80% of CIOs Prefer to Manage Virtual Infrastructure with Existing Enterprise Management Systems
Survey shows reliance on specialist tools is driven by lack of virtualisation-specific functionality from the Big 5
Included in the research:
- 49% cite a lack of visibility into the virtual environment as a delay to IT problem resolution
- 48% of organisations are selecting a hypervisor based on ease of management instead of depth of functionality
- 80% currently using specialist tools to manage their infrastructure would prefer to use their traditional enterprise-wide management tools but can’t due to a lack of functionality, including the ability to monitor, manage and make changes to a virtual infrastructure at a granular level
“When organisations first adopted virtualisation, its attraction was clear: the ability to implement large IT environments without the need for a corresponding huge physical infrastructure,”
Forty-five percent of those surveyed stated that management concerns are actually slowing their adoption of virtualisation. In addition, of those organisations that are using both VMware vSphere® and Microsoft Hyper-V, 71% are currently facing difficulties managing both hypervisors from a single console. Moreover, 68% of all companies believe that it will become important to manage both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V from a single dashboard.
“The future of virtualisation must be about co-existence,”
