IBM Upgrades Software To Manage Data Centers And Virtualization


By www - Posted on 19 October 2009

IBM is enhancing its VMControl software for managing data centers to give enterprise users a single point of control across multiple types of IT systems and virtualization technologies. Combined with IBM's Tivoli software, VMControl allows for combinations of physical and virtual IBM servers to be managed as a single entity, called "system pooling."

IBM says this approach optimizes virtualization by helping corporate data centers simplify management functions and better share and prioritize use of critical resources such as CPU, memory and storage. Having centralized control over virtualized environments lets companies manage large amounts of information and processing resources and then parcel them out to applications when and where they're needed.
