Are Virtualization Management Systems Adequate?

Virtualization management systems are causing some grumbles among IT managers, according to a recent survey. Paul Rubens discusses the issue.

Virtualization has run far ahead of the management systems most enterprises use to control their IT environments. That’s a problem because this lack of control means many enterprises can’t unleash the full potential of server virtualization.

A recent survey called “VMware Management with Enterprise Management Systems from the Big 5: Microsoft, HP, IBM, CA and BMC” commissioned by Veeam Software, a maker of virtual infrastructure management software, gives some interesting insights into where management systems have fallen behind. The survey includes the views of more than 250 CIOs from the United States and Europe.

Almost 90 percent of the companies included in the survey use either Microsoft’s System Center, IBM Tivoli or HP OpenView to manage their corporate infrastructure. But when it comes to their VMware estates, these management frameworks appear to be inadequate — something that will sound familiar to anyone using VMware extensively. The survey found around 80 percent of the companies were using specialist tools primarily for virtualization because only these tools, rather than their management systems, gave them the granular control they need.

One of the key points about centralized management systems is that they offer a single management console that provides a view of an enterprise’s whole infrastructure.
