VMware virtual server technologies provide companies with the ability to do more with less resources. While this technology makes computing easier and efficient, virtualization makes IT infrastructures harder to monitor and manage. Effective monitoring and management is critical for these environments to be adequate replacements for traditional hardware-based infrastructures.
The eG Monitor for VMware® Infrastructures™ (the eG VM Monitor™), part of the eG Enterprise Suite, is a comprehensive solution for monitoring and managing all aspects of virtual hosts and guests, whether the infrastructure is used to support server or desktop applications. Coupled with the ability of the eG Enterprise Suite to monitor over 150 applications, including Citrix, Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, SAP, and others, the eG VM Monitor - with its patent-pending In-N-Out Monitoring™ technology -- provides a comprehensive end-to-end solution for monitoring and managing the performance of virtual IT infrastructures.
Administrators can use the eG VM Monitor to monitor the performance of their physical and virtual infrastructures, troubleshoot problems to determine where the root-cause lies, assess where capacity bottlenecks are, and plan the usage of their servers and applications to optimize the utilization of the physical and virtual resources. The key customer benefits of this solution include higher uptime, better end-to-end performance, and operational cost savings through more effective utilization of key IT staff.
