Akorri Inc., a provider of virtual infrastructure performance and capacity management for the data center, announced its new online ROI Calculator that analyzes potential savings in terms of improved productivity, increased infrastructure utilization, and reduced troubleshooting time by using BalancePoint to manage virtual and physical infrastructure environments.

IT administrators who manage virtualized server and storage infrastructures require new management tools like BalancePoint, says Akorri, stating that some of its larger are realizing savings of up to 300 percent by using BalancePoint to manage their dynamic data centers. Traditional server or storage resource management (SRM) software tools were designed to manage static, siloed physical resources and do not provide sufficient visibility into the dynamic virtual resources pervasive in today’s data centers, according to Akorri.

“As organizations continue to virtualize and evolve to cloud-based infrastructures, managing the complexity of these resources becomes critical to realize the benefits and deliver the return on investment of virtualization,” says Jim Comstock, vice president of marketing at Akorri. “BalancePoint’s real-time predictive analytics provide an intelligent, application workload to storage perspective enabling administrators to proactively manage the performance and capacity requirements of server, SAN and storage resources. Dashboards and monitoring tools don’t cut it in today’s dynamic virtualized environment. Akorri’s BalancePoint is the GPS of your dynamic data center assuring you don’t get lost as you travel into the clouds.”
