Vizioncore Signals Changes to Corporate Strategy
Vizioncore Inc., the market leader in management tools for virtual infrastructure environments, today announced that it will be extending support to a wider range of virtualization platforms and is rebranding its range of products in preparation for this move.

Vizioncores product range will now consist of:

vRanger Pro (formerly esxRanger Professional) - provides image-level hot backups of either entire virtual machines or differentials - simply and easily while virtual machines continue running.

vCharter (formerly esxCharter) - provides a top-down view of performance for the entire virtual infrastructure in a drill-down display that shows each level - beginning with the container and then through to the host level as well as all virtual machines.

vReplicator (formerly esxReplicator)- supports replication of entire virtual machines including configuration settings, OS patches and the application itself as well as the data and all other OS-level changes.

vMigrator (formerly esxMigrator) - migrates virtual machines to new platforms while keeping the source virtual machines intact and unmodified, allowing them to be used even as the virtual machines are ported to new production servers.

vOptimizer (formerly Invirtus VM Optimizer) - reduces a virtual machine's virtual hard drive to the smallest size possible and optimizes guest operating systems for maximum performance and portability.

vConverter (formerly Invirtus Enterprise VM Converter) - significantly reduces the time and effort spent converting physical and virtual servers to VMware, Microsoft or Virtual Iron virtual machines.

vPackager (formerly Invirtus Libra) - provides a virtualization collaboration solution via virtual appliances by extending and optimizing the use of VMware Snapshot and Microsoft Differencing Disk technologies.

vEssentials (formerly esxEssentials) a powerful bundle package consisting of vRanger, vReplicator and vCharter for organizations looking to enhance disaster recovery and simplify the overall management of virtual infrastructures.

As the virtualization market has grown and matured, we have seen increased demand from customers running a variety of different virtualization technologies, said David Bieneman, founder and CEO of Vizioncore. We will continue to have a very close working relationship with VMware as a Technology Alliance Partner and through our active membership of the VMware Community Source Program. However, we are focused on virtualization as a whole and not one particular technology, so as we make the move to multi-platform virtualization support it is important that our branding reflects that fact. This is a very exciting move for Vizioncore and its partners as we look to make our proven technology even more accessible, and as we incorporate Invirtus technology into our fold we will be able to extend our capabilities even further to address the growing needs of our customers.

In July 2007, Vizioncore entered into a strategic partnership with Invirtus, a pioneer of virtualization management utilities. Under the terms of the partnership Vizioncore will OEM all Invirtus technology, collaborate with Invirtus on development initiatives and will exclusively distribute these products through its global partner channel.

At the beginning of the month, PHD Virtual Technologies announced that they were expanding their backup and restore technology beyond VMware ESX and vSphere support to also include coverage for Citrix XenServer. So it was no surprise to me to find PHD
