VKernel, provider of virtualization management tools for VMware and Hyper-V environments, today announced the addition of over 380 new IBM, HP and Dell server templates in its latest release of their free Capacity Modeler product. The move underscores the need for accurate virtual machine modeling in public and private clouds as well as heterogeneous datacenters.
Capacity Modeler was first offered as a free product to draw attention to the limited capabilities of VMware’s capacity planning solution – Capacity IQ. Capacity Modeler allows users to quickly test and validate hundreds of “what if” VM deployment and resource allocation scenarios based on the actual specifications of their target physical servers.
More accuracy in planning enables users to deploy more virtual machines on servers and storage, saving money while assuring robust performance.
