Xcedex launches virtualization planning software

US-based Xcedex has launched the next version of its X_Factor virtualization planning software.

By CBR Staff Writer

Xcedex said that X_Factor enables users to plan and document virtualization projects using data collected with CollectorX, a virtual appliance that consists of a data collection engine. Candidate selection, exclusion or inclusion, modeling and storage planning decisions are performed using X_Factor, a web-based analysis portal.

According to Xcedex, X_Factor assists with the generation of a virtualization plan that provides the user with an action plan for implementation. This automates many time-intensive tasks such as a manual or clipboard approach to IT infrastructure inventory, manually reviewing data from multiple sources, and using the results to produce incongruent data for review.

The benefits include finding ‘low hanging fruit’ candidates to be virtualized, exclusion of certain candidates that are not optimal for virtualization, reduced data center complexity, increased agility and resource utilization, and reduced capital and operating expenses, maintained Xcedex.

Chris Taylor, president and CEO of Xcedex, said: While many other products currently in the market address either a front-end assessment capability or management application for virtualization infrastructure, Xcedex’s X_Factor is targeted at real-world scenarios that put the control and decision-making capabilities in the hands of the user.
