Embotics, which bills itself as a “Virtualization Lifecycle Management Company”, today released V-Commander 2.0 at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations and Management Summit 2008.
The new version of V-Commander reduces risks and costs by preventing virtual sprawl, automating lifecycle management and extending management systems for enterprise CIOs, CSOs, IT operations staff and security professionals.

V-Commander 2.0 aims to simplify virtual machine (VM) management within IT environments. Its features include:
- Expanded Policy Capabilities – Increased capacity for new policies enables expanded zones and VM grouping, as well as additional policy actions for the different stages of the VM lifecycle.
- Improved Reporting Capabilities – Facilitates unlimited custom reporting as well as task oriented reports that identify costs associated with expired, offline and unauthorized VMs.
- Additional Enterprise Features – Provides easier installation and configuration workflow by enabling automatic VM identification tagging and the ability to associate and assign policies to groups as opposed to individual VMs.
