When we talk about VMware I would like to target your attention to "VMware's Top 10 Predictions for Virtualization in 2009". Read the predictions Dr. Stephen Herrod made. He is responsible for VMware's new technologies and technology collaborations with customers, partners and standards groups.
"The landscape of the cmarket in 2009 will be substantially different and more competitive as the industry focus shifts to management and automation. A number of virtualization management startup companies, many of whom are VMware partners, are looking to capitalize on this trend, each bringing its own unique value proposition to the table and hoping to advance the state of the art", says Tom Valovic in an article about virtualization published in the website Virtualization Review.
Mr. Valovic point readers attention to a company called Netuitive. He explains that Netuitive has been in the BSM and performance management business for almost 6 years and has over 200 enterprise class customers such as Cigna, Verizon, NTT, the US Army and MetLife.
The author says that the company's main advantage is a patented algorithm that its performance management software uses to provide continuously adaptive, self-learning capability.
Tom Valovic explains how Netuitive entered the virtualization market. The company released virtualization product "Netuitive SI" for VMware in March 2007. It helps VPS consumers to extract information about the behavior of each virtual machine (VM) and host running in a VMware ESX environment. Read the story in Virtualization Review.
