Confio Releases IgniteFreeVM For Managing Databases on VMware.
Newest free version of Ignite gives DBAs visibility to Oracle and SQL Server operation on VMware
BOULDER, Colo. - May 22, 2012 - Today Confio Software debuted IgniteFreeVM, a completely free software tool designed to give database administrators (DBAs) expanded visibility into the performance of their bases on VMware. IgniteFreeVM is the latest in an array of award-winning Ignite products from Confio that enable DBAs and virtual machine administrators (VMAs) to manage and improve the performance of their Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase and DB2 databases on VMware.
IgniteFreeVM is quick to install with an easy download and has zero impact on the monitored systems, yet it is powerful enough to provide a view of the VMware server and storage layers critical to an enterprise database operation. For DBAs unsure about the interaction between databases and VMware, IgniteFreeVM offers a no-cost, no-impact and simple solution to assure them that the VMware server does not impact their databases.
"IgniteFreeVM is a natural extension of the Ignite performance management tools suite," said Don Bergal, chief marketing officer for Confio. "With an increasing number of enterprises taking advantage of the benefits of virtualized servers, we're finding a similar number of DBAs and VMAs who are requesting simple tools to help them ensure the same high-quality database performance on their VMware platforms as on physical servers. Because Confio is a trusted advisor to our DBA customers we developed IgniteFreeVM based on their immediate concerns - ensuring they can view many of the same performance metrics on VMware as in their physical environments."
IgniteFreeVM offers some of the critical functionality of IgniteVM, the industry's leading performance management solution for VMware. The free version is focused on real time interaction between the database and VMware, while fully licensed IgniteVM extends the visibility to weeks and months, and adds advanced reporting and alerting features.
The release on IgniteFreeVM comes on the heels of the recent introduction of Ignite 8.2, which offers DBAs custom monitoring charts, new dashboards, expert tuning advice and more.
IgniteFreeVM is available for download today. For more information about Confio's solutions for DBAs, please visit www.confio.com.
