eG Innovations Announces Performance Management Support for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0
eG Innovations, the award-winning provider of virtualization-aware service performance management solutions, announced that its eG Enterprise Suite has day-one support for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0, the latest update to Red Hat’s end-to-end virtualization portfolio that offers an attractive balance of enterprise virtualization management, performance and scalability for Linux and Windows workloads.

“Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 introduces compelling new capabilities for performance, reliability and flexibility for virtualized workloads,” said Navin Thadani, senior director, Virtualization Business at Red Hat. “eG Innovations has worked closely with us to tightly integrate their enterprise performance management products with the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization API. This enables a strong set of performance management and monitoring capabilities for our joint customers.”

"We see a lot of customer interest in managing multi-hypervisor environments to balance application support, scalability and cost,” said Srinivas Ramanathan, founder and CEO of eG Innovations. “Our broad platform support, now including Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0, means that enterprises can rely on eG Enterprise solutions to maximize service performance and user productivity in any IT environment, and thereby deliver on the ROI promise of transformational IT initiatives.”

With this release, eG Enterprise offers all of its industry-leading virtualization management capabilities for the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization platform. Administrators can use eG Enterprise to monitor the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization server and desktop platforms – including the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization hypervisor, datastores, virtual networks and Virtual Machines. eG Enterprise’s In-N-Out monitoring technology for virtual machines now fully supports the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization platform, so administrators can not only determine if specific Virtual Machines (VMs) are consuming resources, they can also drill down to determine why these VMs are taking up resources (i.e., which applications are responsible for this).

For enterprises’ virtualization initiatives to be successful, it is critical that end-users see the same, or better, performance from virtual infrastructures as they had experienced with physical infrastructures. To enable administrators to control the user experience in virtualized infrastructures, eG Enterprise provides the industry’s only virtualization-aware service topology mapping and automatic correlation, which allows administrators to monitor the virtual infrastructure not as a silo but as an integral component of the overall business service infrastructure. With this release, eG Enterprise’s virtualization-aware service topology mapping and automatic correlation fully supports the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 platform.

The company also expects Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization support to be available in Q1 2012 as part of its eG Enterprise On-Tap software as a service (SaaS) offering.
