Maintaining End-to-End Service Levels for VMware® Virtual Machines Using VMware DRS And EMC Navisphere QoS
Feb 5, 2008
With the increasing deployment of VMware® ESX Server for mission-critical applications, it becomes even more important to maintain the performance of these applications in virtual machines. The complexity of virtualization, especially when server and storage resources are shared across multiple components, makes it more difficult for an administrator to detect and solve performance problems.
Using CLARiiON®’s Navisphere® Quality of Service (NQM) product and VMware’s Distributed Resource Scheduler allows you to maintain application service levels in virtual machines. This greatly minimizes the time and resources needed to manage and fix performance issues.
