Automating Datacenter Management: Consolidating Physical and Virtualized Infrastructure
Source: IDG (International Data Group)
The deployment of virtualization technology for datacenter consolidation, cost reduction, and improved agility continues to accelerate datacenter adoption, spanning server, and storage, application, and client environments. Increasingly, IT organizations are adopting heterogeneous hypervisor environments, increasing complexity and the need for management. Virtual computing teams, operations executives, datacenter managers, and server and storage teams face increasing pressure to gain the expected ROI from their virtualization investments. The need to manage change, configuration, performance, and capacity management in an automated fashion continues to grow. This white paper examines the role of datacenter management solutions that automate cross-silo virtualization capabilities to lower virtualization TCO, increase infrastructure compliance, and deliver end-to-end service visibility across both physical and virtual infrastructures.
