Akorri and Taneja Group Share the Secret to Maximizing Virtualization ROI in the Dynamic Data Center

On-Demand Webcast and Podcast Discuss a Strategy for Getting the Most out of Virtual Infrastructure Investments

LITTLETON, MA--(Marketwire - November 30, 2009) - Akorri, Inc., the leader in virtual infrastructure performance and capacity management for the dynamic data center, announced today a new on-demand Webcast and Podcast titled, "The Secret to Maximizing Virtualization ROI in the Dynamic Data Center." In the Webcast, Dave Bartoletti, Senior Analyst, Taneja Group and Rob Strechay, Vice President for Strategic Accounts for Akorri, address IT professionals' concerns about assuring continuous performance for business-critical applications and planning for future capacity demands in their virtual environment.

"Organizations looking to succeed at optimizing their virtual infrastructures need to look beyond basic capacity management and toward developing a performance management mindset. Virtualized resources behave quite differently at run-time than their physical counterparts, but IT groups making the transition to virtual environments lack the ability to effectively collect and correlate complex performance data across multiple tiers in a virtualized application stack," said Dave Bartoletti of the Taneja Group. "These IT operations teams need real-time, rich cross-domain visibility -- into both the server and storage tiers, for example -- in order to make sense of and to balance the resource demands and performance requirements of mission-critical virtualized applications."

About the Akorri and Taneja Group Webcast

As virtualization technology matures and more mission-critical applications are virtualized, business application owners are becoming increasingly concerned about assuring continuous performance and planning for future capacity demands. Many IT organizations lack the required capabilities to optimally manage -- or even to effectively measure -- the performance of their dynamic, shared infrastructure to a level that would satisfy their business counterparts' service-level requirements. IT operations must adapt to the new management challenges of a dynamic, virtualized environment in order to build the confidence required to virtualize the highest-priority production applications. Fortunately, there is a proven strategy for IT to optimize virtualized infrastructure performance.

The secret is a proven combination of cross-domain analytics, rich metrics, and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that together enable high levels of utilization and performance optimization, at the lowest possible cost.

In this Webcast, Taneja Analyst Dave Bartoletti and Akorri VP of Strategic Accounts Rob Strechay will review the power of these analytics, why you need to be tracking and optimizing them today, and how to leverage them to get the most value out of your virtual infrastructure. Without breaking the bank, you'll learn how to:

--  Optimize utilization (CPU, memory, storage, network) to preserve your
    virtualization ROI
--  Monitor datacenter-level Key Performance Indicators to improve service
    levels and lower operations costs
--  Accurately predict future capacity needs with enhanced trending, to
    save more money later

Virtualization unlocks tremendous capacity and allows IT more flexibility, but these benefits can only be passed on to the business if performance is optimized and under control.

The presentation can be accessed in Webcast and Podcast format.
