Lanamark Launches Free Virtualization Readiness Assessment Service

Connects Enterprises to Leading Solution Providers for Comprehensive Virtualization Assessment and Implementation Services

Lanamark Inc., a global provider of virtualization capacity planning and IT assessment software, today announced Lanamark VReady, a virtualization readiness assessment service to help enterprises jump-start virtualization projects without upfront costs. The service enables customers to capture desktop and server workload trends, measure data center utilization and determine warranty coverage of existing servers.

Lanamark VReady helped us gain valuable insight into the overall state of our data center and assess our readiness for company-wide adoption of virtual infrastructure, said Ross Elliott, CTO of Accellos, a provider of supply chain solutions. We look forward to working with a Lanamark partner to help us with a detailed virtualization assessment and migration of virtualization candidates from physical to virtual machines.

Lanamark VReady allows enterprises to create a free readiness assessment, monitor desktops and servers for up-to ten business days and then obtain a VReady Assessment Report with a summary of data center trends. The report also provides information on the age and warranty coverage of servers so that customers can assess the risk of continuing to run workloads on potentially out-of-warranty hardware. To accelerate virtualization projects, customers can then upgrade to an in-depth VAssessment service delivered by Lanamark Solution Providers.

A comprehensive assessment is the first step towards designing a cost-effective virtualization solution for desktops and servers. We partnered with Lanamark because their assessment solution is completely hypervisor-agnostic and provides us with additional features and capabilities other vendors do not offer, said David Gibson, managing director of Computer Tech, a leading IT solution provider based in Houston, TX. Using data collected during Lanamark VReady, our experienced team of virtualization, security, storage and network specialists can help customers transform their physical infrastructure into the next-generation virtual data center.

Our mission is to help enterprises accelerate adoption of virtualization so that they can lower IT expenditures while maximizing the performance and availability of workloads. Lanamark VReady eliminates cost barriers for starting virtualization projects and enables customers to take a data-driven approach towards virtualizing their IT infrastructure, said Mark Angelo, CEO of Lanamark. Once armed with insight about their desktops and servers, customers are then able to tap into the tremendous expertise of Lanamark Solution Providers, who can help them design and implement optimal virtual infrastructure solutions.

About Lanamark VReady

Lanamark VReady is now generally available at www.vready.com. Enterprises can use the service for a free one-time assessment of up to 500 desktops and servers running Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems. Terms of service are subject to change without notice.
