Optimizing Virtualization Management With Automated Application Discovery

Executive Summary

Effective management of virtualized IT environments requires understanding how virtual machines, hypervisors and other critical elements fit into the broader context of IT service delivery. Achieving that level of understanding can be especially challenging in dynamic virtual environments where change is nearly constant and there is no 1:1 mapping between physical servers to applications. Without accurate information about the current state of the application relationships that exist in the virtual infrastructure, managing the virtualized IT environment can become a complex and time-consuming process. As such, automated discovery of these relationships is critical, and automated assembly of data into information gives one much-needed visibility into - and understanding of - IT services running across the VMware vSphere virtualization platform and physical systems.
