Managing Virtual Environments: Going Beyond Traditional Monitoring Tools
Although server virtualization offers plenty of benefits to businesses, it introduces many new complexities from an IT management point of view. To paraphrase Spiderman’s Uncle Ben - “with great flexibility comes great complexity”, and virtualization is no exception. Due to the dynamic and complex nature of virtual environments and their co-existence with physical and cloud components, IT administrators have to deal with a new set of challenges such as:
- Complex Root Cause Analysis
- Lack of Clarity into Transaction flow
- End-User Experience is Priority
- Capacity Planning becomes more Critical
This white paper discusses these challenges and why IT teams need to look beyond traditional monitoring tools if they are to overcome them. This paper also discusses the virtualization monitoring capabilities of ManageEngine Applications Manager and how it can be effectively utilized to manage virtual environments.
