Achieving Business Performance Goals Through Virtualization Management Best Practices
Source: Enterprise Management Associates
Virtualization is a key technology that is changing the way system hardware is used. It is also changing the way desktop environments are delivered, and how users interact with core systems and applications. Outcomes from virtualization include improved system utilization, reduced downtime, improved business continuity, and better service level achievement. However, there are significant inhibitors to a successful virtualization deployment. Specifically, the management and monitoring software that comes with the common virtualization platforms is not enough to meet the business or technical goals of virtualization. It does not provide the cross-domain metrics for technical administrators to effectively monitor and manage performance on a wide scale.
