Control VM Sprawl Before It Controls You

Jul. 15, 2008 11:45 AM
While organizations and IT staff continue to see the many benefits of implementing virtualization, the challenge of controlling virtual infrastructures is quickly arising as a top management priority. Virtualization benefits are offset by issues such as security, administration, increased costs, compliance and configuration management. Managing Virtual Machine (VM) sprawl is of growing concern to organizations as they grow their VM environments. Traditional management tool and security systems do not work well in this space, and virtualization vendor tools are more focused on deployment than management. Emerging technologies for implementing and enforcing policies, detecting and tracking VMs and managing the entire deployment process, are helping organizations gain better control over their virtual infrastructures without having to resort to manual systems, which often are expensive and error prone. Using real life examples, this presentation will discuss the sources of VM sprawl, the dangers inherent in it and present best practices to address these issues.
