  • Administration – Specifically Provisioning/Decommissioning Lengthy turn-around time to get done and ties up administrator Overallocate resources and hold them for too long VM Sprawl/Monitoring/Performance Don’t know where VMs are and what resources are used Under-utilization, over-utilization of physical resources Can’t identify source of resource contention Physical to Virtual Migration Migrating physical servers to virtual servers Migrating VMs due to periodic replacement of physical resources Chargeback Need to know the exact resources in use by a VM to accurately bill the users If not known, users likely to request more resources and keep longer than necessary Backup and Recovery Wider risk - if a physical server with some number of VMs becomes unavailable May be paying more for licenses if using a backup client on each VM May be exceeding backup windows and/or not backing up all VMs Business Continuance/Disaster Recovery BC – planned downtime causes most service interruptions DR - Speed of recovery, reliable recovery, and non-disruptive testing Configuration Management - Updating/Patching VMs Need to know what VM is located where and whether or not it has been updated Able to automatically and quickly update/patch VMs
  • Managing in a virtualized environment introduces new considerations. For example, there are new items and relationships that need to be taken into account that are not present in dealing with physical assets. (use slide bullets to explain further)
