Virtual Improve Virtual Server Utilization
Having already moved lower-risk applications to virtual servers, many organizations hesitate to virtualize their I/O-intensive, mission-critical applications supported by Fibre Channel SANs.
Until you move the critical applications to virtual servers, you cannot gain the full benefits of virtualization in the data center. Server-focused monitoring tools alone are not sufficient to provide the necessary performance insight into both physical and virtual infrastructure.
Optimize virtualization performance, utilization and availability with VirtualWisdom
VirtualWisdom improves the performance of virtualized and cloud-based applications by analyzing real-time SAN I/O traffic data. It monitors virtualized servers, network switches, storage arrays, and all of the connections between them. Real-time and historical trending data provide essential insight into problems for fast resolution.
Enterprises that deploy the VirtualWisdom platform experience dramatic benefits, including:
- Substantially higher application performance and SLA adherence
- Significantly higher server utilization and consolidation ratios
- Dramatic improvements in IT staff productivity via reduced troubleshooting time
- Higher revenues by lowering the risk of application downtime
- Faster virtualized application deployments
With this level of insight into performance and availability, you can move critical applications to virtual infrastructures without the risk of performance degradation.
Start with a SAN Health Check
A great way to get started with Virtual Instruments is using our SAN Health Check and Scan Service. The Health Check surveys all levels of connectivity to identify Fibre Channel communication issues and likely sources of performance problems and infrastructure failure.
By identifying the root cause of performance and infrastructure problems, the SAN Health Check service improves virtual infrastructure availability, performance, and resource utilization.
