Free registration required

Executive Summary

Virtualization offers compelling business advantages. It can reduce the Capital Expenditures (CapEx), give the user greater benefits from resources that they have already invested in, and give them more flexibility in applying those resources to the business services that are most critical to their enterprise. However, because virtualization introduces management complexity into an already complex environment, it can also drive up Operational Expenditures (OpEx). The key to getting the benefits and avoiding the risks is obtaining detailed visibility into all the elements and interdependencies of their virtual infrastructure. Traditional, manual techniques of mapping IT environments won't work - they are error-prone and cumbersome, and the results are incomplete and quickly out of date.
