The goal of any good tool is to make your job easier. That means it should be easy to set-up and use, and it should make daily tasks simpler. When it comes to IT operations management tools (ITOM) and virtualization management, this hasn’t always been the case. HP is working to address this issue. We are introducing new FREE tools that you can download, install and begin using in minutes, not hours or days.
One of these tools is called Virtualization Performance Viewer or vPV for short. We did a recent survey of over 600 vPV users, and 92 percent said they installed and started seeing benefits from vPV in less than 30 minutes. We were glad to hear that, but we wanted users to see the benefits even faster. To help speed up your install, we created this short video. Now you can see just how easy it is to get up and running with vPV. You can experience “fun in 15 minutes” with vPV.
So easy even a marketing guy can do it
To demonstrate that vPV really is “virtualization management for dummies”, they asked me, the marketing guy, to do the demo. It really is easy to download vPV, install it, and begin using it very quickly. (OK, I’ll admit I had a technical expert helping me behind the scenes in the video.)
Anyway, if you’re a systems engineer, sys admin, virtualization administrator, cloud administrator or anyone else that needs to manage virtualized and cloud environments and troubleshoot performance problems, you’ll find this is a piece of cake. But don’t take my word for it; I’m just a marketing guy.
