VKernel Capacity Analyzer goes head to head with VMware CapacityIQ

Posted by on July 20, 2010 in Tools, VMware | 0 comments

After a recent release of a comparison chart from VMware marketing it appears that VKernel is also taking the gloves off. In the past the two parties seem to be playing nice and VMware was not actively marketing the CapacityIQ product. But VMware seems to be on the attack now and is no longer going to concede this segment to third parties. I recently received the email listed below from VKernel as their response to VMware’s actions, They feel their product stands up against VMware CapacityIQ and is willing to offer administrators a challenge.

Hi There,

You may have seen a recent VMware marketing sheet comparing VMware CapacityIQ to VKernel’s products.¬†We are flattered by their attention!

So here is our challenge: download CapacityIQ from VMware and do the same for Capacity Analyzer. See which one more accurately shows current performance bottlenecks in your VM environment or predicts future bottlenecks.

If we lose, dinner is on us from Omaha Steaks, or we will make a $100 contribution to a charity of your choice.

Either way, you will end up with a full belly or a VM environment free of performance problems.

Best regards,
