VMTurbo & Amazon Web Services!

VMTurbo annouced the VMTurbo Operations Manager 5.2 availability through a Software as a Service deployment. The first partner in helping to bring it to market is Amazon Web Services (AWS) through the AWS Marketplace.

What does this mean for you?

Well if you’ve already deployed VMTurbo in your data center you know that all it takes is 15 minutes to download and deploy the control instance in your environment. But who likes to wait 15 minutes when you can have near instant control. 🙂

You can now subscribe to Operations Manager and deploy the AMI in less than 3 minutes! You can then start adding targets and getting actions to bring your data center to its desired state where application performance is assured while maximizing utilization.

How do you get started?

To spin up your own instance click here or go to the AWS Marketplace and search for VMTurbo.

On the Operations Manager product page click Continue and then on the next page click Accept Terms & Launch with 1 Click. Make sure you have a Virtual Private Connection (VPC) and a subnet set up between AWS and the data center you want to control. It is recommend to use a VPC with a Private Subnet Only and Hardware Access.

Once you verify in the EC2 console that your AMI EC2 instance is running and passed status check launch Operations Manager by opening a browser and typing in http://<Public IP or DNS > (for example: http://10.33.9.144/).

The initial Operations Manager login is

  • User Name: administrator
  • Password: instance ID (You can change the default login under the Amin tab)

Once in Operations Manager you can start adding hypervisor or cloud management targets.
