Accelerating Virtualization Adoption - Lessons From the Physical World


Virtualization adoption has hit a wall.  Recent research from IDG indicates that CIO’s are struggling to manage the complexity arising from virtualization adoption.  On average CIO’s interviewed only achieved 58% of their expected ROI (source: IDG research Nov. 2009).  As virtualized environments move from test and development into production environments supporting critical business services, management processes from the physical world need to adapt to support these new dynamic environments.

Business services with virtualized components are more complex to discover, monitor, manage, automate, and troubleshoot. EMA notes that a typical virtualized deployment includes approximately 11 different platforms, technologies, and vendors. This collision of complexity creates a severe management challenge.
