Nastel Technologies, a provider of application performance management and business transaction performance solutions for distributed and mainframe tiers, has launched a virtual appliance version of its AutoPilot M6 suite. Now, AutoPilot M6, TransactionWorks, AutoPilot for Middleware, and prebuilt APM governance policies will be available preinstalled in a virtual software appliance.

The AutoPilot M6 virtual appliance includes application, transaction, and middleware performance management in a single VMware image running a Linux Guest OS. Standard server management policies for virtualization can also be applied.

With the new virtual appliance, replacement and maintenance on hardware platforms running AutoPilot can be performed without service interruption. The AutoPilot M6 virtual appliance, along with its built-in grid support, also enables easy failover for 24x7x365 mission-critical environments and on-demand capacity as load increases.

For AutoPilot use in User Acceptance Testing (UAT), customers can move the appliance from UAT to production without concern for hardware configuration issues.
