Constant refinements and upgrades can cause virtualization challenges -- such as VM sprawl -- but management tools can help smooth the process.
Virtualized and hybrid cloud infrastructures can deliver new levels of agility when managed with the right tools. VMware meets the challenge with comprehensive management products expressly designed for the dynamic software-defined data center. They provide quality of service, operational efficiency and compliance by automating and providing visibility into every aspect of virtualized infrastructures and cloud environments, as well as the applications they support.
Modern hypervisors provide the means of allocating processor cycles, memory space and other computing resources to each virtual machine (VM). In theory, such granular control allows organizations to maximize server consolidation by fitting the maximum number of workloads into each server. When an application uses the same amount of resources over time -- regardless of the task or user load -- resource allocation is a simple and straightforward matter.
