IDC Vendor Spotlight: Requirements for Effective Virtualization and Private Cloud Management
Increasing numbers of large-scale enterprise IT environments are deploying virtualization and private cloud infrastructure architectures with the goal of reducing costs, improving service levels, and enhancing business agility. To fully realize these potential benefits of virtualization and the cloud, IT teams need to implement new types of systems management solutions that are just as dynamic and adaptive as the virtualized cloud environments they are managing.
ManageIQ IT Cloud Management™ for Private, Public and Hybrid Clouds
Managing private and hybrid clouds requires new management capabilities which need to be tightly integrated to ensure operational efficiency, resource optimization and high availability.
ManageIQ Support for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV)
Organizations are seeking higher performance, scalability and trying to lower the cost of virtualization and private cloud computing. As a result they are adopting open, cost-effective solutions like Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) in addition to their existing platforms. As these enterprises evolve from single-vendor virtualized infrastructures to heterogeneous private and hybrid clouds, they need tightly integrated cross-platform management capabilities to ensure highly reliable, secure and elastic cloud services.
Managing Virtual Desktops in the Enterprise
From initial deployment to ongoing operations, the VDI environment is complex and if not effectively managed can result in service outages, user dissatisfaction as well as higher resource and operational costs.
ManageIQ Increases Business Agility by Enabling Self-Service
Businesses are demanding increased agility and are seeking empowerment—self- service from their IT organizations. They want the ability to self-provision, self-manage and operate their own systems and services without the delay and the involvement of the IT organization.
