Virtualization Management and the Dynamic Data Center: Five Ways to Extend the Value of Your Virtualization Platform
High capital costs of physical servers in the data center are a major problem for businesses. Virtualization platforms help by decoupling applications and operating systems from the underlying physical hardware, providing more efficient resource utilization. But when it comes to IT costs, capital expenses are only part of the equation. Consolidating servers through virtualization delivers some capital savings, but enterprises must still manage virtual machines which consume the same administration costs as physical servers.
To address these issues, enterprises need an environment where the management of virtual and physical machines is automated and resources are dynamically allocated according to service level agreements. Learn how to create this kind of environment with an automation engine that is built on the portability, flexibility and manageability of VMware.
