“Virtualization and all other forms of IT abstraction are built on the assumption that there is essentially infinite physical resources which are always available underneath,” said Mark Harris, Nlyte Software’s vice president of marketing and data center strategy. “This is a big assumption, and usually far from the reality of a modern data center. A majority of today’s processing in the enterprise is built upon virtualized servers, and the management of these servers in a virtual world has traditionally excluded the underlying physical resources.”
It is this physical layer that has been undermanaged for years and as a direct result, capacity related issues occur regularly. These unintended consequences of virtualization can and will be mitigated with the implementation of a robust DCIM Suite and its tight integration with the data center’s virtualization layer. The Nlyte Virtualization Connector 1.5 for vCenter Server addresses this undermanaged situation by allowing real-time integration between these two domains. Built upon the Nlyte NgageAPITM, this latest version enables customers to manage their IT infrastructure more dynamically than ever, by providing automatic discovery and monitoring of the VMware virtual machines, with a single view across all physical Hosts and their Guest virtual machines. In addition, Host and Guest relationship changes that occur in vCenter are now automatically updated in the core Nlyte data repository and all subsequent usage throughout the Nlyte system.
