Virtual Instruments Corp. is further boosting its infrastructure performance management and application-tuning platform with the addition of support for Microsoft Hyper-V and IBM PowerVM virtual machines. Previously, the software had only supported VMware, Inc.’s vSphere. The firm also enhanced its analytics capabilities and said it will soon introduce a cloud option. The company also said it soon plans to add wire-data performance probes for network-attached storage (NAS) and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) storage protocols.
The San Jose, CA-based company, whose CEO is former Symantec Corp. chief John W. Thompson, aims its VirtualWisdom platform at application developers and storage operations teams that need deep insight on issues that throttle performance. It specifically targets organizations using the DevOps approach to application development.
