Dell has released an update to add VMWare and virtual desktop support to its Foglight virtualisation management platform.
The company said that the Foglight for Virtualisation, Enterprise Edition 6.8 would allow firms to better manage virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments.
Formerly known as Quest vFoglight Pro, the Foglight for Virtualisation platform allows administrators to manage and monitor performance on virtualised systems and cloud computing deployments over the local network.
The company said that the 6.8 update will aim to improve VDI management by adding support for VMware View, the virtual PC management platform VMware offers for VDI workstation hosting.
Dell hopes that the update will compliment Foglight's server virtualisation components to provide firms with an end-to-end management platform for their virtual infrastructure.
"Foglight for Virtualisation, Enterprise Edition, shows Dell’s commitment to offering a solution that encompasses all aspects of virtual infrastructure performance monitoring and management, built on a platform that can scale as the infrastructure grows," said Dell general manager for performance monitoring Steve Rosenberg.
"This new release expands Foglight’s ability not only to monitor the additional infrastructure area of VDI, but also to correlate metrics from VDI with performance for applications, the virtual layer, the network, and underlying servers and storage."
In addition to the virtualisation update, Dell is releasing a new version of its Foglight for Storage Management platform. The company said that the update will be offered as both a stand-alone platform as an add-on to the Foglight for Virtualisation platform and will add additional reporting capabilities for storage platforms.
