Tidal Software Announces Enterprise Job Scheduling for VMware

Enterprise Scheduling for Virtualized Environments Enables Resource Utilization and Smooth Functioning of Business Processes

Tidal Software announced the availability of Tidal Enterprise Scheduler Adapter for VMware. This scheduling solution for VMware Infrastructure increases efficiency by managing all jobs executing in a virtualized environment through a single point of control.

Jobs that drive business processes and jobs that manage the operation of the virtual environment can be managed more easily by using Tidal Enterprise Scheduler Enterprise Adapter for VMware. The solution gives IT a comprehensive view of schedules, jobs, and performance, which reveals the health of the environment as it relates to business processes.

"The Tidal Enterprise Scheduler Adapter for VMware effectively supports VMware virtualization and solves the problem of enterprise job scheduling for vital business processes running in dynamic virtualized environments," said Bernie Mills, senior director, alliances programs at VMware. "This solution enables customers to increase the efficiency of their operations. Tidal Software has extended enterprise scheduling to deliver added value through innovative technology that aligns with the business benefits of VMware virtualization, including lower capital and operating expenses, business continuity, strengthened security, and reduced energy consumption."

In a virtualized environment, host servers can support anywhere from dozens to thousands of virtual machines. The complexity of coordinating host availability through power management; preserving and restoring machine states through snapshots and configuring servers for specific tasks can impact business process performance - creating significant considerations for a job scheduler. An enterprise job scheduler that can access all applications and systems, while supporting the management and reliable operation of virtualized environments, is essential to successfully executing business processes.

"Albany International uses VMware to drive down operational costs and increase flexibility in the data center," said Jeff Pardi, manager of enterprise data services at Albany International. "Integrating Tidal Software’s Enterprise Scheduler and VMware Infrastructure allows us to link and orchestrate the execution of critical batch processes and our virtualized environment. Tidal Software’s unique VMware Enterprise Adapter enables us to easily automate both business and data center processes, helping us to increase automation, reduce costs, and further drive our vision of a virtualized computing environment."
