Netuitive supports Hyper-V
Netuitive Inc.’s automated root-cause analysis software has been integrated with Microsoft’s System Center management tools, meaning the tool now supports Hyper-V as well as VMware ESX virtual environments. The company claims its software can synthesize data streams from any monitoring and management source, using statistical analysis to self-learn, forecast and resolve IT issues before they affect quality of service, without requiring manual rules, scripts or thresholds. This is similar to the intellectual property VMware acquired from Integrien, Inc. last year, which has since been folded into vCenter Operations.
