Ingram Micro New Zealand has secured initial sole distribution rights for Runecast Analyzer, a hyper-growth, patented and award-winning artificial intelligence technology that accelerates the performance of and helps to secure virtual environments.
Noting that Runecast Analyzer addresses known gaps in management frameworks, Ingram Micro enterprise software solutions business manager Adam Saunders said:
“The solution is complementary to VMware and a natural fit in our portfolio. Resellers looking to boost the value they add to end customers will find ready markets for Analyzer because it is easily implemented and demonstrates rapid value. It’s effectively like having an ‘automated technician’ continuously auditing VMware environments.”
Melbourne-based Runecast APAC Channel Sales Senior Director Andre Carpenter added:
“APAC has one of the world’s most virtualised IT environments, so there is considerable opportunity for resellers, particularly since VMware is the leading vendor here, and AWS is equally widely used.”
In addition to detecting misconﬁguration issues before they cause downtime, Runecast Analyzer automates compliance checks against VMware and AWS security hardening guidelines and common security standards such as CIS, NIST, PCI DSS, DISA STIG, HIPAA and BSI IT-Grundschutz, with more standards regularly added to its capabilities.
Carpenter also noted:
“Our software identifies problems and highlights exceptions by comparing your environment to a comprehensive and continually updated database of known issues and provides proven resolutions. There’s no longer any need to troubleshoot, diagnose or trawl through knowledge bases in search of answers – it’s a move from reactive to proactive management.”
As more companies move toward software-defined data centres (SDDCs), Saunders stated that Runecast offers a clear opportunity, particularly for managed and professional service providers.
Stressing that the software is rapidly installed – in less than a day – Saunders stated:
“The revenue potential lies in professional services rather than software margins. This is an ideal way to differentiate offerings and bring rapid, recognisable value to your customers.”
Organisations using Runecast Analyzer to mitigate service and security risks include Chevron, Erste Bank, Raiffeisen Bank, de Volksbank, Fujisoft, Scania, Avast Software, the NHS, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), and many more.
