ToutVirtual Announces Support for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Virtualization

ToutVirtual, an emerging leader in optimization and performance-management software for virtual computing infrastructures, today announced that its VirtualIQ suite of products now also supports Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V virtualization.

The VirtualIQ suite of products is designed to support virtual server room operations through three stages of virtualization -- design, deploy, and deliver stages -- helping users make correct decisions for virtualization optimization along the way. The suite of products allows users to compare how various virtualization platforms, such as Hyper-V, perform running different applications and then provides visibility and policy-based control in managing the Hyper-V based environment. VirtualIQ suite of products supports multiple virtualization platforms for an apple-to-apple comparison and provides all essential decision-making data in a single, integrated web console that is simple to install and use.

ToutVirtual is partnering with Microsoft as an Independent Software Vendor (ISV).
