Virtualization Technology News and Information
eGroup Launches eBook: "Succeeding with Cloud Management: Restore Order. Prevent Chaos."

Virtualization has become so easy that everyone from consumers to enterprise IT departments are making use of cloud-based technology. In fact, products from companies like VMware make implementing the basic benefits of the cloud almost trivial. According to eGroup, the ease of implementation, however, can often times be the kiss of death as little attention is paid to actually managing these clouds once they are stood up.

So, as IT leaders contemplate their next course of action to transform from a useful, but unwieldy set of utilities into a well-managed enterprise-level cloud, eGroup addresses each of the questions below. A working solution is provided that, if implemented, can lead to resolving the problem and reducing the associated costs:

  • Do you know which divisions of your organization are using cloud resources today?
  • Does IT "own" all cloud instances, or do departments seek out their own?
  • Can you tell what resources your cloud instances are actually consuming? Are they too big, too small, or just right?
  • Is your ability to spin up a new cloud resource measured in minutes, days, or weeks?
