Simplify and Automate Virtualization Management

Today’s IT department needs to become a strategic partner to the business and maximize the benefits of the virtualized data center. Most Software-Defined Data Centers (SDDC) are becoming hybrid, with a mix of physical, virtual and cloud environments to manage. Applications are also varied, being built on a mix of traditional and modern architectures, running both on-premises and in public clouds. And IT departments need to manage all this in a way that delivers more value to the business, faster, while maintaining control and reducing costs.

To support business growth, consistent management and automation of the virtual data center is a critical first step. Automating manual tasks frees time for IT teams to deliver more strategic value to the business. But you need a unified view across the whole stack, not static and siloed bits and pieces with each looking at different sections of your environment and requiring different skill sets and knowledge.

Our virtualization management gives you:

  • Consistent management with a unified view of your whole environment, integrated with vSphere yet extensible to SDDC components
  • Intelligent operations management that adapts to your environment
  • Built-in automation with guided remediation and fine-grained controls

Deliver speed and agility while improving control and efficiency with a unified virtualization management experience that preserves investment in existing tools and skills.
