Reflex Systems, a pioneer in virtualization systems management solutions, today introduced vProfile, a new configuration management tool that enables IT managers to visually map configuration variances in their virtual infrastructure and enforces compliance with internal or external configuration standards.
A fully integrated component of the Reflex Virtualization Management Center (VMC), vProfile provides a highly flexible framework for IT teams who aim to scale the virtual infrastructure while ensuring consistent configuration, meeting compliance and audit requirements and implementing IT automation for management tasks. With vProfile configuration management, Reflex customers can see their virtual infrastructure visually expressed as a “heatmap,” enabling them to quickly identify configuration differences, remediate as needed and set configuration baselines.
Reflex VMC tracks thousands of properties associated with hosts, virtual machines and virtual management servers like VMware’s vCenter. vProfile configuration management utilizes networking, storage and operational configuration types for hosts running hypervisors such as VMware vSphere and ESXi.
Virtual Machine profiles may contain configuration properties such as CPU, memory, storage, networking and advanced properties. vProfile also extends to the configuration of multiple vCenters to manage folders, resource pools, permissions, roles, access control, high availability and DRS.
By recognizing these properties in the virtual infrastructure, storing them in the Virtualization CMDB, and surfacing them through its patent-pending Virtualization Query Language (VQL), Reflex can provide true integrated systems management, encompassing security, configuration management, compliance and policy enforcement throughout the virtualized data center.
