How Runecast Analyzer works for IT System Admins

Built by Admins, for Admins, Runecast Analyzer operates securely on-premises (with no data leaving your environment) and is super-easy to deploy and scan.


Our founders, themselves IT system administrators, experienced that around 90% of issues occurring in virtualized environments had already been documented in Knowledge Base articles, forums, and other public resources – but it wasn't humanly possible to keep on top of all this information. With this in mind, they had a vision to build real-time, automated insights for mission-critical IT environments.

The result: Runecast Analyzer

Runecast Analyzer’s patented AI engine converts industry sources of information into machine-readable data. This data is processed on the Runecast Analyzer appliance, which then scans your VMware and AWS environments for hidden problems, deviations from best practices, and non-compliance with the security frameworks that you select. The appliance is provided as an industry-standard OVA, and you can be up and running with actionable insights within minutes.

The Runecast AI Knowledge Automation (RAIKA) technology gathers and parses information from publicly available sources of data, then uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and human expertise to translate this into machine-usable data. This data is then used to analyze configuration and logs within the environment.

Runecast Analyzer supports VMware (vSphere, vSAN, NSX, Horizon), VMware Cloud on AWS, and AWS Public Cloud.

Main benefits of Runecast Analyzer

Hardware Compatibility

Automate hardware compatibility against VMware's HCL.

To replace hours of work previously spent matching hardware/firmware/drivers with the HCL, Runecast Analyzer shows you the compatibility with one click.

It runs a rapid, automated analysis using the latest HCL for your servers and I/O devices.

ESXi upgrade simulations show even future compatibility against the HCL, so you can fix any issues even before they happen.

Security Compliance

Get & stay ‘audit-ready’, all the time.

Runecast Analyzer automates security auditing of your AWS & VMware environments toward industry standards: VMware Security Hardening Guide, CIS Benchmarks, NIST, PCI DSS, DISA STIG, HIPAA, BSI IT-Grundschutz, and more. Runecast gives you the confidence to say e.g. “We have DISA STIG compliance”, and then shows you when you start to drift away from that status.

The best part is that Runecast Analyzer runs securely on-premises with real-time automated insights, so no data needs to leave your site.
