VMTurbo, which specializes in addressing the optimization and control of the virtual data center, has announced the general availability of the VMTurbo Cloud Operations Manager, designed to orchestrate across entire layers of the cloud stack, from services to infrastructure. And IaaS provider 6fusion has already signed on to integrate it into its multiple data centers across the globe.

The VMturbo Cloud Operations Manager is based on the free VMturbo Community Edition, which already provides infrastructure management, problem detection, performance reporting/altering and capacity reporting/alerting. But here's the fact sheet on what's exclusive to this premium version:



  • Grouping support for standard groups (data centers, clusters, storage tiers, folders) as well as custom groups

  • Workload placement policies

  • Policy driven corrective action execution

  • Email/SNMP notification

  • Workload service levels

  • Resource analysis settings

  • Storage configuration settings

  • Active directory support

  • REST/Perl API


The press release also affirmed VMTurbo Cloud Operations Manager is "geared to manage multiple virtual centers, multiple hypervisors and provides multi-tenancy customer-scoped views." If that sounds like a good fit for managing your complex cloud infrastructure, VMTurbo Cloud Operations Manager is priced at $49 per socket or $9 per VM.

As far as that 6fusion integration, the metered cloud service provider promises VMTurbo Cloud Operations Manager will make it easier for customers and partners to manage and scale their virtualized infrastructures.
