Embotics To Demonstrate V-Commander 2.0 and Distribute Free Virtualization Tool V-Scout at VMworld 2008 in Las Vegas

Embotics, the Virtualization Lifecycle Management™ Company, today announced it is publicly debuting its new free product Embotics V-Scout, and demonstrating its flagship product, V-Commander 2.0, at VMworld 2008 in Las Vegas. 

The company is introducing its free insight tool, V-Scout, which gives VM administrators complete and thorough oversight of their virtual environment at no cost.  V-Commander 2.0, launched in June 2008, is a comprehensive policy-based management and control system for virtual machines, preventing virtual sprawl for enterprises.



Embotics’ newly announced V-Scout helps organizations assess and evaluate their current virtualization deployments so that they gain complete control and avoid problems such as virtual sprawl.  V-Scout, a complement to Embotics’ flagship product, V-Commander, automates data collection and replaces commonly used VM tracking spreadsheets with consistent and on demand reporting.  The product eases the process of virtualization adoption, while giving administrators a view of the quality of Embotics’ products.  



Organizations worldwide are experiencing the benefits of server virtualization with an increased amount of agility in the data center, resource consolidation and ultimately, a remarkable return on investment.  Companies are quickly realizing, however, that an environment with no control or oversight quickly reverses any previously seen benefits. 


Controlling virtual environments is a four stage process: 1) Gather as much insight as possible into a specific implementation of virtualization, specifically how the environment is growing, how dynamic it is and who is creating or moving virtual machines; 2) Formulate the policies that you will need to control the environment; 3) Automate those policies as much as possible for both consistency and auditability; and 4) Integrate your virtual management tools with your traditional data center tools, allowing management through a single pane.


Without adequate insight, it is impossible to move to the other stages, which is why most organizations use manual tracking systems like spreadsheets.  Implementing a self-populating insight tool that helps to strategically understand the state of an environment eliminates both the manual effort and the potential for error.  V-Scout’s free automated reporting provides the insight necessary for organizations to decide on the necessary control policies.  Embotics will give away copies of V-Scout and demonstrate its flagship product V-Commander 2.0 at the show.
