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.
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.
