Addressing the needs of managing your virtualized infrastructure from a single console, Embotics V-Commander has been designed from the ground up as a holistic, fully integrated virtual machine (VM) lifecycle and private cloud management solution.
This real-time, policy-driven platform seamlessly integrates into virtual data centers continuously monitoring, controlling and optimizing the virtual infrastructure (VI). Designed to be hypervisor agnostic, V-Commander features deep integration with VMware vSphere that extends and enhances its feature set by providing enterprise class management and automation capabilities.
V-Commander simplifies the continuous management of virtual data centers and accelerates your private cloud strategy through policy-driven automation and lifecycle management. V-Commander deploys in minutes and within the first hour delivers virtual infrastructure automation and management capabilities such as:
- Self service and provisioning to end users within your organization
- Optimizes the configuration and performance of virtual assets
- Identifies, reclaims and prevents virtual waste, delivering back to infrastructure unused resources
- Treats VMs as assets via nosiness reporting and operational analytics
- Implements policy driven automation to drive operational excellence
A typical virtual asset lifecycle managed by V-Commander starts from the end user, who selects a service offering via the V-Commander service catalog. Service offerings are tailored and prepared by the organization to serve their needs and abstract the underlying infrastructure from end users. The precise annual cost is calculated and the user request is routed to an approval workflow. As soon as it has been approved, the virtual service is provisioned to the virtual infrastructure automatically and actively tracked by V-Commander, ensuring governance (who owns what), cost calculation (in terms of computing, storage and support resources) and capacity planning (datacenter resource usage and capacity projection).
Administrators can define and change virtual offerings, reconfigure workflows, monitor the capacity of their infrastructure and reclaim unused resources via the same platform, managing at the same time via a unified console any number of datacenters.
V-Commander currently supports vSphere deployments, Hyper-V support will be available in 2012.
