KVM based virtual infrastructure management suite, with clustering and image inspection
The capability to snapshot a VM and create a revision history enables restoring it to the previous known state.
Create a private cluster of VMs, with a configurable connectivity to the external world, especially useful for test beds.
Optimize disk utilization
Avoid data duplication across similar images.
Configure VMs to start automatically when the host server comes back online.
Look at the installed packages on a VM image without having to start it.
Rest assured that you have secure access to your VM console.
USB device redirection
Supports redirection for USB devices like USB storage, printers, scanners and others.
Compare VM images and identify package differences effortlessly.
EigenServ supports Windows Directory and Open LDAP directory services for user logins.
EigenServ chooses a suitable host from the pool of available hosts for provisioning, based on local policies.
Create multiple host pools and assign them to user groups.
Make a VMs console available to all users in view (read-only) mode.
Savings on capital expenses for hardware
Buy less costly/powerful (may be thin client) desktops.
Due to EigenServ's storage optimizing technology, one needs to buy 50-70% less storage than required by the virtual machines.
Fast and slim backup.
Build clusters and grids at a low cost without having to invest in a farm of physical machines.
Savings on hardware and software maintenance
Use of thin clients for desktops will save the maintenance charges.
In the case of using old desktops for desktops it is easy to get cheaper maintenance contract for the desktops.
Lower maintenance expense.
Reduction in power and cooling expenses
Lower capital expense.
Upto 70% cost reduction is possible due to very low power consumption by the thin clients and reduction in cooling requirement.
The desktops do not need significant computing power and hence cen be replaced with thin clients. They do not need any cooling.
Maximize access to licensed software
Expensive licensed software are installed only on a few machines. EigenServ facilitates time shared access to such machines.
Work across multiple platforms with ease
The advantages of virtualization have been leveraged here to provide you with an easy access to machines that run different/identical operating systems at the same time.
All virtual machines, with their revision history, can be viewed and managed from a single web console.
Search across virtual machines
Can search for VMs not only using attribute tags, but also by software packages installed in them.
Lets you build clusters and grids using virtual machines.
One click audit reporting
Provides a very intuitive reporting feature. Administrators can now extract interesting auditing data for all kinds of reporting.
The accountability for a machine can be traced to specific users instead of the organization.
Going green and discharging social responsibilities
Enables the organization to play its role in addressing the challenges of global climate protection by offering more energy-efficient computing.
Offers up to 70% savings on annual power and cooling cost.
Increases the machine's life cycle by 80-100% thereby reducing the amount of e-waste generated by the organization.
