AVG Technologies NV : Business Releases VMware® ESXi Service Module
March 2015 by Marc Jacob
AVG Technologies N.V. announced the immediate availability of its VMware® ESXi service module for the AVG Business Managed Workplace remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform. The new service module is an easy and cost-effective way for partners to extend their ability to manage customers’ virtual networks remotely via the AVG Business Managed Workplace multi-service management console.
Integrating the VMware ESXi service module into AVG Business Managed Workplace gives AVG partners the capability to perform additional, valuable services for their customers, including:
Real-time health checks - at-a-glance views of the health status of host hardware components as well as failure notifications help to greatly simplify monitoring of VMWare environments
Early alerting - automatic notification when VMware snapshots exceed pre-set thresholds allows service providers to take pre-emptive action on issues long before the end customer is aware of them
Storage status reports - ready access to the past 7 days’ data store space in granular detail makes it easier to troubleshoot storage issues of what is consuming excessive space on the data store
Routine management functions - such as support for a series of standard activities including remote power on, off, pause of virtual machines; create and manage snapshots; remote access to the host console; as well as the automatic discovery of any existing VMware host and guest devices and flagging them as opportunities to manage more devices in the end customer environment AVG Business Managed Workplace already delivers virtualization capability through the Microsoft® Hyper-V service module. Today’s addition of the VMware service module gives services providers a wider ranging capability in the virtualization space. For example, as they roll out virtualization services to customers, Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can use AVG Business Managed Workplace to quickly and easily manage those virtualized architectures. MSPs new to AVG Business Managed Workplace can have the added functionality of the VMware and/or Hyper-V service modules included within their overall subscription.
The AVG Business Managed Workplace VMware service module is available immediately.
