Cross-Platform Workload Management

Arthur Cole

Last month, I blogged about the growing need for cross-platform virtualization solutions, particularly in the areas of VM management and workload management.


CA and others are rising to the challenge, and now it seems we can add Novell to that list.


The company has unveiled a new version of its PlateSpin Workload Management system, which the company says supports the widest variety of OS and virtual platform configurations to date. The list includes 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows and Linux, as well as the XenServer, ESX and Hyper-V hypervisors, along with Virtual Server, ESXi and Xen integrated in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server environments.


The package consists of updated versions of the PlateSpin Recon, Migrate, Protect and Orchestrate modules designed to oversee profiling, migration, protection and management of server workloads across physical and virtual infrastructures. In addition to the enhanced platform support, key new features include new resource utilization data import capabilities and a simplified user interface.

Workload balancing across physical and virtual servers - how big is the need for balancing across physical and virtual servers vs say workload balancing for consolidated apps running on a single server - be it physical or virtual? Reply
