WebEx: Server Sprawl in the Data Center: Managing Virtualized Environments

Large enterprises are looking to drive down IT costs by optimizing server utilization in their overcrowded data centers, and virtualization has emerged as a key strategy for doing this. However, implementing virtualization in an IT estate brings additional management complexity. The dependencies between business applications, virtual machines and the supporting infrastructure become too complex to manage efficiently, administration costs rise, and SLAs are jeopardized.

Galen Schreck, principal analyst and virtualization industry expert with Forrester Research and Adam Kerrison, CTO of Tideway Systems, will guide participants on how to take the complexity out of managing virtual environments.

Participants will learn:

  • How to address the manageabilty issues virtualization creates
  • How to index and visualize virtual machines and map their dependencies to physical hosts
  • How to quickly and easily map dependencies from business applications all the way down to the underlying infrastructure
  • How to use this relationship data to drive server utilization and control server sprawl within a data center
