“Best 3rd party software for your vSphere environments,”
“…troubleshooting took too long because we had to call VMware support center in many cases. Runecast Analyzer changed all that”
“It’s like having a VMware technician 24/7 auditing your VMware environment, it's absolutely great!!!”
It’s official! You asked for it and you got it. New Runecast Analyzer 5.0 introduces proactive, actionable insights for Microsoft Azure.
Gartner named Runecast a 2020 Cool Vendor in its May report. The report states, “I&O leaders should watch these emerging vendors, which offer new approaches to deliver technology performance insights."
The latest addition to Runecast Analyzer version 4.5 extends our current VMware and AWS best practices and security checks to a new area: Kubernetes (K8s) infrastructure.
Troubleshooting usually means reactively putting out fires.
With automated, proactive monitoring you see potential
fires before they erupt.
You’re only human, so you need a platform that audits your on-premises virtualization stack (vSphere, vSAN, NSX-V, NSX-T and Horizon), your public cloud resources running in AWS, Azure, your Kubernetes clusters wherever they run, and your VMware Cloud on AWS. Beyond this, there’s best practices analysis for SAP HANA on vSphere and also Pure Storage on vSphere.
Runecast Analyzer validates against VMware Knowledge Base (KB) articles, Best Practices, security hardening guidelines, security compliance standards/benchmarks, and other ‘sources of truth’. The HCL validation feature shows you any exposure to not only unsupported hardware, but also any unvalidated BIOS, drivers and firmware for what you have running right now. If you’re planning an upgrade, Runecast Analyzer can also validate your entire existing environment against an upstream version of ESXi, showing you where you might need to upgrade firmware, BIOS, and even replace physical hardware... See the state of your whole environment with a simple scan.
To get and stay ‘audit-ready’, all the time, with complex and continuously updated security compliance standards, you need proactive, automatic compliance checks.
Made by Admins, specifically for the most security-conscious Admins, Runecast Analyzer is your tool for automated alignment with VMware security best practices (from the VMware Security Configuration Guide – previously VMware Hardening Guide) and common standards like CIS Benchmarks, NIST 800-53, PCI DSS, HIPAA, DISA STIG 6, GDPR, and BSI IT-Grundschutz, with additional standards added regularly to Runecast’s capabilities. All of this happens securely on-premises (even offline), no data needs to leave your site – ideal for government, healthcare, and banking/financial verticals.
Best Practices are called such for a reason, and downtime
incidents occur regularly by not following them.
Runecast Analyzer automates the auditing of VMware best practices alignment for vSphere, vSAN, NSX-V, NSX-T, and Horizon. Outside of the VMware stack, there’s also best practices analysis for SAP HANA on vSphere, Pure Storage on vSphere and also Kubernetes – all from a single dashboard. Our customers tell us regularly that there is no better way to get and maintain smooth control of their hybrid clouds.
The raging torrent of logs generated by vSphere means that trying to track down the causes of issues is tricky if you're manually parsing.
You need a way to find the signal through the noise.
By reducing repetitive manual tasks of your team members, your team can manage more infrastructure per head, reducing what many (unfortunately) consider to be ‘standard’ data center costs. Runecast Analyzer’s automated issue recognition goes beyond ESXi monitoring software to scan your vSphere logs, revealing issues and steps to resolve them. It parses logs to provide real-time, actionable log insights and fit-gap analysis reports. This helps to reduce stress on operations teams, allowing them to reclaim their evenings and weekends.
Checking the compatibility of ESXi servers and I/O devices is crucial
to a successful upgrade.
Runecast Analyzer helps you to easily cross-check your entire estate of ESXi hosts for compatibility with the official VMware Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) via upgrade simulations – so you can plan your future vSphere upgrades and mitigate the risk of needing to troubleshoot after the fact. Just select the version you want to upgrade to and click ‘Simulate’, it’s that simple.
“It would be impossible for us to identify all these issues so quickly without Runecast. I ﬁnd the Runecast Analyzer dashboard much clearer and easier to use than VMware LogInsight.”
“It found issues I never knew I had. I also was able to quickly see the results of the logs without having to upload a file to VMware and wait for a tech to get back to me.”
Runecast Analyzer runs securely on-premises, helping you detect misconﬁguration and security vulnerabilities before they cause a data breach or downtime.
