Embotics Offers Competitive Upgrade at Net-Zero Cost for VMware vCenter Lab Manager Users

Embotics Corporation, a pioneer in virtualization and cloud management software, today announced an upgrade program for users of VMware vCenter Lab Manager, which will reach its end of life this year and will no longer be supported by VMware effective May 1, 2013. Embotics V-Commander provides automated provisioning for test and development environments to allow IT organizations to become more dynamic and agile. Those teams can now upgrade their VMware vCenter Lab Manager licenses to Embotics V-Commander licenses at a net-zero cost, ensuring a supported platform for future development initiatives.

As VMware phases out support for the product over the next few months, users may find that vCenter Lab Manager no longer works if they upgrade to vSphere 5. Organizations could get stuck in aging environments unless they opt to migrate to vCloud Director or vCloud Automation Center, which are too complex and more expensive for most lab and development environments. To help users avoid this challenge, Embotics is offering Embotics V-Commander licenses at the same cost as existing vCenter Lab Manager maintenance and support. The Embotics Upgrade Your VMware vCenter Lab Manager program is available to users until March 31, 2013 and includes a free migration accelerator, as well as two days’ worth of Embotics professional services to get next-generation lab environments up and running.

“It’s always a challenge for an organization when a product they use reaches end-of-life. These organizations need options, and Embotics V-Commander is definitely a good option for users of vCenter Lab Manager,” said Stephen Galbraith, executive vice president engineering and technical services at Empowered Networks, a Toronto-based specialized systems integrator that designs, deploys and manages technical solutions for networks, labs and data centers. “Embotics V-Commander lets IT provision and optimize multiple test and development environments quickly and easily. It’s a simple and easy to implement option for vCenter Lab Manager users.”

Embotics V-Commander offers rapid provisioning, self-service, service catalogs, IT costing and chargeback, workflow automation, resource optimization and lifecycle management capabilities. Its Web-based lab management features include configuration management, waste reclamation and ad-hoc reporting, all from a single pane of glass. Embotics V-Commander reduces test lab capital and operating costs while giving lab users higher quality of service.

“Embotics V-Commander is one of the only on-premise solutions in the marketplace, and it delivers a range of lab management capabilities, including the ability to deliver self-service management and provisioning portals to end users in a safe, secure and automated fashion,” said Jay Litkey, CEO of Embotics. “Embotics V-Commander leverages existing virtualization investments and solves the broad challenges of the test and development environment. By offering this competitive upgrade to vCenter Lab Manager users, we’re empowering IT to deliver applications with greater agility and without losing their vital support services.”

The Embotics Upgrade Your VMware vCenter Lab Manager program also applies to those who have already migrated to vCloud Director or vCloud Automation Center for the purposes of lab management. The offer includes the substitution of vCenter Lab Manager/vCloud Director/vCloud Automation Center licenses with Embotics V-Commander licenses and price protection. (Customers will need to purchase service and support contracts from Embotics.) For those users unable to break out of their vCenter Lab Manager renewal pricing, Embotics V-Commander is specially priced at $299 per socket per year.
