Akorri Announces Automated Predictive Analysis Features for BalancePoint

The software developer will be sharing its latest tools for virtualized infrastructures at VMworld in San Francisco this month.

Virtualization innovator Akorri Inc. has announced upgrades to its flagship software product, BalancePoint. The new software upgrades will add automated predictive analysis to help IT organizations prevent outages and bottlenecks in complex virtualized infrastructure.

The first in a series of predictive capabilities for BalancePoint is BalancePoint Predictor for Storage. It automatically detects issues that can lead to application outages.

In addition, the new BalancePoint software adds analytics and expanding heterogeneous infrastructure management via such new features as Disk Utilization, support for Microsoft Hyper-V, and expanded multi-vendor storage support.

Akorri will be showing off all the latest BalancePoint improvements in its booth (#1331) at VMworld in San Francisco this week.

At the trade show, attendees will be able to:

  • Demonstrate Akorri’s newest version of BalancePoint.
  • Receive a T-shirt that they can wear for a chance to win a new Apple iPad or GPS.
  • Hear Akorri customer SandRidge Energy Inc. present its success story after having used Akorri BalancePoint to help increase IT virtualization efficiency.

“As organizations continue to virtualize and evolve to private cloud-based infrastructures, the complexity and the contention for pooled resources is significantly amplified,” explains Jim Comstock, vice president of marketing at Akorri, “and the need for predictive performance and capacity management becomes critical.”

New features in BalancePoint include:

  • BalancePoint Predictor for Storage–Automatically detects physical or virtualized I/O workload “bullies” and “victims” and alerts on disk contention issues
  • Disk Utilization–Provides an intelligent early warning for stressed disks, warning against dangerously increasing loads on a disk
  • Heterogeneous Hypervisor Support–New support for Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere 4.1
  • Expanded Storage Support–Support for NetApp V-series, HP SVSP, HDS Dynamic Provisioning

Comstock adds, “With this new version of BalancePoint, Akorri delivers this critical functionality and significantly improves how storage resources are managed in today’s dynamic data center.”
