VMLogix Expands Support for Heterogeneous Virtualization Infrastructure in Newest Release of Virtual Lab Automation Solution

VMLogix, Inc., a provider of virtual machine management solutions designed for software companies and IT organizations, today announced the newest version of their flagship product, VMLogix LabManagerTM 3.8. The new release adds capabilities for network policy configurations and deployment within IP zones across multiple virtual hosts. This release also adds support for VMware vSphere™ 4 virtualization infrastructure and integration with VMware vCenter Server, formally VMware VirtualCenter, as well as extended support for Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2.

“Products such as VMLogix LabManager 3.8 enable customers to leverage VMware’s management console capabilities such as vMotion, which is a value add to users of vSphere and vCenter,” said Theresa Lanowitz, founder and CEO of voke, inc. “As the virtualization market continues to mature and expand, an increasing number of organizations are using hybrid hypervisor environments. LabManager’s ability to deploy virtual labs across multiple virtualization platforms offers choice while still ensuring centralized management functionality.”

VMLogix LabManager allows development, test and support teams to build, snapshot, share and deploy production-like environments on-demand across virtualization platforms. With LabManager, customers can consolidate and automate lab IT infrastructure in order to deliver and maintain software applications more quickly, cost-effectively and reliably. Companies can dramatically reduce the manual effort, time and IT resources required to develop and maintain higher quality software applications by using comprehensive automation capabilities, advanced team management and seamless integrations with leading solutions from HP and IBM.

“VMLogix continues to develop and innovate with functionality for our virtual lab management products. We also continue to make it our priority to provide extensive support for leading virtualization platforms from VMware and Microsoft,” said Sameer Dholakia, CEO of VMLogix. “Our newest release offers capabilities that make it even easier for organizations to integrate their virtual labs into their infrastructure as well as manage virtual machine instances within their deployment.”

New features of VMLogix LabManager 3.8 include:

  • Support for VMware vCenter Server 4.0 and VMware vSphere: integrating with VMware vCenter Server 4.0, LabManager supports a lab with VMware vSphere or VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3 hypervisors on the virtual hosts. The support for vCenter Server in LabManager allows administrators to benefit from platform management capabilities such as vMotion, DRS, HA and resource pools.
  • Updated support for Microsoft Hyper-V (Windows Server 2008 R2): extending platform support functionality, taking advantage of Hyper-V R2’s new shared cluster capability.
  • Network policies in configurations: allowing users to set custom firewall rules on the soft router in a configuration that allows virtual machines from within a LabManager configuration to connect to external IP addresses, outbound and inbound.
  • IP zones across multiple hosts: enabling IP-zoned LabManager configurations to be deployed across multiple virtual hosts.

Availability

VMLogix LabManager 3.8 is now generally available. For more information, visit http://www.vmlogix.com/Products/VMLogix-LabManager/.
