Virtual Infrastructure teams often find it extremely challenging to ensure that their virtual environment is properly configured to meet operational and security best practices - especially when more than one VMware vCenter management platform is involved. VMware vCenter Configuration Manager (VCM) - a key part of the VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite - is a full-featured configuration management solution that automates configuration management across virtual, physical and cloud environments.
Organizations can use VCM to continuously audit the configurations of VMware infrastructure (including VMware ESX®, ESXi, vCenter, vCloud® Director and vShield) as well as Windows, Linux and Unix operating systems. Configuration compliance can be maintained against internal standards, security best practices, vendor hardening guidelines, and even regulatory mandates.
