VMTurbo Extends QoS Adherence to Control the Full Stack
VMTurbo, the only application performance control system for the software-defined data center, today announced the latest release of its flagship product Operations Manager. This release builds on VMTurbo's patented, award-winning virtualization and cloud control, extending Quality of Service (QoS) adherence prioritization to packaged applications, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), and further into infrastructure and the public cloud, enabling intelligent placement and configuration across the full stack.

"With release 5.3, VMTurbo supports out-of-the-box QoS adherence to business-critical packaged applications such as Microsoft Exchange, databases and Java application servers -- ensuring they receive exactly the resources needed to run efficiently and effectively," said Ben Nye, CEO of VMTurbo. "We have also expanded VMTurbo's control system to improve the performance of VMware's NSX, Nutanix's hyper-converged infrastructure and IBM's SoftLayer cloud."

This latest release also offers integration with hyper-converged infrastructure leader Nutanix, reducing storage latency by maximizing the intelligent use of hot (SSD) storage over cold (HDD) storage, improving application performance across the hyper-converged infrastructure.

In addition, VMTurbo now sees IBM SoftLayer as an additional public cloud source for bursting compute, storage and network resources. SoftLayer users now have intelligent bursting capacity: VMTurbo maximizes utilization in the private cloud, only using the public cloud to meet unpredictable workload demand.

Finally, VMTurbo leverages NSX as a network flow source enabling network-aware workload placement. As data center operators leverage NSX for overlay networks, VMTurbo manages the tradeoff between localizing chatty workloads without starving them for compute and storage resources.

Other key benefits of Operations Manager 5.3 include:

  • Manage and control Microsoft Storage SMBv3 virtualized datastores in Hyper-V environments
  • Addition of shared-nothing migration, allowing VMs to move between hosts that do not share storage and eliminating artificial boundaries across infrastructure
  • Extension of support for Dell Compellent through the Storage Control Module
  • MySQL Databases through the Application Control Module

"This release is yet another step towards our vision of controlling any workload on any infrastructure, anywhere, anytime," said Shmuel Kliger, President and Founder of VMTurbo. "Utilizing our market abstraction VMTurbo provides a simple solution for a complex problem. We continue to extend our coverage across the full stack, adding commodities and treating each action as an economic exchange, thus extending application performance control to continuously drive our customer's environments to their healthiest state."

On August 26, 2015, VMTurbo will be hosting a live webinar on the launch of Operations Manager 5.3. To learn more, register for the webinar.

VMTurbo will be showcasing QoS control at VMworld in San Francisco from August 30 through September 2. Stop by Booth #505 during exhibition hours for a product demo and to learn more.
