Task Automation• Reduce errors from manual processes across multiple areas of responsibility through the script-based administration of repetitive and complex tasks inherent in virtualization infrastructures.
Charts• The Chart tab in the Grid enables you to create customized charts. You can select different types like Area, Column, Doughnut, Line, Scatter, Stacked Area and Stacked Column. The horizontal axes labels hold the category and can be fed by everything that’s measurable.
Best Practice Filters• These filters allows you to easily perform daily checks of common faulty configuration issues like a Snapshot hunter, VMs with CD-ROM Connected and Hosts with NIC at Half Duplex.
PowerPack Management• A PowerPack is a collection of PowerShell scripts that are used to extend the Virtualization EcoShell administrative console. These scripts are stored inside of nodes, links or actions all of which are used to add functionality into the console.
