Lanamark Unveils Virtualization Services Software to Help Channel Partners Expedite Customer Adoption of Heterogeneous Virtualized Environments
Lanamark Inc., a provider of software solutions for accelerating virtualization services delivery, today announced limited availability of its flagship software solution Lanamark Suite. The company also announced a Lanamark Early Access Program (LEAP) for value-added resellers, consultants and system integrators.

Rapid growth of virtualization and the shortage of employees with the skills necessary to deploy it, is creating a tremendous opportunity for service providers to assist customers adopting virtual infrastructure, said Andi Mann, Research Director at Enterprise Management Associates. Using a combination of deep expertise in virtualization and the right software solutions, service providers can minimize risk and deliver tremendous value to customers embracing virtualization.

Lanamark Suite consists of software applications for discovering, monitoring, analyzing and optimizing heterogeneous IT infrastructure. It allows Lanamark channel partners to deliver virtualization services quickly and consistently across multiple hypervisors, protect customer data captured for analysis and differentiate their offerings by providing customers with unique, sophisticated and unbiased service deliverables. To maximize the speed, quality and consistency of services, providers can define service templates called Accelerators. These Accelerators allow channel partners to specify a policy for identifying application workloads and server resources to be assessed, select inventory and performance metrics to be collected, design reports and server templates to be used and specify analysis, planning and design modules to be activated in the Lanamark Studio.

Lanamark Suite enables service providers to deliver hypervisor-agnostic virtualization services that help their customers accelerate adoption of virtualized environments, said Mark Angelo, CEO and founder of Lanamark. Todays solutions are not designed for services delivery they are challenging and time-consuming to deploy, use and license. Furthermore, these solutions are very intrusive to customer environments and do not adequately secure and protect customer data. Our software is designed from the ground up to address these challenges and remove non-value-add activities. We enable our channel partners to focus on areas where they can leverage their extensive knowledge of IT infrastructure and add the most value for customers - analysis, design and optimization of virtualized and physical infrastructure.

Lanamark Suite consists of:

Lanamark Portal for managing customer accounts, engagements and assessments online. Using the Lanamark Portal, service providers can also administer teams of consultants and acquire individual licenses for workload analysis in Lanamark Studio.

Lanamark Explorer for truly agent-less collection of inventory and performance data about application workloads and server resources. Lanamark Explorer is a light-weight and easy-to-install application that does not require licenses upfront. The data it captures is stored in a secure snapshot that can only be unlocked by the service provider performing the assessment.

Lanamark Studio for rich analysis and reporting on application workloads and server resources. Using templates, consultants can identify virtualization candidates and automatically publish powerful charts and reports that map directly onto assessment deliverables, consistently across engagements.

Lanamark Early Access Program

Lanamark invites service providers interested in evaluating and shaping the Lanamark Suite to participate in its exclusive Lanamark Early Access Program (LEAP). The program includes free access to Lanamark Suite for 60 days, discounts on licenses, web-based product training and support. To learn more or to enroll, please visit www.lanamark.com/leap.
