by Justin Hughes
SAN JOSE, CA — ControlUp made the ControlUp Console available to customers of VMware Cloud™ on AWS. VMware Cloud on AWS unites VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide groups consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. ControlUp provides total visibility, Machine Learning assisted analytics and quick troubleshooting to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.
Ricky Trigalo, VP of product management for ControlUp, said, “ControlUp’s long history in ITOps monitoring and troubleshooting, by leveraging VMware and AWS, makes us well-suited to ensure best user experience as well as fast root cause analysis for our mutual customers’ data center and cloud workloads. The validation of ControlUp on VMware Cloud on AWS allows customers to grow their on-premise cloud infrastructure on-demand with new vSphere-based cloud resources on AWS, managing, monitoring and remediating their local VMware infrastructure and the remote vSphere resources offered by AWS in a transparent fashion for end users.”
With ControlUp, vSphere administrators can swiftly eye application performance issues across multiple layers — from the hypervisors and datastores to connection servers and VMs, even to specific processes. Using real-time performance data, ITOps teams can detect and remediate the root cause of an issue, using the ControlUp console. ControlUp provides VMware administrators access to a rich set of contextual management actions that allow proactive troubleshooting of data-center related issues. Moreover, ControlUp seamlessly aggregates data for historical analysis and offers a plethora of out-of-the-box reports including HW virtual and physical resource consumption, topology flow, application activity, user action, user experience, system health and licensing.
Sean Whetstone, Head of IT Services, REED, commented, “Probably the most cost effective monitoring tool I have ever purchased in my 30 years within the IT industry. Does what it says and for an incredible price. ControlUp is a no brainer.”
