Vizioncore Launches New Enterprise Virt Monitoring Tool

Vizioncore Inc. today announced it has launched vCharter Pro, a monitoring tool designed for enterprise virtualization deployments running on VMware's ESX Server.

According to the company, vCharterPro can track performance for thousands of machines at once, and can provide "layered views" for everything from datacenters to shared storage to resource pools, or drill-down to a single machine.

Other features of the technology, built on Quest Software's Foglight, include Web-based viewing, "predictive monitoring" and the ability to combine "raw" and "derived" metrics.

"vCharter Pro delivers a wealth of metrics on activity and performance at different levels within the virtualized infrastructure and alerts customers on potential issues and bottlenecks, as well as ways to address these problems," commented Vizioncore President and Chief Operating Officer Chris Akerberg in a statement. "As an increasing amount of critical, highly transactional workloads are virtualized, performance issues are only likely to increase, and we see this as a compelling case for a product like vCharter Pro."

vCharter Pro is being sold through Vizioncore partners. Pricing was not released. A free demo of the product is available on the company's site here.
