Last month, VMware introduced the VMware Cloud Applications Marketplace alongside a new Bounty Program for Hyperic and an updated one for Spring Insight. With all this investment, customers are right to interpret that VMware is serious about developing a steady stream of new plugins that will help organizations place their cloud-based applications under management faster.
Today, VMware continues this pattern of investment in plugins by announcing 3 new plugins for use with vFabric Hyperic as well as open source Hyperic.
- Microsoft SharePoint. This new plugin provides support for SharePoint 2007 and 2010. The SharePoint plugin tracks SharePoint server metrics, SharePoint services, and statistics. When used with the already available plugins for IIS, .NET and the system plugins, the new SharePoint plugin allows Hyperic to provide a complete and comprehensive solution for monitoring SharePoint.

- Microsoft Active Directory Plugin. This plugin is an extension of a previous plugin that now includes support for Windows 2012 Active Directory. It also fixes issues that prevented the plugin from working on Windows 2008 R2. This plugin is compatible with Hyperic 5.x, and 4.6.x.

VMware plans to continue to develop and release plugins for Hyperic on the Cloud Applications Marketplace. For customers wishing to request new plugins, it is recommended that they open discussions in the Hyperic Bounty Program.
