Maximising ROI from data center virtualization and consolidation through end user performance management
The business case for data center consolidation is compelling as networks, applications and services become more complex, users become increasingly mobile and businesses need to reduce costs without compromising performance.
However, to realise these benefits organisations need to manage the consolidated architecture closely against performance metrics. Legacy performance management tools require multiple platforms and lack the necessary scope, perspective and timing to manage a consolidated environment. Additional complexities arise when applications are virtualised, making it difficult to measure performance from the end user perspective.
Effective, persistent management of the consolidated data center is the key to unlocking return on investment from the project.
Our New White Paper examines the challenges of managing performance in a consolidated and virtualised environment, from obtaining the data for management and business unit reporting to ensuring applications deliver on agreed SLAs.
