Paper Overview
Virtualization has tremendous advantages over physical environments, but in the move to virtual, the organization often lost some things it took for granted. One of those things is clarity of what is going on, where, and with whom.

IT executives are increasingly facing the fact that there really is no good way of telling what virtualized applications are running, where they are located at any given moment, which business unit owns them, when they were created, when they should expire, which physical resources they are using and whole host of other questions. It is no longer easy to determine either what physical systems are doing or, more importantly, not doing.
