LEXINGTON, Mass., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- DynamicOps, a leading provider of automated IT service management software, was named by CIO.com as one of 2010's top 10 virtualization tools companies to watch.

DynamicOps' Virtual Resource Manager (VRM) software helps companies increase IT operations efficiency and accelerate business agility. VRM allows for the rapid creation and deployment of on-demand IT services according to established IT policies on shared compute resources (private or public clouds). This permits IT organizations to delegate control of the compute infrastructure through self-service, in a well-managed, closely governed, and automated fashion.  

"Many companies struggle to efficiently scale their virtual infrastructures," explained Richard Krueger, CEO of DynamicOps. "Our software enables organizations to accelerate virtual deployment and reap the benefits of a shared infrastructure in a cost efficient manner.  Making the CIO.com top 10 watch list certainly validates our efforts and recognizes the success we've had in the marketplace."

In the article, several virtualization experts provided insight into market needs. "Anybody who can fill the gaps the big guys don't in helping virtualization admins provision and control their infrastructure is worth a look," adds Mark Bowker, virtualization specialist at Enterprise Strategy Group.

The January 7, 2010 article said, "management tools still remain hotly desired by customers, a desire also noted in the 2008 and 2009 editions of CIO's Top 10 Virtualization Vendors to Watch."

One of VRM's important distinctions is its ability to look "at both server and desktop infrastructures as well as across VM platforms," according to the article.

It also cited DynamicOps' start from Credit Suisse, which developed the virtualization management software in-house to meet its own needs, as different from most software vendors. Typically, software companies begin with a technology idea; DynamicOps began with software that was commercially used in production at four Credit Suisse data centers worldwide for more than two years.

Credit Suisse first deployed virtual infrastructure in 2005 and realized that while virtualization improved resource utilization and business agility, it also increased operational complexity.  Because there was no commercial product to meet this need at the time, the global finance company developed VRM. The software was in production managing thousands of virtual desktops and servers before DynamicOps was launched in 2008.

VRM is now used by companies across many vertical industry segments to manage infrastructures as small as a few hundred virtual machines to tens of thousands.
