VKernel Case Study: HOVENSA
With VMware, it became very easy for HOVENSA to deploy new servers that the company needed to be cognizant of VM sprawl to make sure that resources are continually allocated properly. However, the VMware deployment worked so well and it was so easy to add new virtual machines (from two weeks of provisioning to just minutes) that HOVENSA started to experience VM sprawl and now had an immediate need to keep ahead of resource allocation.
With this need, HOVENSA employed the VKernel Capacity Bottleneck Analyzer virtual appliance to continually monitor shared resource (CPU, memory, and storage) consumption and ensure proper resource allocation.
