Configuresoft Enhances VMware Visibility

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Configuresoft, a leading enterprise server configuration management company, today announced it has enhanced visibility into VMware virtualized environments with its new Enterprise Configuration Manager (ECM) virtualization solution. The Configuresoft Enterprise Configuration Manager (ECM) for Virtualization solution now includes powerful new reporting capabilities that complement the management capabilities of VMware virtualization software for license compliance, security, and operational efficiency. This reporting functionality provides IT organizations end-to-end, at-a-glance visibility for VMware environments.

Software vendors application licensing agreements have dramatically increased in complexity recently, so the ability to understand and ensure license compliance in a virtualized environment is crucial. ECM enables IT Operations staff to measure their VMware environments in order to accurately account for license usage, and easily maintain license compliance across the IT infrastructure. The solution’s new reports – such as “Virtual Environments Networking Details” and “Host Security Profile,” as well as “Details” and “Trends” reports for both virtual hosts and guests – enable customers to translate the licensing and configuration data into actionable goals for solving any licensing issues and driving continuous improvement.

“Solutions like ECM for Virtualization from Configuresoft address a key customer need for visibility into VMware environments,” said Brian Byun, vice president of global partners and solutions at VMware. “ECM for Virtualization enhances customers’ VMware deployments by making it much easier to measure and track software license usage to help maintain compliance with regulatory and industry security standards.”
