Xangati Platform Update: Automated Storm Remediation, ServiceNow ITSM Compatibility, Native Hyper-V Support

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 11, 2016) - Xangati, a Silicon Valley hybrid-cloud infrastructure performance management innovator, announced today a platform update to the Xangati Virtual Appliance (XVA) architecture that features: automated storm remediation functionality for virtualized and VDI infrastructures; native support for Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor-based virtualization environments; and ServiceNow integration, so that XVA trouble tickets and storm alerts can be more easily shared to ServiceNow's ITSM (IT service management) portal.

With the latest XVA release (XSR12U3), virtualization system administrators are now able to remediate CPU and Memory performance issues by automatically balancing workloads across vCenter hosts within XVA. Leveraging XVA's real time key performance data calculating capacity planning (right-size investments) and efficiency optimization (cost reduction opportunities), IT professionals can prevent and remediate virtualization performance degradation. Xangati's Efficiency Index, now a standard attribute in XVA's main scorecard, measures the extent to which available capacity (CPU, Memory, Storage, Network Interface) is fully utilized.

"Xangati's new functionality means that for a solutions provider like CMI, we now have the ability to run a true managed service performance analytics practice with service-level agreements based on definitive metrics for MTTR (mean time to resolution)," said Jeff Chang, President, Chicago Microsystems, Inc., whose firm has deployed Xangati in large public education virtualized environments.

Key Features of the XSR12U3 release include:

  • CPU & Memory contention storm automated remediation is now supported
  • Microsoft Hyper-V enhancements: XVA can now run natively within Hyper-V while monitoring multiple hypervisors
    • Xangati now runs on Hyper-V, in addition to be able to manage it
    • Xangati now reports "CPU Wait Time Per Dispatch" for Hyper-V
    • Xangati supports multiple SCVMMs to accommodate larger infrastructures
  • Deep support for NetApp Storage Systems configured in Cluster-Mode is added
  • IT Service Management notifications and metrics are now easily discoverable by ServiceNow and Splunk
  • XVA's storm-tracker utility GUI has been enhanced for scale and ease of use
  • A new Executive Dashboard for XenApp environments is optional
  • XenApp 6.5 and Zone Controller logs are now included in XVA Visual Trouble Tickets
  • XVA install/upgrade and setup workflows have been enhanced

"Xangati is moving closer to its long-term vision of autonomic infrastructure management that delivers an automated way to stave off complex degrading conditions and v-storm contentions, in addition to end-to-end, closed-loop orchestrated visibility to real-time performance indicators," said Atchison Frazer, VP-Marketing, Xangati.
