Virtual environment monitoring

Physical vs. Virtual Environments

Virtual environments are, by nature, exceptionally dynamic entities, where Virtual machines are found to be constantly on the move between virtual hosts. Hence, processing and memory utilization, including all physical resources, are used in much higher levels than in traditional physical environments. Densities are higher, in storage, resource utilization, and servers and applications.

All of the above elements altogether make the virtual environment very messy, thus no human alive can effectively watch and compensate for every behavior in such an environment.

Virtual Environment Monitoring - A Must-Have

Each customer`s requirement is to know what's happening in their virtual environment in real-time, before end-users complain. So, all the demand is for a solution that makes complex- virtual environment easier to manage, without breaking the IT budget to get it.

On the other hand, the virtualized environment requires a solution that delivers features, required to meet today's demand for proactively assuring the availability of IT services. In addition, such an environment demands a strong support for a complex virtualized infrastructure. So the ultimate expectation is an Advanced, holistic monitoring solution that says "Yes" to all of the above requirements, by delivering cross-domain operational intelligence.
