Optimize your virtual infrastructure by determining optimal VM placement and identifying and then eliminating VM sprawl
Project when current resources will run out based on historical trending, and estimate the number of VMs that can be added before resources are exhausted
Use “what-if” scenarios of adding more hosts, VMs and storage
SolarWinds Virtualization Manager delivers robust capacity-focused functionality in three core areas for both VMware® and Hyper-V® environments: virtual capacity optimization and analysis, capacity planning, and capacity operations.
Virtualization Capacity Optimization helps you use advanced search-based analytics to determine optimal VM placement, explore what-if scenarios, identify capacity shortfalls and determine application-specific capacity needs. This helps you determine when you will run out of resources, how many VMs will fit in your virtual infrastructure, the amount of additional resources you need to buy and where you should place new VMs. It also gives you the ability to run what-if scenarios to determine the impact of different modifications to resources.
Virtualization Capacity Planning helps you budget and plan for new purchases, identify and eliminate VM sprawl, zombie VMs, orphan file, and rogue VMs. It even helps you model the cost of running specific VMs in the public cloud versus in your internal virtual infrastructure. You’ll also be able to see which departments are using specific resources, enabling important business decisions.
Virtualization Capacity Operations allow you to easily monitor, predict, detect and troubleshoot capacity bottlenecks with real-time dashboards and alerts. This helps you pinpoint critical capacity bottlenecks, fix resource contention quickly and project when the next virtualization capacity issue will occur.
