HotLink Unifies Virtual Machine Management

Michael Vizard

As the virtual machine landscape continues to become more diverse, the need to find a way to manage multiple virtual machines from different vendors is getting more apparent.

To address this issue, HotLink has unveiled a HotLink SUPERvisor for VMware, which makes it easier to create a plugin for any virtual machine management framework that will allow that tool to see and manage virtual machines from another vendor.

In the first instance of the company's technology, HotLink is making it possible for vCenter from VMware to manage Hyper-V virtual from Microsoft, XenServer from Citrix and KVM from Red Hat, all of which have been gaining market share as of late. But HotLink CEO Lynn LeBlanc says the company plans to support a range of virtual machine environments and management platforms.

LeBlanc says that in this day and age it makes no sense to require IT organizations to acquire multiple management tools for each virtual machine they need to support. The underlying Transformation Engine technology developed by HotLink allows them to choose the management platform they prefer and apply it to all the virtual machine platforms in their environment.

Pricing for HotLink SUPERvisor for VMware starts at $25,000.
