HiveIO, a company that transforms commodity data center equipment into an intelligent virtualization platform, recently released version 7.3 of Hive Fabric, an AI-ready fabric solution that enables organizations to deploy virtualization technology without the need for vendor complexity or specialists. The latest software release provides Hive Fabric users with increased operational capabilities to further reduce the time needed to support a virtualization environment while also maximizing the performance, capacity, and spend on existing infrastructure.
“Hive Fabric was developed with IT professionals in mind, helping them withstand common industry pain points like flexibility and usability,” said Dan Newton, CEO of HiveIO. “The solution has helped IT in a variety of industries exceed their business goals by creating a virtualization solution that works with users, not against them. We’re continuing to grow with a user-first mindset, and the launch of 7.3 delivers the new capabilities based directly on feedback and needs of current Hive Fabric users.”
Hive Fabric combines KVM hypervisor, software-defined storage (SDS) and networking, and virtual desktop management, into an all-in-one virtualization solution,eliminating the need for a multi-vendor, multi-contract approach. The new features within the 7.3 solution include Graphics Acceleration, Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Configurable In-Memory Storage and Hive Sense.
Unlike legacy platforms that require specialists to operate overly complicated systems, Hive Fabric utilizes an Intelligent Message Bus and intuitive user interface (UI) to show an all-encompassing view of a data center and its connected components in real time. This makes it easy for administrators to find and act upon vital information and reduce downtime.
“The Hive Fabric UI, coupled with the easy-to-use enhancements in 7.3, empowers administrators of all skill levels to manage the entire data center,” said Toby Coleridge, Vice President of Product at HiveIO. “Organizations can reallocate their highly-skilled specialists to other areas of the business to drive innovation rather than be bogged down with daily administrative tasks.”
