SolarWinds Virtualization Manager Adds Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Support

SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced the latest release of SolarWinds Virtualization Manager with feature enhancements and attractive per-socket pricing designed to help IT pros maintain the health and performance of a VDI environment.

Overview:

  • SolarWinds Virtualization Manager is a comprehensive virtualization management software solution that delivers integrated VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V 3.0 performance monitoring, capacity planning, VM sprawl control, configuration management, and chargeback automation, helping to alleviate user pain points around troubleshooting, downtime and resource utilization across server, storage and desktop systems.
  • Virtualizing desktops affords IT organizations greater control including centralized administration, ensuring a secure environment and meeting compliance requirements. For end users, a VDI-supported environment allows for greater convenience with the freedom to have access to their personalized workspace at different locations and times.
  • Given a VDI environment's shared resources with the data center, virtual desktop loads have more peaks and are more transient than virtualized servers. IT pros have to be vigilant monitoring the environment and proactive anticipating growth before it happens to avoid impact on the end-user experience and business-critical data center applications.
  • SolarWinds Virtualization Manager consolidates VDI data into a single pane of glass for quick and easy monitoring of VDI performance issues like boot/logon storms related to storage I/O bottlenecks, CPU, memory contention and more.

"With SolarWinds' competitive per socket pricing and comprehensive set of features, Virtualization Manager is the most affordable and powerful virtualization management software solution in the market built for IT pros to manage environments in the early stages of virtualization to large-scale data center deployments," said Denny LeCompte, VP of product management, SolarWinds. "With this latest release, customers can now monitor both their data center and VDI environments from the same management solution."

Pricing and Availability:

Pricing for SolarWinds Virtualization Manager starts at $2,995 USD (up to 8 sockets) and includes one year of maintenance. For more information on SolarWinds Virtualization Manager or to download a free 30-day evaluation, visit the SolarWinds website or call 866.530.8100.
