Achieving Virtualization Control with Workload Automation

Virtualization offers many benefits, but most IT organizations are missing out by focusing too much on the virtual infrastructure, and not enough on the mission-critical application workloads it supports. The result is inefficient operations, underachieved virtualization goals, and negative business impacts.

In this white paper, EMA VP of Research, Systems & Storage Management Andi Mann will highlight how enterprises can use advanced workload automation technologies in their virtual environments to:
  • Increase server utilization, VM efficiency, and server consolidation ratios
  • Reduce the time that senior staff are wasting on routine, mundane operations
  • Leverage virtualization and automation to provide 'just-in-time' cloud computing services
