Virtual environments are common in most data center infrastructures because they are nimble, easily deployable, and much more efficient than traditional physical environments.
Unfortunately, that ease of use can result in server sprawl: the out of control deployment and provisioning of virtual machine systems that creates a virtual environment too large for the storage and network resources that support the infrastructure as a whole.
So how do you control server sprawl? VMware’s vCenter Operations Manager can help bring order to the chaotic world of Virtual Machines!
Server sprawl ultimately reduces the overall performance and reliability of the corporate data center and isn’t easily traceable or remediated because of the rate that business units become dependent on the deployed virtual guests. Before you realize it, you’re requisitioning additional storage, network, and server hardware to support your ever-growing virtual environment.
