VMTurbo, the leading provider of intelligent workload management software for
cloud and virtualized environments, today announced that it is gaining
traction in the education sector, as more universities and higher
education organizations turn to VMTurbo Operations Manager to ensure
peak performance, increase utilization, and drastically reduce operating
costs. Addressing the need for automated decision-making to specify and
implement actions that reduce resource contention and prevent
performance issues, VMTurbo is providing these institutions with a
solution for the multi-faceted issues that arise when managing large,
multi-site data centers that run a wide-range of applications.
more universities rely on virtualized and cloud environments to operate
their massively complex and dynamic infrastructures, the need for an
innovative operational approach to automate and control these
environments is at an all-time high. The constant, real-time
coordination between operational teams to identify, diagnose and remedy
issues is too labor-intensive to scale," said Lauren Whitehouse,
director of product marketing at VMTurbo. "Our success with higher
education validates the difficult workload management challenges we
address and solve for IT."
VMTurbo has been deployed by a number of well-known organizations including London School of Economics (LSE),
Northeastern University, Saarland University, East Carolina University,
the University of Bielefeld, Edith Cowan University, Lane Community
College, Washington University in St. Louis, and Indiana University.
LSE, an acclaimed specialist university with an international intake
and a global reach, turned to VMTurbo after its existing tools failed to
ensure that applications were resourced effectively.
What Higher Ed Customers are Saying About VMTurbo
LSE, we have a fundamental belief in economics and to see VMTurbo apply
the same principles in their approach to automating control across
virtualized data centers made them a natural fit," said Danny Simpson,
systems specialist for IT services at LSE. "VMTurbo Operations Manager
has given us the ability to better dictate how infrastructure resources
are allocated to applications and workloads managed by our application
and web teams. The market-based approach utilized in their analytic
model automates the decision-making process across our virtual
environment and has dramatically improved our ability to ensure
performance, increase utilization and reduce operating costs."
VMTurbo has over all the other vendors in this space that I'm aware of
is their unique economic model, the way they look at things," said
Robert Reynolds, lead virtualization architect at Indiana University.
"Instead of just pulling raw data out of VCenter on CPU use or memory
use, they actually drill in and create an entire model which they also
include in their planning tabs. That's something that no other vendor
really has to offer. Their approach is something really different and
