BMC Performance Manager Receives Early Certification for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V
BMC Software (NYSE:BMC) announced that BMC Performance Manager for Servers is among the very first IT systems management products to receive the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V certification.

Microsofts certification closely follows BMCs major announcement on September 2, 2008 of nine new, fully-integrated solutions designed to help customers eliminate the escalating risks and operational expenses associated with inadequate management of virtualization. A virtualization management pioneer, BMC has been working with leading virtualization vendors for more than three years to help customers extract the most value from their virtualized IT infrastructure.

Virtualization offers the promise of cost reduction and increased data center efficiency, but the reality of managing virtualization often comes with significant added costs, said Jim Grant, senior vice president and general manager of BMCs Enterprise Service Management business unit. BMC Performance Manager is available to help enterprises proactively monitor both physical and virtualized environments while keeping costs down. BMC customers will benefit from the very real Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) reductions offered by Microsofts virtualization solutions, and were working with Microsoft to collectively help our customers create efficient and easy-to-manage virtualized operations. BMCs relationship with Microsoft continues to deliver strong benefits for our mutual customers.

BMC Performance Manager for Servers provides a valuable solution to customers that have virtualized their IT operations using Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, helping to ensure continued success with their virtualization initiatives, said David Greschler, Microsofts director of integrated virtualization strategy. Customers have the option of using BMC Performance Manager to manage virtual machines running within Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, helping make it possible for customers to maximize the return on their IT investments and keep up with the ever-changing needs of business.

BMC Performance Manager offers Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V customers an easy and cost-effective way to monitor their virtual machines and is the first step in helping them manage and control the entire lifecycle of virtualization in the data center. These solutions will provide joint customers with better resource utilization and cost reduction through consolidation. The implementation of BMCs virtualization management solution and Microsofts virtualization offerings provides customers with greater flexibility and agility in their virtualized IT operations.

In addition to BMC Performance Manager, BMC is working with Microsoft to optimize BMCs capacity planning, configuration automation and other management solutions for Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V. These solutions will help IT departments ensure that their virtualized servers are using resources efficiently while adhering to established processes and compliance measures.
