analytics and Visualizations to Help VMware Administrators Solve Performance Problems Quickly and Optimize Productivity

VMworld 2010 Conference

SAN FRANCISCO--()--VMworld Booth 1626--Integrien Corporation, the leader in real-time performance analytics, today announced the general availability of AliveVM, its real-time performance management solution for VMware administrators. The offering, which is available as a downloadable server install or virtual appliance, provides unprecedented visibility into the performance of VMware infrastructures.

"Integrien has developed a new paradigm for managing performance in VMware environments," said Rachel Chalmers, Research Director, Infrastructure Management at The 451 Group. "AliveVM's analytics overlay abstracts thousands of metric behaviors to three key measures of performance: performance Health, Workload and Capacity risk. This information is presented in hierarchical views that allow the VMware administrator to visually identify misbehaving elements at a glance so they can take corrective action."

AliveVM can be installed and configured in minutes. It automatically connects to a customer’s vCenter(s) to collect performance metrics, topology and configuration change events. AliveVM immediately applies sophisticated learning-based analytics to establish the normal behavior of every element in the VMware infrastructure down to the metric level. With AliveVM, VMware Administrators are no longer forced to rely on classic monitoring tools and techniques that provide limited insight into the performance of their virtual infrastructure. With the introduction of AliveVM, they are provided with detailed behavioral analysis of the entire virtual environment. AliveVM also provides a real-time summary of performance Health, Workload usage and Capacity forecasts for each and every virtual element (e.g., Virtual Machines, ESX Servers, Clusters, Storage LUNs and Network elements). Whether the virtual environment spans 50 Virtual Machines or 50,000, AliveVM vastly simplifies performance management and virtual infrastructure optimization.

“At Integrien, we believe that diagnosing performance problems in VMware virtual infrastructures should be much easier than it is today,” said Steve Henning, VP of Marketing, Integrien. “Our research indicates that VMware administrators currently spend up to 80 percent of their time isolating these issues due to the complexities of the existing administrator toolkit. AliveVM uses powerful analytics and visualizations that allow the VMware administrator to quickly identify which virtual elements are performing poorly, and then, with a single click, shows exactly what is causing the problem. Our beta testers indicate that AliveVM eliminates hundreds of mouse clicks and the need to memorize dozens of metric behaviors that are required with current tools.”

AliveVM is currently available for download with a free 60-day trial for up to 10 ESXs and 100 VMs at www.alivevm.com. Purchase options are also available through the site.
