Building a Flexible Virtualized Compute Environment
Moving into the virtualization sphere requires careful planning, management and deployment. Simply adding point tools and ad hoc applications to manage and monitor a virtualization environment may end up costing the organization more in the long run and expose it to risk. Lower performance can also mean lost business opportunity. Getting the most value from a virtualization initiative calls for a flexible compute environment that amplifies the value the business can realize from its IT resources.
This white paper looks at the challenges associated with virtualization deployments, such as managing workloads, and discusses the key components of a properly designed virtualized data center. It then presents innovative solutions that achieve the highest and most cost-effective virtualized performance — while aligning IT to business goals.
