13 October 2008 – MVP Systems Software, a leading provider of batch job scheduling and SaaS monitoring solutions, today announced support for VMware Infrastructure Toolkit. The combination of JAMS and VMware Infrastructure Toolkit increases your operational efficiency by enabling the automation of a virtualized environment.

Jobs and processes that manage the operation of the virtual environment can be managed more easily by using a combination ofPowerShell, JAMS and VMware Infrastructure Toolkit. This powerful combination gives IT a comprehensive toolset to monitor the health of the environment and dynamically change the environment in response to business requirements.

In a virtualized environment, host servers can support anywhere from dozens to thousands of virtual machines. An enterprise job schedulerthat can access all applications and systems, while supporting the management and reliable operation of virtualized environments, is essential to successfully executing business processes.

VMware actions can be scheduled directly from JAMS. Users can schedule power, snapshot, and configuration actions within the VMware ESX hypervisor as business conditions and workloads change.

JAMS can trigger actions based on power and performance metrics from VMware. Users can trigger both VMware and application jobs based upon information on the power state and performance metrics.

JAMS integrates with Virtual Center for workload automation. This integration enables JAMS to perform key virtual center tasks such as VM cloning, cold migration, hot migration, and storage migration. Users can automate and orchestrate server tasks that allow them to allocate VM host resources based on business process context and need. Resources can be directly applied to critical business process job schedules.

MVP Systems is a member of the VMware TAP program. With more than 700 members worldwide, the VMware TAP program works with best-of-breed technology partners to provide them a comprehensive set of VMware technical and marketing services, support, tools and expertise to deliver enhanced value to joint customers.
