We recently talked with a prospect with a classic use case. See if you can relate:
- We have a mix of VMware, Hyper-V and Xen and moving away from VMware.
- VMs are spun up for test and dev. Their shelf-life varies from days to months.
- We want to provide self-service for our business users, but with quotas and parameters.
We heard: Provisioning is too time consuming with the work to backup and restore, snapshot and clone. Giving control to end users will benefit everybody and speed things up. We’d like an alternative to Microsoft System Center.
Isn’t this like a chef who has been given a list of disparate ingredients and told to make soup?
Well, good news, this is exactly the scenario for our ConVirt management software, which provides the single pane-of-glass for managing different virtualization technologies. And, more than a central control point, ConVirt delivers automation and orchestration across different virtualization types, along with self-service capabilities for your end users.
We won over this prospect by demonstrating how ConVirt can serve as its single management system. For more on this topic, check out our on-demand webinar “Managing the Multi-Hypervisor Data Center”.
Enjoy the soup.
