Hyper9 Launches H9Labs to Roll Out Innovative Tools
Hyper9, Inc. (, the leading provider of solutions that help virtual infrastructure administrators manage their virtualized environments, announced today the creation of H9Labs, an experimental division of Hyper9 that will research, develop and provide VI administrators with an opportunity to experience and evaluate new and emerging innovations and technologies.

H9Labs is unique because it relies on the community of VI administrators for input on the capabilities they need most to effectively do their job, and user feedback will be crucial to help improve these tools before they attain general availability status.

“The customer matters more than ever in today’s business environment. So, we listen to the VI Admins and deliver products that will help them make smarter decisions when it comes to managing their virtual infrastructure,” said Chris Ostertag, CEO and founder of Hyper9. “H9Labs helps get innovative products to market more quickly, while continuing to improve our existing Hyper9 core product. Ultimately, this will help us reach our goal of becoming the destination for VI administrators to go to manage their virtualized environments.”

H9Labs recently announced VI administrator tools developed by H9Labs’s own Andrew Kutz, a well known developer in the VMware community who was recently named a vExpert by VMware.

H9Labs GuessMyOS plug-in replaces generic VM icons in the VI3 client inventory tree with OS-specific icons for both Windows and Linux guest and Virtualization Manager Mobile Beta, which allows the user to manage and monitor their virtual infrastructure from their favorite mobile device. The free H9Labs PowerShell Cmdlts, such as the Out-DataSet cmdlet, is an extremely useful and needed cmdlet as indicated by the VI administrator community. VI admins use it to pipe any type of data that can be formatted with the built-in cmdlet, Format-Table, into a typed Microsoft .NET System.Data.DataSet.

Hyper9’s Ostertag added that H9Labs will play an exciting role in helping the company maintain its leadership role in the virtualization management space. “We are uniquely suited to deliver on this business model because of our core in-house expertise in virtualization, systems management and Internet technologies,” said Ostertag.
