BURLINGTON, Mass., Nov. 29 – VMTurbo, the leading provider of intelligent workload management software for cloud and virtualized environments, today announced that Infinitely Virtual, a leading provider of virtual server cloud computing services, selected VMTurbo Operations Manager as its operations management solution. By incorporating VMTurbo’s intelligent workload management software into its cloud hosting platform, Infinitely Virtual is able to properly right-size and continuously tune the shared infrastructure to provide its customers with enhanced, around-the-clock, peak performance without compromising on its operational economics.
“Infinitely Virtual is always on the hunt for ways in which we can optimize system performance as our customer base grows, and as our customers move more operations to the cloud,” said Adam Stern, founder and CEO, Infinitely Virtual. “In a massively virtualized environment such as ours, it is difficult to measure and efficiently distribute the load placed on our infrastructure by the many thousands of individual VMs, each consuming varying levels of RAM, CPU and disk IOPs. VMTurbo Operations Manager is a great addition to our hosting model since it solves this by not only providing valuable insight into resource consumption, but also by automating resource allocation and workload placement to eliminate bottlenecks. The end result is a higher level of consistency and performance for all our customers.”
As cloud adoption hits mainstream, today’s cloud service providers have unique requirements in planning, building, managing and maintaining infrastructure services that are scalable to the largest environments. The management approach must change to solve for the interference and resource contention that often accompanies a shared resource model, and take advantage of the increased fluidity provided via virtualization. VMTurbo enables this new approach – giving service providers greater control by driving automated, intelligent decision-making across the virtual data center and cloud infrastructure.
“As a provider of high quality hosting services with aggressively-priced and differentiated offerings, Infinitely Virtual represents exactly the kind of innovative service provider that fits well with our technology,” said Lou Shipley, chief executive officer of VMTurbo. “We are seeing incredible growth in our service provider business as companies like Infinitely Virtual use our product to optimize data center assets and operational processes. We are excited to be working with Infinitely Virtual to help them ensure service levels, accommodate growth, increase margins and create new revenue streams for their business.”
