VMware vSphere Configuration Now Validated by Free Resilience Health Check from Continuity Software
Cloud-based service provides a quick and easy way for enterprise IT teams to verify vSphere configuration correctness and prevent availability issues
New York, NY (November 18, 2015) – Continuity Software, the leading provider of IT operations analytics solutions for infrastructure outage prevention, today announced the general availability of its vSphere Resilience HealthCheck. The free cloud-based service allows enterprise IT teams to validate the health of their virtual infrastructure in a simple and automated manner that takes just minutes.
Developed by leading experts in IT operations analytics and leveraging the industry’s most comprehensive knowledgebase, the vSphere Resilience HealthCheck dramatically improves infrastructure resilience and ensures that VMware teams are correctly applying the most current best-practices.
“Virtual infrastructure has become a dominant part of the modern data center, and the complexity of these environments continues to increase,” explained Doron Pinhas, CTO of Continuity Software., “Under a constant stream of configuration changes, human mistakes still proliferate, often resulting in painful and costly outages.”
“Keeping up with VMware best practices, especially while upgrading to new versions, is another significant challenge,” continued Pinhas. “What was a recommended configuration setting in vSphere v5.5 may have adverse effects in v6.0. Yet these configurations are automatically carried forward during the VMware upgrade process, making a post-upgrade check against current best-practices especially important.”
Using the vSphere Resilience HealthCheck is simple. Any VMware enterprise administrator can access and run the HealthCheck in a matter of minutes. Less than one hour later, a detailed report is provided, including an overall risk-level rating for the virtual infrastructure; a detailed assessment of the health and stability of all virtual infrastructure components (storage, compute, and network); and clearly-defined remediation steps for the issues presented. The report is delivered free-of-charge. An expanded version of the report is available for purchase.
