Posted By Ken Spears, Thursday, February 28, 2013

There are many tools in the market for monitoring and alerting on performance problems in virtualized environments. HP’s new Virtualization Performance Viewer (vPV) is different because it is focused on rapid trouble shooting and problem resolution. Some competitors can do this, but they are difficult to implement. In less than 20 minutes you can download vPV and see the value. This innovative product is competitively priced. It helps users resolve issues quickly, even when they are using multiple hypervisors.

HP vPV is designed to complement existing monitoring tools. The table below summarizes the functionality of vPV versus competing products and shows the advantages. Unlike other low-cost, easy to use virtualization management tools, vPV is more than a simple point product. It works with other HP BSM and performance management solutions to provide long-term benefits.
