Big Data Company Also Previews Groundbreaking "Workload Shapes" Technology, Advancing the State of the Art for Storage Performance Troubleshooting
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 25, 2014) - VMware's VMworld 2014 - Moscone South Booth #640 - CloudPhysics, who provides data-driven insights for smarter IT, today announced significant enhancements to its SaaS-based solution, including new Global Insights that make it possible for VMware users to continuously benchmark their virtual infrastructure against global metrics. In combination with new interactive Daily Insights, which dynamically aggregate and expose operational hazards from across the datacenter, Global Insights enable CloudPhysics users to instantly identify areas for improvement in their own environments as well as specific actions for achieving better datacenter health, performance and efficiency.
CloudPhysics is also previewing its "workload shapes" technology, an industry-first that provides VMware administrators with a visual shorthand for quickly recognizing storage performance anomalies, and deep visibility for accelerating resolution.
"Today's announcement delivers further on CloudPhysics' commitment to use Big Data to help IT teams make smarter operational decisions for better datacenters," said John Blumenthal, CloudPhysics vice president of product management. "We continue to formulate new ways to put data to work for our customers, yielding relevant insights at the right time, in the right context. From broad aggregation of operational metrics gathered across thousands of datacenters, to highly granular views into individual workload shapes, our data-driven insights give IT teams more power than ever before to understand, troubleshoot, and optimize their virtualized datacenters."
CloudPhysics' new features and technology preview will be unveiled at booth #640 at VMworld 2014, where the company is also sponsoring a contest to win Google Glass. In this show of skill, attendees can demonstrate their vSphere expertise by guessing the percentage change of key datacenter metrics over the past two years according to CloudPhysics' global data set.
