VMLogix Updates Virtualization Platform



VMLogix has released a new version of VMLogix LabManager, a tool that lets development, test, and support teams build, snapshot, share, and deploy production-like environments on-demand across virtualization platforms.

The newly released Version 3.8 adds support for network policy configurations and deployment within IP zones across multiple virtual hosts. This release also adds support for VMware vSphere 4 virtualization infrastructure and integration with VMware vCenter Server, formally VMware VirtualCenter, as well as extended support for Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2.

New features of VMLogix LabManager 3.8 include:

  • Support for VMware vCenter Server 4.0 and VMware vSphere: integrating with VMware vCenter Server 4.0, LabManager supports a lab with VMware vSphere or VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3 hypervisors on the virtual hosts. The support for vCenter Server in LabManager allows administrators to benefit from platform management capabilities such as vMotion, DRS, HA and resource pools.
  • Updated support for Microsoft Hyper-V (Windows Server 2008 R2): extending platform support functionality, taking advantage of Hyper-V R2's new shared cluster capability.
  • Network policies in configurations: allowing users to set custom firewall rules on the soft router in a configuration that allows virtual machines from within a LabManager configuration to connect to external IP addresses, outbound and inbound.
  • IP zones across multiple hosts: enabling IP-zoned LabManager configurations to be deployed across multiple virtual hosts.

VMLogix provides virtual machine management tools designed that let software companies and IT organizations use virtualization platforms for consolidating test lab infrastructures, automating the software build and test process, and for managing the staging and delivery of applications into production.
