Automate Patching of Virtual Machines and Hosts

Patching is one of the most significant pain points for every IT department, and virtualized data centers need automated tools to keep hosts and virtual machines updated. Without a VMware vSphere feature like VMware vCenter Update Manager, virtual machine proliferation could soon make it very difficult to maintain compliant environments.

VMware vCenter Update Manager lets you:

  • Reduce the risks associated with patching hosts by allowing fast rollbacks to a pre-patch stage
  • Eliminate application downtime related to vSphere host patching
  • Increase IT administrator productivity with unique automation capabilities
  • Increase flexibility by allowing delayed reboot of virtual machines

vCenter Update Manager is a fully integrated module of VMware vCenter Server. It does not require a complex installation or additional infrastructure.
