JAMS Enterprise Job Scheduler Enhances VMware
Harry Reisenleiter, VP Communications
11 Nov 2009 MVP Systems Software, Inc., the leading provider of batch job scheduling software, announced today that JAMS Job Scheduling software adds efficiencies and enhances business processing in VMware environments. VMware environments face unique challenges in maximizing the return on investment. While virtualization is part of the effort to reduce costs, and improve the efficiency of IT resources, the management and control of VMware tasks are often left to manual intervention. Aligning VMware with other key IT processes quickly becomes a necessity.
While VMware automates the virtual environment, business processes are still contained in both physical and virtual environments. VMware Management Tools don’t provide the necessary integration with IT processes running in the physical world. Gaining an enterprise wide view of dependencies and relationships between VMware tasks and other applications, databases, and platforms is not possible with VMware tools.
JAMS represents the next generation of batch scheduling and workload management solutions. By automating VMware tasks and other key processes in JAMS, IT managers have an enterprise wide view of all business processes. Organizations worldwide are leveraging JAMS to address dozens of VMware tasks and issues, such as:
- • Power State Management
- » Power Virtual Machine On
- » Power Virtual Machine Off
- » Suspend Virtual Machine
- » Reset Virtual Machine
- » Reboot Virtual Machine
- » Shutdown Virtual Machine
- » Query Power State
- » Reboot ESX Host
- • Backup Management
- » Create Snapshot
- » Revert to Snapshot
- • Inventory Control
- » Create Virtual Machine
- » Clone Virtual Machine
- » Rename Virtual Machine
- » Delete Virtual Machine
- » Create Consistency Reports
- • Performance Monitoring
- » Create Performance Reports
Having the right resources available is critical to improving efficiency. Idle virtual machines consume resources long after their required processes have completed. JAMS allows users to integrate power management with key business processes. JAMS also allows users to migrate business process to Virtual Machines where resources are available.
Backup requirements are critical for virtual machines. JAMS allows for VMware backups to be taken on both calendar and event driven schedules. Managing virtual machine inventory is made easy with JAMS. Virtual machines can be cloned or deleted alongside the business processes they perform.
