Hyper9 Introduces Search-Based Management for Virtual Environments
Hyper9, Inc., the leader in search-based software for managing the dynamic nature of virtual environments, today announced its first product, Hyper9, an innovative management platform for virtual environments. Hyper9 will be free to download in September.

Hyper9 is creating a new standard for managing virtual environments by aggregating details from disparate virtual server resources and presenting the data through an intuitive interface coupled with powerful search capability, said Mark Bowker, analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. The design of Hyper9 enables administrators to quickly drill down and search on relative data associated with the virtual environments and immediately deliver the information to the users fingertips.

Hyper9 leverages a Google-like search engine to access both real-time and historical data on everything from the guest operating system to the physical infrastructure, then presents that data via a next-generation user interface. As a result, Hyper9 supports faster troubleshooting, comprehensive monitoring and detailed reporting on the performance, configuration and utilization of virtual environments.

For data center managers, Hyper9 delivers a unique combination of the following capabilities:

  • Five points of inspections and data collection including the VirtualCenter database, VirtualCenter via an API, directly to host servers, the virtual machines (VM) and the sessions within the VMs;
  • A comprehensive, yet familiar visual environment written in easy to read and understand English;
  • Business intelligence tools that help analyze all that data;
  • Actionable responses to search results.

Just as virtualization is transforming traditional computing, Hyper9 is ready with a truly scalable, flexible and intuitive approach to managing these dynamic environments, said Chris Ostertag, president and CEO of Hyper9, Inc. Hyper9s unique architecture ensures that it can adapt to and accommodate the continually changing nature of virtual environments even as they gravitate to more hybrid states.

The initial Hyper9 virtual appliance is designed to work with the VMware ESX environment. Later versions will work with additional hypervisors.
