As with all major IT revolutions before it, virtualization has introduced new and difficult management challenges. Traditional management tools and processes are less useful for virtualization deployments, and without new approaches to Virtual Systems Management (VSM), enterprises will suffer from increased downtime, higher costs, staff shortages, lack of flexibility, competitive disadvantage, and many other problems.

This EMA research report provides data and advice on managing virtualization deployments more effectively, including:

• A full description of 18 different VSM disciplines, including how they differ from traditional physical management disciplines, and how they can affect virtualization outcomes, both for better and for worse
• Benchmarks for 17 different VSM metrics, highlighting the best, above average, and below average outcomes, so that enterprises can rank themselves against the best and worst of their peers
• Correlation of the best and worst performers with virtualization management disciplines and tools, and with the importance of integration to effective VSM practices
• A number of case studies based on in-depth focal interviews with organizations involved with VSM initiatives
