DynamicOps, the recently launched venture-backed spinout of Credit Suisse, today formally released (PDF) Virtual Resource Manager, software that is designed to simplify, automate and accelerate the deployment and management of virtual machines to give companies true business agility.
According to the official statement, the software has been used in production for more than two years in four large-scale, complex data centers at Credit Suisse, managing thousands of virtual machines (VM).
Virtual Resource Manager (VRM) lets companies determine how to use physical and virtual compute assets, where to allocate resources, and what access to give to business units and individuals, all within a company’s corporate governance and compliance requirements.
VRM boasts proven scalability which meets the virtualization challenges of the most demanding enterprises. VRM’s open architecture works with virtualization tools and technologies from Citrix, Microsoft, Sun, and VMWare and is compatible with Windows and Linux operating systems and a host of other data center products already in use by many large companies.
“The unique self-service capability allows business lines to instantly provide new IT environments, and at the same time, allows central IT to maintain proper controls and policies,” explained Leslie Muller, the driving force behind the product development at Credit Suisse, and now CTO at DynamicOps. “VRM provisions servers, desktops, applications, and tools as a single package for our clients, providing faster access to custom environments and resources at a fraction of the cost. It also helps IT employees develop applications and products faster to increase company revenues.”
