Vizioncore Announces Enterprise Class Virtual Machine Optimizer
Vizioncore Inc., the market leader in management tools for virtual infrastructure environments, today announced the release of vOptimizer version 4.0, a new enterprise-class version of its virtual machine optimization utility.

vOptimizer reduces a virtual machine's virtual hard drive to its smallest possible size and also optimizes Microsoft® Windows® guest operating systems for increased portability and performance. vOptimizer delivers better virtual machine performance, makes more efficient use of storage and significantly reduces the time spent deploying and managing virtual machine image files.

vOptimizer v4.0 includes two new editions and a number of key new features:

  • Desktop Edition enables unlimited optimizations of local VMs with all the associated vOptimizer size and performance gains.
  • Network Edition enables unlimited optimizations of VMs located anywhere across the network, LAN or WAN, plus the ability to automate and schedule jobs to optimize entire repositories in batch mode.
  • Significantly improved optimization processes delivering up to 80% reductions in VM size and 10x increase in optimization speed.
  • New management reports with related statistics, with notifications for optimization event activities.
  • vOptimizer no longer needs to run inside the VM, so the VM does not need to be running to be optimized.

Virtualization makes it so much easier to provision new servers, but from a networking and storage perspective, this can lead to a whole new set of demands as the number and size of virtual machines increases, said David Bieneman, founder and CEO of Vizioncore. Our vOptimizer utility allows organizations to create much leaner virtual machines which in turn makes them far easier to distribute, reduces virtual infrastructure storage demands, and increases their operating performance.

Trond Brande, a Microsoft Regional Director with Objectware stated: "The new enterprise capabilities of vOptimizer are extremely powerful. Using the new scheduler I can now setup overnight jobs to optimize VMs located locally or around the network, and wake up to a repository of freshly optimized virtual machine images. Its a very innovative tool and a great time saver.
