NetIQ extends benefits of IT Process Automation to VMware environments

By Ingmar Apinis

NetIQ Corporation today announced the extension of NetIQ Aegis to VMware environments. By extending IT process automation and delivering integrated virtual-physical management and control, NetIQ Aegis helps organisations mitigate the risks of operational cost overruns, while enforcing consistency between virtual and physical management processes.

Boris Ivancic, regional director, Asia Pacific, NetIQ, said, 'Companies worldwide are increasingly turning to virtualisation to cut costs and improve efficiency however, without effective management and control virtualisation can introduce administrative burdens and increase organisational risk. Basic management tools aren't flexible enough to deliver the required level of integrated control, so by extending IT process automation to include virtual environments NetIQ is helping customers integrate virtual environments with existing change processes and management technologies. Ultimately customers will be able to ensure the cost savings, service delivery improvements and efficiency gains they're looking for in virtualisation.'

NetIQ Aegis allows VMware administrators to design workflows based on existing practices, standardise execution of technical policies and security settings, and automate snapshot management. Featuring out-of-the-box integration with ticketing systems, such as BMC Remedy, Configuration Management Databases (CMDBs) and other enterprise management tools, NetIQ Aegis allows IT operations to gain greater control of virtual environments, integrate virtual-physical management and reduce storage costs so that they can focus on core business priorities.

NetIQ Aegis allows organisations to create workflows based upon their existing processes, as opposed to one-size-fits-all automation. Easily modifiable workflow templates are also provided to:

  • Enable snapshot request and management - allows end-users to request, review and remove snapshots as required to minimise storage requirements.
  • Convert templates to virtual machines - provides administrators with a repeatable approach to maintaining and patching templates to reduce manual effort.
  • Find orphaned VMDK files - enables administrators to quickly identify orphaned files resulting from virtual machine removal to reduce disk usage.
  • Execute virtual machine request and management - captures requests with an easy-to-use email template to automate provisioning and management.

Availability and Pricing
NetIQ Aegis and the NetIQ Aegis Adapter for VMware vCenter Server are available worldwide today. List pricing for NetIQ Aegis begins at AU $27,000.
