Vizioncore Launches First Free Management Pack for VMware to Extend Microsoft System Center Operations Manager

Vizioncore Inc., the market leader in virtualization data protection and management solutions, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Quest Software, Inc., today announced the release of Quest Management Pack for VMware, the first free management pack on the market to extend Microsoft System Center Operations Manager to monitor VMware virtual infrastructure. The solution offers free community support with paid product support as an option.

By standardizing on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager, the end-to-end centralized monitoring framework for physical and virtual IT environments, organizations have been able to significantly reduce overall management costs. Quest Management Pack for VMware extends this centralized monitoring into VMware virtual infrastructures, offering the ability to detect, diagnose and resolve problems affecting the performance and availability of the IT infrastructure.

“Vizioncore is filling a very large gap between two major players in virtualization,” said *** Csaplar, senior research analyst, virtualization and storage, Aberdeen Group. “Aberdeen research shows that most organizations with server virtualization have used VMware hypervisors running on Windows-based servers. With the Quest Management Pack for VMware, capturing and reporting VMware performance and availability information allows users of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager to get the entire picture of their virtualized environment.”

A process of low overhead collection has enabled the Quest Management Pack for VMware to ensure minimal contention between monitoring and critical workloads that run in the monitoring system, enabling Vizioncore to seamlessly extend support to VMware virtual infrastructures.

“For the thousands of organizations that utilize Microsoft System Center Operations Manager as their primary monitoring framework, extending support to VMware virtual infrastructures makes Quest Management pack for VMware a vital offering,” explained Steve Stover, senior director, product management, at Vizioncore. “We are able to offer for free what many vendors would be charging for, enabling administrators managing virtual infrastructures to simply download this management pack and immediately wrap value around it for the benefit of their organizations.”

Quest Management Pack for VMware is offered by Vizioncore as a freeware solution with optional paid support. Support pricing includes both 1-year and 3-year options, set at $99 USD/socket and $238 USD/socket, respectively.
