The Increasing Importance of Managing Vblock Platforms

One of the hot button topics at Cisco Live in London with customers of VCE Vblock Infrastructure Platforms is the increasing recognition of the importance of management. Many Vblock Platform customers have neither purchased any management for the converged infrastructure nor considered how the workloads or services will be managed.

One of the hot button topics at Cisco Live in London with customers of VCE Vblock Infrastructure Platforms is the increasing recognition of the importance of management. Many Vblock Platform customers have neither purchased any management for the converged infrastructure nor considered how the workloads or services will be managed.

To optimize the TCO, management should be at the forefront of any converged fabric buying decision. Why? The proper planning for both the fabric itself and the workloads will enable TCO optimization over both the short and long term.

The right management enables VCE customers to utilize automation and other key capabilities to reduce the risks associated with moving workloads onto a Vblock Platform and accelerate the deployment cycle. For example, capacity management provides the “what-if” analysis of workloads that aid in optimizing Vblock Platform resources and enables smoother workload migrations. Another example is planning a Vblock Platform-based virtual desktop service and the importance of a streamlined provisioning process.
