VKernel moves into the cloud with vOperations Suite 4

VMworld may be owned and operated by VMware, but the largest virtualization show on earth isn't limited to VMware technologies, no matter how hard it tries at times.

VKernel, a longtime VMware ecosystem partner, announced and is displaying at the show its latest virtualization management application, vOperations Suite 4 (vOPS). The new vOPS suite is designed to provide operational clarity for cloud operators and enterprise data centers. But like others in VMware's partner ecosystem, VKernel is introducing support for other hypervisor platforms in order to differentiate itself from VMware-owned products. In this case, support for Microsoft Hyper-V is once again getting the nod.

According to the company, this latest release introduces full Hyper-V integration, a new visualization engine, and a VM cost index to provide clarity into performance, capacity, and cost across data centers, resources, and hypervisors.

Bryan Semple, chief marketing officer at VKernel, told InfoWorld that he believes the world is becoming more and more heterogeneous, driven by operating systems that align more closely with specific hypervisors, applications that are certified to run only on specific hypervisors, hypervisor licensing models with dramatically different cost structures and models, data center consolidations, and hybrid cloud adoptions.
