Traditional approaches to infrastructure operations management are simply incapable of keeping pace with the dynamic nature of today’s virtual environments. In an effort to avoid performance degradation and downtime, IT organizations are relying on IT management tools to monitor the environment and alert administrators to out-of-policy conditions. Unfortunately the usefulness of such tools in today’s virtual data center – where there are greater interdependencies between systems, and the rate of change with respect to workload requirements is difficult to predict – is limited.
This whitepaper examines the unique requirements of today’s virtual data center and the approach VMTurbo takes to maintain the optimal equilibrium. This game-changing approach begs the question, “why are we chasing today’s problems with yesterday’s tools?” and answers it with a thorough look at VMTurbo’s free market economy model.
