GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Grand Rapids, Mich.-based software developer Blue Medora, a leader in helping companies extend the monitoring and management capabilities of leading systems management solutions Oracle and IBM, announced the release of a much-anticipated update to its Oracle Enterprise Manager plugin for VMware.

The plugin is the first of its kind, addressing the needs of the growing number of companies that are moving more of their IT infrastructure to cloud-based solutions for better flexibility and efficiency. The plugin extends the Oracle Enterprise Manager environment by providing IT admins and DBAs a much deeper view into their systems virtualized through VMware than they currently have.

"We have been working with companies for years to develop software products that help them to get the most out of their enterprise management solutions, including Oracle Enterprise Manager," said Nathan Owen, Blue Medora CEO. "The Blue Medora Oracle Enterprise Manager plugin for VMware addresses a significant need in the marketplace for Oracle IT administrators who are using VMware as part of their virtualization solution by breaking through the wall to give them a deep view into their virtualized system through VMware."

Owen said the Blue Medora Oracle Enterprise Manager Plugin for VMware Feature Pack 1 is a market-driven release and includes features designed to maximize Oracle Enterprise Manager users' VMware functionality. The FP1 release includes:

  • A revamped user interface designed to provide a uniquely Oracle-centric view into the status and performance of VMware Virtual Machines, Hypervisor, and Datastore virtualization layers from a single view.
  • Automatic detection of Oracle Workloads running on managed virtual machines along with key performance statistics for a seamless experience between Oracle and non-Oracle assets.
  • Out-of-the-box expert recommendations and configurable thresholds tailored to the Oracle administrator's individual preferences that help quickly solve performance issues and virtualization incidents.  

"Systems management is rapidly changing, with more companies deploying cloud-based solutions like VMware as part of their infrastructure," said Owen. "Blue Medora is a game changer for the market because we can provide seamless integration between Oracle Enterprise Manager and critical virtualization systems and give organizations the full view of what is happening across their IT infrastructure."

Blue Medora Enterprise Manager Plug-in for VMware is priced according to the number of virtual machines to be monitored or managed. Blue Medora is also currently offering a limited number of free perpetual licenses for up to 12 virtual machines, including support and maintenance for 12 months, to companies interested in test-driving Blue Medora in their current Oracle Enterprise Manager environment.

Based in Grand Rapids, Mich., Blue Medora has developed a range of validated/certified integration products that extend the monitoring and management capabilities of IBM and Oracle's market-leading systems management platforms to the world's leading cloud, virtualization, ERP, CRM, enterprise directory, and messaging software.

Everyone wants the rainbow - reduced IT costs, scalability, continuity, flexibility, manageability, and innovation. But in order to get to that collaboration rainbow, you need the cloud! In this presentation, we'll cover three areas: First - the rainbow of benefits from cloud collaboration. There are many different reasons why more and more companies and institutions are moving to the cloud. Benefits include: cost savings (reducing on-prem infrastructure, reducing data center foot print, reducing IT support costs), enabling growth (ensuring a highly available, highly scalable infrastructure), increasing employee access & engagement (by having collaboration tools that are usable and available globally regardless of location there will be an increased connectedness amongst teams and individuals that will help increase both efficiency and productivity.)
