By now, every user of VMware’s vCenter Lab Manager knows that product is rapidly approaching its end-of-life date. VMware will cease to support it on May 1, 2013, and users might find that vCenter Lab Manager no longer works once they upgrade to vSphere 5. This leaves test and development teams in a bind. If they take VMware’s suggestion to move to vCloud Director or vCloud Automation Center, most of them will end up with solutions too complex and expensive for their needs. Embotics vCommander to the rescue!
With Embotics “Upgrade Your VMware vCenter Lab Manager” program, IT leaders may exchange their VMware vCenter Lab Manager licenses to Embotics vCommander licenses at a net-zero cost. With this upgrade, CIOs can ensure their organizations have platforms with support for future private cloud development initiatives. The program includes Embotics vCommander licenses at the same cost as existing vCenter Lab Manager maintenance and support, as well as a free migration accelerator and two days’ worth of Embotics professional services for qualified customers to get next-generation lab environments up and running.
Additionally, for those companies who have already migrated to vCloud Director or vCloud Automation Center for the purposes of lab management, they can swap out their vCenter Lab Manager, vCloud Director or vCloud Automation Center licenses for Embotics vCommander licenses and price protection. For those users unable to break out their vCenter Lab Manager renewal pricing, Embotics vCommander is specially priced at $299 per socket per year.
Embotics vCommander, one of the only on-premise private cloud management solutions in the marketplace, reduces test lab capital and operating costs while giving lab users higher quality of service.
To take advantage of the Embotics “Upgrade Your VMware vCenter Lab Manager” program, call 1-613-599-0494 or email us today, we’ll take care of you!

Like everyone else out there, Embotics is looking forward to the fresh start associated with the New Year. With this in mind, we are looking at what some of the private cloud management market resolutions should be in 2013:
When the “best of” lists come out later this month, it will be interesting to see where the term “cloud” falls among the most overused phrases of the year. There are good reasons for the frequency with which IT pros mentioned the cloud in 2012. There’s a lot of potential for positive business and IT change in infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS), but there has also been a lot of hype swirling around the nebulous cloud terminology.
It is all of that hype that could set the stage for cloud fatigue as we move into the New Year. To diagnose cloud fatigue, consider these questions:
