Virtual Instruments announced that its VirtualWisdom platform has been certified on VCETM VblockTM Systems as “VCE Vblock Ready.”

Vblock systems integrate leading Cisco networking and server, EMC storage and VMware cloud infrastructure technologies into a single intelligent converged infrastructure system with seamless support. This certification provides customers with the assurance that the Virtual Instruments VirtualWisdom platform will interoperate with Vblock systems.

The VirtualWisdom platform provides real-time, system-wide visibility into the performance, utilization and health of Vblock systems as well as broader physical, virtual and private cloud computing environments.

VirtualWisdom enhances Vblock environments with end-to-end real-time monitoring, ensuring the performance and availability of the infrastructure that supports customers’ mission-critical applications. Using VirtualWisdom to optimize the infrastructure, customers can realize the full economic benefits of networked storage and server virtualization and confidently migrate their mission-critical applications.

"Customers are increasingly relying on converged compute and storage infrastructure environments, like Vblock, to ensure a more agile IT environment that can respond more quickly to changing business priorities,” said Todd Osborne, senior director, Global Partner Sales & Alliances, Virtual Instruments. “To effectively respond to changing and unpredictable workloads, as well as variations in demand, organizations require real-time visibility throughout the infrastructure. VirtualWisdom provides Vblock systems customers with continuous real-time monitoring that measures actual I/O traffic data, significantly enhancing visibility into end-to-end converged infrastructure performance.”

VirtualWisdom can help customers increase the benefits of Vblock systems by:

- Reducing the risk of virtualizing more mission-critical applications and deploying more virtual machines (VMs) per physical server.

- Enabling more aggressive use of tiered storage by proving performance SLAs.

- Driving operational (OpEx) savings through increased operational efficiency and faster troubleshooting.

- Enabling capital expenditure (CapEx) savings by reducing over-provisioning and enabling effective storage tiering.

The certification was conducted by Superna, which has been authorized by VCE to provide Vblock system certifications to VCE Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program members.

This certification enables mutual channel partners and customers to accelerate adoption of Vblock systems by leveraging Virtual Instruments’ VirtualWisdom platform to ensure the performance and availability of mission-critical applications.
