What's Next After We Virtualized Our Servers? A Kusnetzky Group Paper

Share Article

Virtualization in the form of the use of virtual machine software isn't the panacea that many in the media seem to believe. While the use of this technology is very helpful if an organization's goal is consolidation to achieve some level of cost reduction, cost avoidance or, on occasion a more agile environment, its indiscriminant use creates new data center issues. The issues these organizations soon face are how to manage a growing list of virtual servers and how to rapidly and automatically deal with the growing network and storage access and management issues a proliferation of virtual servers creates.
