The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

Virtual Management Tools manage virtual machines (VMs) and virtual infrastructure comprised of many VMs. Virtual Management tools are becoming a “must have” for IT managers as infrastructure growing increasingly large, complex and geographically distributed. IT Central Station members proactively run data centers with the expectation of delivering scalable, intelligent Ops management. Utilizing Virtual Management Tools for data delivery runs the gamut from applications to infrastructure, and covers physical, virtual and cloud environments.

IT Central Station advocates choose Virtual Management Tools based on support reviews, user reviews, depth of a hypervisor integration, and the availability of APIs for automation. Dashboard customization is non-negotiable and IT Central Station DevOps teams are concerned with alerts, straightforward integration, ease of use and the ease of installation. The goal is to increase performance efficiency, keep costs in check and avoid disruption. Virtual Management Tools need to make IT Ops teams more productive or they are not worth the investment.

To streamline monitoring and smart alerts, storage, predictive analytics and guided remediation, a Virtual Management Tools system will simply and proactively manage the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). IT and DevOps prefer Virtual Management Tools because they offer agile visibility in one location across different applications. Virtual Management Tools integrate the physical infrastructure piece with the cloud and have more in-depth analytics.
