Vizioncore today announced the beta release of the Virtualization EcoShell, a freeware graphical toolkit for IT administrators to streamline the management of multi-platform virtual environments. The Virtualization EcoShell, specifically tailored to virtualization experts and channel partners, leverages Windows PowerShell to deliver daily cost-savings opportunities for administrators of virtualized infrastructures.Having made an exciting and acclaimed debut at VMworld Europe in February, participants remarked that the IT-tailored interface of the Virtualization EcoShell was an easy and powerful way to maintain multi-platform virtual environments, as well as create, customize, and dramatically automate repetitive and complex tasks. Similar to the Microsoft Management Console, but focused on virtualization, partners saw the opportunity to provide custom admin interfaces and add significant value around their service offerings with the Virtualization EcoShell.
Paul Casey, Datacenter & Storage, Virtualization Technology Leader, at Computacenter, Europe’s leading independent provider of IT infrastructure services commented:
“The Virtualization EcoShell is innovative in its ability to provide a simple solution for customers to quickly capture any virtual infrastructure management tasks. This enables customers to automate multi-step tasks and simplify the delivery of otherwise complex procedures via PowerShell scripts. It also provides channel organizations, such as Computacenter, the opportunity to develop significant services around assessments for customers wishing to introduce process automation and thus reap benefits more quickly and in a cost effective manner.”
The Virtualization EcoShell provides several key features and out-of-the-box use cases for administrators. These capabilities will allow them to get a strong sense of how to optimize, streamline, manage and automate their multi-platform virtual environments.
As more organizations adopt Windows PowerShell scripts across platforms, administrators can share and enhance the capabilities of the Virtualization EcoShell through VESI, sponsored by Vizioncore. Providing personal and company-wide productivity, the Virtualization EcoShell delivers daily cost-savings opportunities and reduces the learning curve for administrators and the channel to manage virtual infrastructures.
