Cut Data Center Costs Like AWS:

Managing The Economics Of Your Virtualized Data Center

Virtualization has enabled organizations to dramatically reduce the cost of delivering compute services through the consolidation of hardware and data center facilities; however in most virtualized data centers today there are significant opportunities to avoid unnecessary costs as organizations scale out their virtual IT estate.

VMTurbo as a Cloud Control Plane

Software-Driven Control for the Software-Defined Data Center

The Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC) has the potential to extend the agility, operational and capital benefits that virtualization has brought about by extending its reach throughout the datacenter stack. The ability to configure the datacenter “on the fly” alone however, will not fully deliver on those benefits to enterprises and service providers. In this paper, we outline the need for “Software-Driven Control” – the intelligence or “control plane” that can take advantage of these new software-defined capabilities.

Workload Rightsizing

Automatically and Continuously Optimizing Workload Configurations in Your Virtual Environment

It’s so simple to add resources to a virtual machine to thwart performance issues that it’s easy to end up over-provisioning in the virtual data center. Similarly, with initiatives to increase virtual machine density and gain greater efficiency of virtualized infrastructure, it’s just as simple to have resource shortfalls that could lead to performance degradation or outages. This white paper covers workload rightsizing in virtualized data centers, and VMTurbo’s capabilities in making specific recommendations to maximize infrastructure efficiency and remediate performance risk issues.

Assuring Performance in VDI Deployments

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) holds great promise for end-user computing teams to centralize management and maintenance, lower operational costs, improve security, and deliver flexibility to mobile workers across a range of delivery form factors and devices. With a recent survey reporting that 46% of VDI projects are being stalled due to cost and performance issues, it is imperative that engineering and operations teams have a control system in place to assure VDI performance with economical use of the infrastructure for these initiatives to be successful.

Aligning Virtualization and Storage Management

One of the biggest challenges in virtualized infrastructures impacting application performance, is the ability to manage resource contention in the underlying storage infrastructure. A common approach to address these challenges is to over provision storage platforms with I/O and disk capacity, but this is a trade off, which leads to a higher cost per gig of storage allocated to every virtual machine. In this whitepaper, we explore these challenges and how to holistically control and optimize storage in a virtualized datacenter.

Reducing the Costs of Delivering Compute Services in VMware vCloud Director Environments

VMware’s vCloud Director has created tremendous potential for Service Providers and Enterprises to deliver agile & cost effective Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) through its ability to automate the self provisioning of virtual data center service offerings, by customers. Having automated self-service provisioning, the next wave of opportunities for cost and performance optimization lie in operations management. This document positions how VMTurbo delivers “Unique Business Value”, addressing significant gaps in VMware’s vCloud solution offerings.

Top Purchase Considerations for Virtualization Management

Many organizations have hit the critical “scaling” stage of their virtualization initiatives – moving past simple consolidation initiatives and taking a “virtualization first” stance on IT expansion. Chances are that size, complexity, and dynamic workload demands are creating new challenges for operations staff, making if difficult to keep pace. This paper proposes purchase criteria for virtualization management solutions.
