Uptime Software today released an update to its systems management software, up.time 5, created in close collaboration with VMware and its vSphere and vCenter Orchestrator offerings.

up.time helps companies that need to drive both performance and cost savings from their VMware infrastructure while ensuring a consistent quality of service by providing IT managers with an unobstructed view of the data center to efficiently manage distributed applications and global services levels while maximizing enterprise-wide IT resources.

The new capabilities announced today provide: %%Increased VMware efficiency though dramatic increases in VM density and optimized VM workloads

  • Automated incidence avoidance that reduces manual find/fix by automatically heading off reoccurring problems before they happen; deep and seamless integration with VMware vCenter Orchestrator makes building out automated problem avoidance workflows easy, reducing mean time to repair and required resources while increasing performance and productivity.

  • Fast problem isolation and resolution through intelligent alerting, easy pinpointing of root cause, and automated actions that can eliminate recurring outages in the future

  • Rapid VMware infrastructure growth requiring fewer resources by delivering an easy-to-use consolidation, monitoring, optimization, and automation solution that also helps reduce VM sprawl

  • Improved visibility and manageability of the entire infrastructure from a single console, including virtual and physical infrastructures and applications, and across multiple data centers
