Managing a virtualized infrastructure requires visibility across all layers of your environment – from VMs down to the physical systems and storage that supports them. Please join SolarWinds for an integrated product demonstration of the new Virtualization Manager and Storage Manager products and learn how to achieve success in these environments.

• Identify VMware performance bottlenecks and get recommendations to fix hot spots across shared memory, CPU and storage resources.
• Take capacity planning to the next level by factoring storage and network IO into your capacity plans
• Pinpoint and resolve physical storage performance and capacity bottlenecks
• Use Virtualization Manager’s new Time-Travel feature to troubleshoot historical problems
• Manage VM I/O contention on your storage and its impact on meeting SLAs
• Forecasting shared storage capacity issues proactively

Also during this webcast we’ll demonstrate best practices and technologies from SolarWinds that help to conquer these challenges and ensure success in these environments.
