Beyond Server Consolidation: Managing and Optimizing Your Virtual Data Center
You've consolidated your servers to a virtual environmentâ?¦.Now what? Virtualization brings a host of new management challenges. How do you manage the rapid growth of virtual machines without restrictive IT policies? How do you automate IT chargeback reporting so your business units and departments are charged accurately for their use of virtual resources? Without effective virtual infrastructure management, organizations often fail to realize the full benefits of virtualization and achieve a sub par return on investment. The demand that server workloads place on available virtual resources changes over time. Organizations must monitor and rebalance workloads between physical and virtual hosts to make their mixed data center environment work as one. This session will discuss the role of ongoing capacity and workload planning, forecasting and anywhere-to-anywhere workload migration in helping organizations successfully manage and optimize the virtual data center.
