VMTurbo, the leading provider of software-defined control for cloud and virtualized environments, today announced that Clifford Chance, one of the world’s leading law firms, has deployed VMTurbo Operations Manager to control its VMware virtual infrastructure.
VMTurbo Operations Manager controls virtualized and cloud environments by assuring application performance while utilizing the infrastructure as efficiently as possible. The product’s software-defined control offloads and automates decision-making from operational staff instead of just collecting data and providing alerts.
Stewart Cooke, virtualization specialist at Clifford Chance commented, “Our virtual environment is growing rapidly to support our business and, as it does, it becomes more and more complex to manage. VMTurbo Operations Manager enables me to continuously optimize the environment to meet business requirements. It immediately identifies resource contention and tunes the environment to prevent performance issues.”
With VMTurbo Operations Manager, Clifford Chance has experienced several benefits, most notably time savings in controlling the environment. The automated decision-making in VMTurbo Operations Manager prevents performance issues from occurring, alleviating “firefighting” activities by the team. Further, resources are automatically allocated to drive higher utilization and take the guesswork out of planning for future requirements.
“VMTurbo Operations Manager is a product that actually delivers solid recommendations, ones that IT can take back to the business. It also can be automated to control the environment in a healthy state and provides us considerable cost savings,” stated Cooke.
“We are excited to be working with innovative customers like the team at Clifford Chance,” stated Andrew Mallaband, managing director for the UK and Northern Europe at VMTurbo. “As virtualization and cloud adoption grows, these complex environments require a new approach to controlling the infrastructure and maintaining the desired state. Progressive IT teams like Clifford Chance are adopting our software-defined control system to ensure performance, automate resource allocation, and improve utilization across applications and infrastructure alike – driving down the cost of compute and freeing up operational resources.”

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?
