Presentation Transcript: Unified Approach to Managing the Virtual Environment
Managing the virtual infrastructure end-to-end is becoming more challenging as virtual environments continue to grow and more data center elements meld into the cloud. Ideally, you want your management interface to have the ability to view, manage and report on the physical and virtual environment regardless of the operating system.

What you monitor and how you report the virtual and physical environment for the application requirements and service levels, along with aligning ITIL initiatives should be at the forefront of strategy.
