Virtualization Manager

SolarWinds® Virtualization Manager delivers integrated VMware® and Microsoft® Hyper-V® capacity planning, performance monitoring, VM sprawl control, VDI performance monitoring, configuration management, alert remediation, and chargeback automation—all in one affordable product that’s easy to download, deploy, and use. Start monitoring your VMs in about an hour.

 

VIRTUALIZATION MANAGER AT A GLANCE

» Use real-time dashboards to easily identify and troubleshoot performance, capacity, and configuration problems.

» Identify VM sprawl, which helps you reclaim and optimize space.

» Integrate with Server & Application Monitor to have complete visibility of the application stack— from app to VM to datastore—on the Orion® interface.

» Use baseline thresholds for alerting on performance discrepancies on clusters, hosts, VMs, and datastores.

» Eliminate frequent log ins into vCenter™ and take action from within Virtualization Manager.

 

FEATURES

Heterogeneous virtualization management

Manage both VMware® and Microsoft® Hyper-V® environments through a single pane of glass.

Virtualization performance monitoring and management

Proactively monitor and analyze virtualization-specific performance problems in VMware and Hyper-V environments.

Full application stack visibility and contextual awareness

Get complete visibility of the Application Stack Management Bundle for across-the-board contextual awareness of performance issues.

Virtualization management actions

Integration with the Orion® platform gives you virtualization management actions, such as power on/off, suspend, and reboot a VM, as well as the ability to take and delete snapshots.

Migration management actions

With VMware vSphere™ Storage vMotion® you can migrate VMs to a different host. Also, VM disks can be migrated to a different datastore or shared cluster volume using Storage vMotion.

Intelligent script-based automation

Execute management actions through customized scripts for maximum optimization of virtualized resources.

Alert remediation

Configure an alert to trigger a management action based on set thresholds

Enhanced virtualization metrics

Integration with the Orion® platform gives you more VM metrics data. Get access to features in Orion, such as role-based access control, Web-based reporting, alerting, improved virtualization management, and a synchronization wizard.

VDI performance monitoring and management

Monitor Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) performance, quickly troubleshoot issues, and easily plan VDI rollouts.

VM right-sizing and capacity planning

Manage, plan, and optimize VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual infrastructure capacity.

Virtualization dashboards

Get at-a-glance insight into the performance, capacity, configuration, and usage of your virtualized infrastructure.

VM sprawl control

Find stale, zombie, and over-allocated VMs, add or remove CPU and RAM, and delete VM’s orphaned VMDKs.

Virtualization performance alerts

Quickly discover and act on performance issues using flexible, out-of-the-box alerts within Virtualization Manager, which triggers alerts when a VM fails to respond during the expected interval. With the integration into Orion®, you can now set dynamic thresholds from baselines, and get alerted when your virtual appliance is about to reach warning or critical states.

Visibility into virtual machines

Get complete visibility into all your virtual machines, whether they are managed, stand-alone in Virtualization Manager, or in SolarWinds® Server & Application Monitor or Network Performance Monitor.

Virtualization configuration management

Track VM and host configurations over time to determine if your virtual environment configuration is performing optimally.

Virtualization dependency mapping and historical forensics

Map dependencies and perform forensic troubleshooting and problem analysis.

Virtualization chargeback and showback automation

Govern chargeback/showback IT, infrastructure, and Cloud services.

 

INTEGRATES WITH APPLICATION STACK MANAGEMENT BUNDLE

Integration with SolarWinds® Server & Application Monitor

When you integrate Virtualization Manager with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor, you can see a dashboard view of your applications’ health and status, as well as all dependent virtual server, host, cluster, and datastore information that supports the application and its virtual server.

Integration with SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor

When you integrate Virtualization Manager with SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor, you can see a dashboard view of the user experience and overall performance of internal (CRM, ERP, intranet) and customer-facing Web applications. Drill into website load times and page load speed by location, waterfall charts for heaviest page elements, and more.

Integration with SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor

Virtualization Manager integrates with SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor to give you a more detailed view of your virtual disks. You can drill through a datastore all the way to the LUN and array level.
