Akorri Customer SandRidge Shares the Secret to Increasing IT Virtualization Efficiency at VMworld 2010

LITTLETON, MA--(Marketwire - August 18, 2010) -  Akorri, Inc., the leader in virtual infrastructure performance and capacity management for the dynamic data center, today announced that its customer, SandRidge Energy, Inc., a rapidly growing independent natural gas and oil company concentrating in exploration, development and production activities, will present how Akorri BalancePoint® software helped increase their IT Virtualization Efficiency at VMworld 2010.

SandRidge deployed server virtualization over two years ago and has virtualized 60% of its application environment (including test and production applications). Today, over 140 machines are running on nine physical hosts supported by NetApp storage. The complex environment made it challenging to troubleshoot performance problems using the existing element management tools. When performance problems occurred, SandRidge consulted four different tools to resolve issues, which took a few systems engineers and up to a day to review data and find the "needle in the haystack."

Cameron Han, Infrastructure Operations Supervisor at SandRidge Energy, Inc., will discuss how SandRidge's IT department was able to learn how to quickly determine the root cause of performance issues, reduce problem resolution time, and proactively optimize infrastructure performance.

Who: Cameron Han, Senior Systems Engineer at SandRidge Energy, Inc.
What: SandRidge Energy Increases IT Virtualization Efficiency
When: August 31, 2010 at 3:30 p.m.
Where: VMworld 2010, Moscone Center, San Francisco 
Session ID: V18113, Track: Virtualization 101

"BalancePoint is the only tool we found that can decipher our virtual machines, storage, and operating systems together, and we like that it will proactively notify us of potential performance bottlenecks," said Cameron Han.
