While virtualization has helped improve data center efficiency and capabilities, it presents challenges for organizations looking to monitor, manage, and optimize the performance of their applications and the networks they run on. That’s because virtual systems are often essentially invisible black boxes to traditional performance management and monitoring technologies.
- The number one challenge for application performance management is increasingly virtualized IT infrastructures.
- 26 percent of organizations are challenged by increasing data center costs.
- Companies working to manage the performance impact of server virtualization are 49% more likely to set performance baselines based on historic data.
- Companies managing the performance of virtualized servers are 91% more likely to invest in an end-to-end performance management platform.
Companies that have invested in current-generation performance management tools have not only gained the ability to handle the performance challenge of virtual systems, but also have a higher level of performance management control and understanding. This research report explores how businesses can break through virtualization blind spots and achieve high application performance, whether the applications run on traditional hardware or on virtual servers.
