Virtual Instruments has become Virtana, a company focused on providing customers with robust AI-powered hybrid IT infrastructure management platforms for mission-critical workloads.

Underscoring this commitment to helping enterprises manage their complex multi-cloud environments, Virtana introduced CloudWisdom, a SaaS-based cloud cost optimization and monitoring platform.

CloudWisdom helps customers plan, analyze and optimize their cloud workloads, services and resources. Along with the new name, the company has advanced its business model to include self-service SaaS and downloadable trial versions of its solutions.

Virtana has re-invented hybrid IT infrastructure management around a core understanding of applications and their relationship to the infrastructure – from the data center to the public cloud. Virtana’s VirtualWisdom, WorkloadWisdom and new CloudWisdom platforms form the foundation of next generation hybrid infrastructure management. Virtana platforms enable dramatically accelerated problem resolution; efficient management of capacity and cost; and intelligent automated workload placement.

“Connecting the dots between the health and performance of individual data center and public cloud resources with their exact impact on application SLAs and performance is the holy grail for enterprises embarking on their digital transformation journey,” said Torsten Volk, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Management Associates. “Virtana is combining its heritage of highly granular real-time application infrastructure monitoring with advanced machine learning and analytics capabilities from the Metricly (formerly Netuitive) acquisition, to ultimately offer comprehensive monitoring and policy-driven capacity optimization and automated problem resolution. This approach is becoming more and more relevant in the light of hybrid applications consisting of traditional monolithic enterprise apps that are extended through modern microservices.”

With the introduction of the CloudWisdom platform for cloud monitoring and cost analysis, Virtana’s hybrid IT infrastructure management portfolio encompasses the full range of cloud deployment models – including public, private, hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Tightly integrated with VirtualWisdom, the CloudWisdom platform features full-stack, cloud-native monitoring from a single pane of glass. CloudWisdom monitors middleware including databases, messaging platforms, microservices, and containers, as well as dozens of leading cloud infrastructure services. The platform includes machine intelligence-based capacity and performance analysis combined with continuous cost analysis and optimization based on workload demands.

CloudWisdom complements Virtana’s Cloud Migration Readiness (CMR) service, which provides enterprises with vital performance and cost insights into the workload behavior of applications targeted for public cloud migration by leveraging both workload analysis and workload simulation in the cloud.

VirtualWisdom, for the first time, is now available in a 30-day free trial version. The trial version offers 30 days of collection and 30 days of analysis and includes a Configuration Wizard; automated infrastructure and application discovery; the full portfolio of integrations for compute, network and storage, as well as installation documents and access to training videos.

“The future of IT operations is autonomous and hybrid. By providing a next generation, AI-powered hybrid infrastructure management platform, we are enabling IT operations to be more efficient and automated than ever,” said Philippe Vincent, CEO of Virtana. “Virtana’s goal is to help customers modernize and grow by embracing a new approach to monitoring, analysis and automation. By providing customers with deep infrastructure visibility through an app-centric, real-time approach, we’re delivering the foundation for intelligent automation and helping customers de-risk their journey to the hybrid cloud.”
