IceWEB has announced that its Virtual Machine DataCenter (VMDC) application significantly simplifies storage management for system administrators responsible for establishing and implementing storage policies in virtualized server installations. As noted by the company in this MarketWatch news release, with VMDC, Administrators can manage their virtual environment storage from a single location.
“Easily installed using standard system utilities, IceWEB’s VMDC provides a simple, point-and-click user interface that discovers all ESX or Xen servers and all Virtual Machines (VMs) on the servers. It also includes support for Microsoft Hyper-V, making it one of only a few storage solutions to support all major virtualization environments.
“‘The amalgamation of virtual machines, cloud computing, and unified data storage enables IT department professionals to be responsive to their user’s ever-increasing demands for more instant, accurate, customized data,’ said Ed Kraus, IceWEB Operations VP. ‘Our VMDC enables administrators to establish replication policies for each VM; quickly clone new storage-efficient VMs; start and stop VMs; and establish backup and retention procedures.'”
