mValent Updates Integrity Product for Virtual Environments
New Virtual Automation Module brings more configuration management capabilities for virtual environments
mValent Inc. this week expanded its mValent Integrity product with the addition of the Virtual Automation Module.
mValent Integrity is an application configuration management tool that works on both physical and virtual environments. The product lets users monitor current configuration and code settings and schedule changes to those settings, as well as help companies maintain compliance with regulatory standards.
The addition of the Virtual Automation Module adds more virtualization-specific capabilities to the existing Integrity product, allowing users to manage virtual images, repurpose virtualized software and, according to a company press release, "customize and instantiate virtual environments with appropriate versions of code and configurations."
mValent CEO Joe Forgione said in the press release that the "sprawl" of virtualization has resulted in some new challenges that are typically absent in physical environments.
Virtualization, Forgione said, "has shifted the focus of management complexity from the server to the software and applications running inside the virtual machine, driving up exponentially the unique configuration and release management challenges faced by application and middleware support teams."
He added that the Virtual Automation Module "provide[s] a comprehensive solution for automating deep configuration management and audit of application environments running on virtual and physical servers."
