Connection to Virtualization


Adopting the manager-of-managers concept from network management, ManageIQ’s EVM Control is designed to manage other management products, starting with VirtualCenter. It is designed to monitor VM activity from a module outside the VM itself, tracking patches, applications, users and other factors.

Why It’s Significant

Founded in 2006 and launching products only late last year, ManageIQ is one of a rush of startups moving into the virtualization market with products designed to enhance existing VM products. ManageIQ followed the market, starting with support for Xen and VMware and promising support for Microsoft’s Hyper-V this year.

Key Products

  • EVM Insight (VM monitor and and analyzer)
  • EVM Control (configuration, policy and activity management)
