A couple of of products discussed.
“SolarWinds Virtualization Manager takes you from the early stages of virtualization deployment and all the way to implementation of private cloud initiatives and IT-as-a-Service. Our unified approach to VMware® capacity planning, VM sprawl control, performance monitoring, configuration management, and chargeback automation makes it easy to take control of your virtualized environment—regardless of whether you manage as few as fifty virtual machines or a corporate cloud the size of a small planet.”
“Storage management in a virtualized environment used to be a real nightmare. But not any longer! SolarWinds Storage Manager optimizes the performance and capacity of your physical and virtual storage infrastructure and delivers visibility and insight into how your storage infrastructure maps to your virtualized environment. And unlike element management tools from storage hardware vendors, Storage Manager gives you a comprehensive view into the real-time status of your entire multi-vendor SAN—through a single pane of glass.”
