Managing VMware An Evolving Process

Discussion on VMware and Hitachi Data Systems and storage performance, management and data protection.

The siloed server/networking/storage management regime that is typical of IT operations groups is breaking down as VMware forces storage administrators to become more aware of networking technologies beyond Fibre Channel, and as server administrators become more knowledgeable about how storage performance impacts application performance. Siloed management groups are being replaced by management teams that have cross-functional competencies. Evaluator Group sees this as an evolutionary progression toward a holistic IT management style.
This paper introduces some of the areas being impacted and adopted, including: Cross-Domain Performance Management, Data Protection for Virtual Environments, How Automated Tiered Storage is Impacting the convergence and new approaches to Storage Management.
