Case Studies

Recently, we did a storage upgrade and started seeing performance degradation, and what we found from Virtualization Manager was the Windows 7 development team that does application testing was taking a lot of snapshots. Virtualization Manager quickly reported on those as they were becoming old snapshots causing storage performance issues and giving us a lot of information and alerts on why VMs were running on high capacity.”
