mValent to Present June 25 Webinar on How to Help Cure 'Server Sprawl' from Virtualization with Configuration Management
mValent, Inc. (, a leading provider of application configuration management solutions, today announced it will co-host a webinar with HP entitled, Curing Virtualization Headaches: How Data Center Automation Tools Help, featuring guest speaker Ronni Colville, VP Distinguished Analyst with Gartner. This live presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, June 25, 2008 at 2 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. CT / 11 a.m. PT.

Colville will share Gartners latest insights and actionable advice on how configuration management and data center automation tools can cure many of the headaches caused by server sprawl due to virtualization. Ms. Colvilles presentation will be followed by brief overviews from representatives of co-sponsors mValent and HP.

Planning and performing server configuration management in the virtual server world will have to take into account new dynamics that did not previously require attention in the physical environment, explained Ronni Colville Gartner VP Distinguished Analyst and Cameron Haight, Gartner Research VP in the March 2008 Gartner report entitled When Servers Go Virtual: The Impact on Configuration Management. Gartner recommends that companies purchase configuration management tools that can directly address the nuances introduced by a virtual server infrastructure.

Virtualization saves time, money and increases efficiency in IT operations, said Jim Hickey, Chief Marketing Officer, mValent, Inc. However, by making the deployment of new servers as easy as copying and pasting, virtualization has greatly exacerbated the challenge of ensuring configuration consistency across server environments. mValent Integrity software picks-up where other solutions leave off, allowing virtualization to be extended up the stack by automating change and configuration management across virtual environments. Regardless of how many hundreds of virtual servers exist, mValent manages and provisions changes and configurations throughout an enterprise environment, maximizing the performance of IT assets running atop the hardware layer virtual or not.
