Release: New Version Of vOptimizer Pro

Vizioncore, a wholly owned subsidiary of Quest Software, has announced the availability of a new version of vOptimizer Pro.

This storage optimization solution provides broader platform support for virtual machine (VM) storage reclamation and optimization operations, which enables customers to experience greater benefits and additional value from their virtual infrastructure. Additional enhancements include support for both Linux-based and VMware Thin Provisioned VMs.

Since its launch in early 2009, the vOptimizer Pro solution has helped system administrators quickly and easily reclaim over-allocated (wasted) virtual storage, right-size VM storage and optimize VM I/O performance. Organizations with large virtual infrastructures usually experience severe VM storage waste problems and costly storage acquisitions on a regular basis.

Many of these organizations do not realize just how much storage they are wasting and what the actual savings would be if they could free it up for use by other applications.

vOptimizer Pro Benefits:

  • Gain visibility of the total amount and value of over-allocated virtual storage
  • Reclaim wasted VM storage (shrink Virtual Machine Disks or VMDKs) for use by other applications and business units
  • Automate resizing of VMs “up” or “down” to alleviate administration time
  • Prevent VM outages due to storage shortages
  • Significantly improve VM I/O performance by performing 64K partition-block alignments

The latest version of vOptimizer Pro is generally available and priced at $299 (USD) per socket.
