How Runecast Analyzer works for IT System Admins

Built by Admins, for Admins, Runecast Analyzer is your new best friend

Runecast Analyzer is a software solution – built by Admins, for Admins – that saves time, mitigates risks, and ensures uptime and security compliance for VMware, AWS, and Kubernetes environments. It’s a:
  • Disruptive, patented solution that automates proactive analysis of logs, configuration drift, and security posture within your environment.
  • Simple, lightweight tool that operates securely on-premises (no data leaves your environment) to provide you with proactive remediation steps before any issues can lead to a PSOD or downtime.
  • Solution that is super-easy to deploy, displaying any issues in your mission-critical environment in less than 30 minutes.


Our founders, themselves IT system administrators, experienced that around 90% of issues occuring in virtualized environments had already been documented in Knowledge Base (KB) 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 technology converts industry sources of information into machine-readable data. This data is processed on the Runecast Analyzer appliance, which then scans your VMware, AWS, and Kubernetes 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.

Runecast Analyzer's automated insights for VMware vSphere, vSAN, NSX, and Horizon was expanded in 2019 to provide insights for AWS and in 2020 for SAP HANA, Pure Storage, and Kubernetes.

Main benefits of Runecast Analyzer

Hardware Compatibility

Automate aligning your hardware to VMware’s HCL.

To replace hours of work previously spent matching hardware 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, GDPR, ISO 27001 and more. Runecast gives you 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 organization.

Issue Prevention

Prevent issues before they turn troublesome – with real-time VMware, AWS & Kubernetes intelligence.

Manually troubleshooting (reactively) for vSphere, AWS & Kubernetes makes no sense – and it’s humanly impossible to do it well proactively.

Runecast Analyzer scans your vSphere, vSAN, Horizon, NSX-V & NSX-T, native AWS stack, and Kubernetes in minutes.

Log Analysis

Automate proactive issue recognition and resolution steps.

Our customers report up to 80% savings on troubleshooting and remediation time by using Runecast Analyzer’s real-time support intelligence.

Runecast Analyzer scans in real time for specific patterns in your vSphere logs.

As soon as log entries indicate an issue, Runecast Analyzer knows what it is and displays steps to resolve it.
