Automate and optimize virtual resources
Centralize management and control of your virtual machines
Optimize virtual environments for performance and resource availability
Integrate process and resource management to reduce costs
Tidal’s adapter for VMware enables you to optimize resources and associated costs of your virtual machines. The adapter works through the VMware API to take control of the embedded scheduler activities and integrate them in overall business processes.
Through the Tidal integration, you can:
As an alternative to the adapter, you can run a Tidal agent in virtual machines. The agent is installed on the target and serves as a delegate of the Tidal Master to perform tasks.
A key benefit of this approach is that you can add the virtual machines to Tidal’s Agent List so it’s available to perform work.
Agent lists in Tidal enable you to assign a group of machines to handle a workload. It’s easy to do dynamic load balancing by increasing or decreasing the number of machines doing work. The result – improved resource management and reduced costs.
