Virtualisation Field Day 6 – Quick Preview AppFormix

AppFormixI have been invited to a number of Virtualisation Field Day (sorry have to spell it the correct way) by Stephen Foskett, but for one reason or another things didn’t work out at my end.  The stars have aligned and I’m pleased to say I will be attending VFD 6.

All of the companies that are presenting are new to me, which makes things a lot more interesting, as a tech we like shiny new things!  The first of these is AppFormix.

What Do They Do?

According to the strap line on the website it’s ‘Analytics and Control for Cloud Infrastructure’.

From what I understand it’s a monitoring solution that has been designed from the ground up to work in either private, public or hybrid cloud environments.  The premise is if you choose their software then they can make your cloud more efficient, I guess they have an algorithm that looks at dynamic thresholds rather than static thresholds that measure compute and storage resources, but I will wait until the presentation to ask that question.

They key areas which are focused on are:

  • Capacity Planning
  • Resource Orchestration
  • Self Service IT

It will be interesting to see how they integrate with existing management and monitoring solutions.  Plus I’m keen to understand how compliance and security fits into the AppFormix model.
