PlateSpin has launched the next generation of its datacentre analysis and optimisation system, PowerRecon 2.0.
The company says PowerRecon 2.0 will equip datacentres with new levels of intelligence and analysis capabilities for consolidating and optimising resources onto virtual machines and blade servers. It adds that IT professionals in datacentres can use the system to automate the various stages of consolidation projects such as inventory, analysis and migration.
PowerRecon 2.0 collects remotely a variety of relevant hardware inventory data, resource utilisation and workload statistics that create the foundation for one-time consolidation or continuous server optimisation projects.
Features include identifying under- and over-utilised servers; generating time-based graphs of server workload, allowing users to consolidate; visualising host and virtual machine hierarchies for Microsoft and VMware virtual platforms; plus the ability to measure and analyse over 1,000 servers, providing users with visualisation of workloads and resources.
PlateSpin PowerRecon 2.0 is available now and is packaged on a per-use and on a per-server basis. A trial download is available at www.platespin.com.
