Server Virtualization Monitoring Requires Objective Storage Visibility
Server virtualization has caused dramatic changes to the data center's storage infrastructure. In many cases, it has driven the first purchase and implementation of a shared storage system. In others, it has created a situation where performance or capacity of their shared storage is a problem, again, for the first time. To address these issues, data centers of all sizes should look for a storage monitoring and management tool that goes beyond the capabilities of the vendor software, especially if the data center is moving toward a virtualized server environment.
