Virtana Expands Multi-Cloud Management Platform to Encompass Capacity Planning, Cloud Cost Optimization and Infrastructure Performance Management (IPM)

Virtana announced it is integrating its flagship Infrastructure Performance Management (IPM) solution, VirtualWisdom, into Virtana Platform. Virtana Platform is a unified Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Platform that can consolidate several products into a single tool, helping customers overcome tool sprawl challenges. As part of Virtana's commitment to innovation and customer obsession, the company has integrated over a decade of on-premises monitoring expertise into the easy-to-use, SaaS-based Virtana Multi-Cloud Insights Platform.

With 82% of enterprise organizations currently leveraging a multi-cloud strategy and 63% of these organizations using five or more separate tools for migration, cloud cost optimization, IPM, and cloud infrastructure monitoring, it is imperative to easily solve cost, capacity, and performance challenges. One study found that 82% of organizations with workloads running in the public cloud have incurred "unnecessary" cloud costs. Virtana Platform delivers insights and recommendations across all aspects of multi-cloud infrastructure, allowing enterprises to make data-driven investments and accelerate planning, all tied to business outcomes. 

Virtana's IPM integration delivers an industry-leading foundation for Virtana Platform, as evidenced by the product's 5-star ratings across dozens of reviews on the trusted Gartner Peer Insights rating platform. One reviewer in the banking industry said, "The product is outstanding, it gives us a view into our environment that is not matched by other products we have used or reviewed." Another reviewer in the IT services industry cited the following as what they liked most about the product: "1 - It is packed with best AI capabilities. 2 - Faster resolution. 3 - Capacity forecasting is one of the best features. 4 - Continuously managing applications and resources."

Virtana Platform is powered by high fidelity data collection, automated discovery, dependency mapping, and AI-powered insight, and provides unified Kubernetes support across the portfolio. Virtana's Multi-Cloud Insights Platform offers four main products:

  • Infrastructure Performance Management: Ensures maximum performance of the entire infrastructure across multi-cloud environments
  • Capacity Planning: Forecasts capacity demands, projects how capacity matches to future business objectives, and leverages actionable insights on potential issues 
  • Cost Management: Radically simplifies cloud cost management and cultivates cloud cost accountability
  • Workload Placement: Plans smarter any-to-any migrations with better decisions about workload priorities, groups, and deployments

To simplify the user journey, Virtana is introducing a new innovative technology called ‘CloudMonitor,' which allows customers to bring together various services across the main Virtana Platform products. CloudMonitor provides a holistic view of users' hybrid infrastructure estate and solves the most challenging performance, cost, and capacity issues. 

"The integration of our Infrastructure Performance Management product into Virtana Platform is a critical next step in advancing our core technology. This move allows Virtana to accelerate delivery of newer capabilities, provide more insights, and accelerate efficiencies,"  said Jon Cyr, VP of Product Development at Virtana. "Organizations leveraging the cloud today are overwhelmed with data, tools, spend, and more - we're simplifying the journey for customers every step of the way."  

Virtana's Multi-Cloud Insights Platform delivers the following core benefits:

  • Ensure Rapid Problem Resolution: up to 80% decrease mean time to resolution
  • Expand Efficiency of Existing Assets: up to 50% increase in asset efficiency
  • De-risk Optimization Initiatives: Up to 50% staff productivity gains without impacting application performance
  • Reduce Cost: Consume only the products you need, and save up to 30% on cloud costs
