Through the Hall of Innovation, JPMorgan Chase is happy to recognize emerging technology companies that are helping us deliver differentiated technology solutions,” said Larry Feinsmith, Head of Technology Strategy and Partnership Development within the Office of the CIO at JPMorgan Chase. “We continue to experience significant value through our engagement with early stage companies like VMTurbo, and our relationship has been mutually beneficial to help develop their offering to meet the technology needs of large enterprises.

First launched in 2010, VMTurbo’s Operation Manager is now used by more than 9,000 enterprises and cloud service providers worldwide, including JPMorgan Chase. Deploying VMTurbo contributes to IT staff productivity savings of up to 20 percent and improvements in resource utilization of 20 to 40 percent – which converts to significant operational and capital expenditure benefits. 89 percent of VMTurbo customers surveyed realized value within three months of deploying VMTurbo, with 25 percent realizing immediate value within three days of deployment.

JPMorgan Chase’s selection of VMTurbo to proactively manage their VMware environment is a testament to the strength of our solution,” said VMTurbo CEO Ben Nye. “Working together, we have successfully helped them transition from allocation-based to utilization-based capacity management, thus allowing their IT staff to fully optimize their operations and IT investments across the organization.”

VMTurbo believes that software-driven control of virtualized and cloud environments to assure workload performance while utilizing virtual and cloud infrastructure assets as efficiently as possible is the future of IT as a service,” said VMTurbo founder and president Shmuel Kliger. “This recognition by JPMorgan Chase underscores the market need for a solution that transforms IT Operations.”
