CHANTILLY, Va. -- Fortisphere, a provider of enterprise virtual machine lifecycle management software, today announced the general availability of Fortisphere Virtual Essentials, a virtual machine (VM) lifecycle management solution suite. Providing organizations with cradle-to-grave identification, tracking, reporting and management of online and offline virtual machines, Virtual Essentials delivers unprecedented visibility and control throughout enterprise virtual infrastructures. This new solution is based on Fortispheres pioneering Smart Growth approach to rapidly expanding virtual infrastructures through greater visibility, granular control and policy-enforced best practices.
The continued growth in the enterprise adoption of virtualization technologies is surfacing operational challenges in many areas, but chief among the concerns identified by our research is managing virtual machine sprawl, said Cameron Haight, research vice president, Gartner, Inc. This, along with the need for improved virtual machine visibility will increasingly motivate IT organizations to begin to look for tools that can reduce virtualization management complexity (and potential exposure) while maximizing virtualization administrator efficiency.
