Overview:

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager delivers integrated VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V capacity planning, performance monitoring, VM sprawl control, VDI performance monitoring, configuration management, alert remediation, and chargeback automation—all in one affordable product that’s easy to download, deploy, and use. Start monitoring your VMs in about an hour.

But don’t just take our word for it. At SolarWinds, we believe you should try our software before you buy. That’s why we offer free trials that deliver full product functionality. Simply download and install the software and take a break while Virtualization Manager auto-discovers the virtual machines in your environment. When you get back, your monitoring environment will be waiting for you; complete with out-of-the-box dashboards, alerts, reports, and more! It’s just that simple!

Virtualization Manager at a Glance

  • Use real-time dashboards to easily identify and troubleshoot performance, capacity, and configuration problems
  • Identify VM sprawl, which helps you reclaim and optimize space and performance
  • Integrate with Server & Application Monitor to have complete visibility of the application stack— from app to VM to datastore—on the Orion interface
  • Use baseline thresholds for alerting on performance discrepancies on clusters, hosts, VMs, and datastores
  • Eliminate frequent log ins into vCenter and take action from within Virtualization Manager

hyperv
Hyper-V and VMware Management Dashboards

Troubleshoot problems faster with dashboards for performance, capacity, storage, and configuration.

migration
Identify and remediate VMware and Hyper-V problems

Remediate issues with vMotion, Storage vMotion, live migration, and storage live migration.

meantime
Decrease mean time to resolution (MTTR)

Decrease your MTTR by executing actions right from alert and sprawl screens.

capacity
VM capacity planning

Monitor, predict, and troubleshoot capacity bottlenecks. Run "what-if" modeling scenarios.

sprawl
VM sprawl control

Power off idle VMs, delete powered-off VMs, delete orphaned files, and delete snapshots to reclaim resources.

sizing
VM right-sizing

Display and change VMs with over- and under-allocated CPU/memory. Display and change CPU due to high Co-stop.

Features:

Heterogeneous Virtualization Management
Manage both VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V environments from a single pane of glass.

Virtualization Performance Monitoring & Management
Proactively monitor and analyze virtualization-specific performance problems in VMware and Hyper-V environments.

Full Application Stack Visibility & Contextual Awareness
Get complete visibility of the Application Stack Management Bundle for across-the-board contextual awareness of performance issues.

Virtual Machine Management Actions
Integration with the Orion platform gives you virtualization management actions, such as power on/off, suspend, and reboot a VM, as well as the ability to take and delete snapshots.

Migration Management Actions
With VMware vSphere Storage vMotion you can migrate VMs to a different host. Also, VM disks can be migrated to a different datastore or shared cluster volume using Storage vMotion.

Intelligent Script-Based Automation
Execute management actions through customized scripts for maximum optimization of virtualized resources.

Alert Remediation
Configure an alert to trigger a management action based on set thresholds

Enhanced Virtualization Metrics
Integration with the Orion platform gives you more VM metrics data. Get access to features in Orion, such as role-based access control, Web-based reporting, alerting, improved virtualization management, and a synchronization wizard.

VDI Performance Monitoring & Management
Monitor Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) performance, quickly troubleshoot issues, and easily plan VDI rollouts.

VM Right-Sizing & Capacity Planning
Manage, plan, and optimize VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual infrastructure capacity.

Virtualization Dashboards
Get at-a-glance insight into the performance, capacity, configuration, and usage of your virtualized infrastructure.

VM Sprawl Control
Find stale, zombie, and over-allocated VMs, add or remove CPU and RAM, and delete VM’s orphaned VMDKs.

Virtualization Performance Alerts
Quickly discover and act on performance issues using flexible, out-of-the-box alerts within Virtualization Manager, which triggers alerts when a VM fails to respond during the expected interval. With the integration into Orion, you can now set dynamic thresholds from baselines, and get alerted when your virtual appliance is about to reach warning or critical states.

Visibility into Virtual Machines
Get complete visibility into all your virtual machines, whether they are managed, stand-alone in Virtualization Manager, or in SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor or Network Performance Monitor.

Virtualization Configuration Management
Track VM and host configurations over time to determine if your virtual environment configuration is performing optimally.

Virtualization Dependency Mapping & Historical Forensics
Map dependencies and perform forensic troubleshooting and problem analysis.

Virtualization Chargeback & Showback Automation
Govern and chargeback/showback IT, infrastructure, and Cloud services.

Integrates with Application Stack Management Bundle

Integration with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor
When you integrate Virtualization Manager with SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor, you can see a dashboard view of your applications’ health and status, as well as all dependent virtual server, host, cluster, and datastore information that supports the application and its virtual server.

Integration with SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor
When you integrate Virtualization Manager with SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor, you can see a dashboard view of the user experience and overall performance of internal (CRM, ERP, intranet) and customer-facing Web applications. Drill into website load times and page load speed by location, waterfall charts for heaviest page elements, and more.

Integration with SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor
Virtualization Manager integrates with SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor to give you a more detailed view of your virtual disks. You can drill through a datastore all the way to the LUN and array level.
