Data center software provider Opsware ( announced on Wednesday the company's strategy for managing complex virtual server environments at the company's annual user conference, OPSWorld, held this week in San Jose, California.

During an opening keynote Opsware CEO Ben Horowitz demonstrated solutions for automating the management of tough IT assignments from VoIP networks to configuration management databases and discussed the little understood challenges of managing virtual servers.

Opsware also unveiled the longer-term roadmap for automating the management of virtualized IT environments, which utilizes Opsware's data center automation software. Using Opsware's strategy, customers would be able to discover and map virtual environments, create virtual servers, track and manage physical and virtual relationships, manage across multiple virtualization platforms and automate the lifecycle of a large number of virtual servers.

"Virtualization has the potential to deliver tremendous cost savings, both from better hardware utilization as well as through the ability to standardize software stacks across heterogeneous environments," says Tim Howes, CTO of Opsware. "However, you can only achieve these benefits, and avoid huge IT management nightmares, if you automate the management of virtualized environments. Opsware offers greater capability than anyone to do this today, and the roadmap we're announcing will deliver comprehensive capabilities suitable for even the most complex global enterprises."

Opsware recently announced it could provide customers with an integrated solution for data center automation.
