Control Virtual Chaos: A New Approach for Managing Virtual Environments
With virtualization, datacenter administrators lack the necessary visibility to help them solve problems faced by their application owners. Capturing and storing all the relevant data at full fidelity is critical to truly understanding application performance, especially when you have mission-critical applications running in virtualized environments.
Along with capturing and storing, visualizing this data within the context of data from other technology tiers is critical to understanding exactly which events in which tier are causing problems and impacting performance. Correlating, trending and analyzing virtualization data in conjunction with data from other technology tiers such as storage, networks, and operating systems is a big data problem.
Only a big data technology can deliver the visibility required for this complex and transient technology landscape. This whitepaper discusses the visibility challenges facing today’s administrators and highlights a new approach to managing, reporting and analyzing the silos of big data generated by virtualized infrastructures.
