Tidal Software Announces Enterprise Job Scheduling for VMware
Enterprise Scheduling for Virtualized Environments Enables Resource Utilization and Smooth Functioning of Business Processes

The Tidal Enterprise Scheduler Adapter for VMware integrates VMware ESX hosts with enterprise schedules, making it possible for users to define VMware jobs in the context of end-to-end business processes. The visibility and control provided by the adapter enable IT and the business side to make the fast, well informed decisions necessary to troubleshoot, trend, and analyze job scheduling operations and business utilization of the production environment.

The enterprise scheduler adapter integrates with VMware ESX and VMware Infrastructure web services and brings virtual machines and their hosts into the framework of the enterprise schedule. Users can view these jobs through the scheduler’s graphical interface and manage all enterprise jobs and relationships among them.

The Tidal Enterprise Scheduler Adapter for VMware increases efficiency through greater automation and minimizes manual operations, outages, misprocessing, and swivel chair integration:

  • VMware ESX actions can be scheduled directly from the scheduler. Users can schedule power, snapshot, and configuration actions within the VMware ESX hypervisor—rather than manually - as business conditions and workloads change.
  • Actions can be triggered based on power and performance metrics from VMware ESX. Users can trigger both VMware ESX and applications jobs based upon information on the power state and performance metrics. Examples include running a business process when resources are available, running a process when a VM is turned on and keeping a rogue VM offline.
  • Integration with Virtual Center for workload automation. This integration enables the scheduler to perform key virtual center tasks such as VM cloning, cold migration, hot migration, and storage migration. Users can automate and orchestrate cross-ESX server tasks that allow them to allocate VM host resources based on business process context and need. Resources can be directly applied to critical business process job schedules.

"This easy-to-use solution allows administrators to bring VMware scheduling into the enterprise scheduling framework through a straightforward process," said Wayne Greene, Tidal's vice president of product management. "VMware users have a unified view of their entire schedule regardless of the changing environment. Tidal's affordable solution helps reduce infrastructure and software costs through optimization of virtual resources and increased administrative efficiency."

Tidal is a member of the VMware TAP program. With more than 700 members worldwide, the VMware TAP program works with best-of-breed technology partners to provide them a comprehensive set of VMware technical and marketing services, support, tools and expertise to deliver enhanced value to joint customers.

Tidal Enterprise Scheduler Adapter for VMware is in general availability today. It supports version 5.3 and higher of Tidal Enterprise Scheduler.
