Among some of the products and enhancements we announced at last weeks VMware conference is the latest Foglight for Virtualization. Included in this announcement is the next version of the product that was formerly known as vKernal vOPS Standard.
Inside, it’s actually a suite of products that work together to streamline key virtualization, storage and cloud initiatives. The products are:
- Foglight for Virtualization, Enterprise Edition 7.0
- Foglight for Virtualization, Standard Edition 7.0
- Foglight for Storage Management 3.0.
The solution suite tackles a number of key IT challenges, including detecting and eliminating inactive “zombie” virtual machines.
Foglight Enterprise has all the features needed to track, monitor and simplify operational complexity in increasingly virtual datacenters. The product suite is also tightly integrated with Microsoft Active Directory, and Microsoft Exchange.
If you are looking for an eval or simpler way to get into Foglight for Virtualization, you can try out the Free Edition. Virtualization Review picked Foglight for Virtualization, Free Edition, as the best free tool at the show, along with selecting Dell Desktop Virtualization Solutions (DVS) as best Desktop/VDI.
