Shavlik announced the beta release of IT.Shavlik.com, a cloud-based IT management service that helps businesses manage their physical and virtual machines from any location, any time of the day or night. All at the push of a button — no setup, no agents to deal with, no databases or web servers, just sign in and go.
IT.Shavlik.com beta delivers:
- Asset inventory of physical and virtual machines, the ESXi Hypervisor and software applications
- Assessment of missing patches for both physical and virtual infrastructures
- Analysis and reporting of Windows 7 implementation readiness
- No agent setup required.
Within minutes, IT administrators will find physical and virtual machines they didn’t know they had and uncover software applications they didn’t know were installed. According to customer feedback, this level of asset discovery is critical in today’s world of distributed systems and rapidly growing virtual machine technology. Due to shrinking IT budgets and staff, however, it is more and more difficult to get a handle on all of the systems and software accumulating on networks.
“Business operations need to be up and running 24×7 and that means identifying and managing all the machines and software on the network,” said Mark Shavlik, CEO, Shavlik Technologies. “Too often managing all these moving parts means IT spends too much time managing hard-to-use software and a systems management infrastructure. By delivering these IT management services from the cloud, we’re eliminating both cost and complexity in our on-going quest for simplification of computer management.”
