Managing the Virtualization Maturity Lifecycle
Virtualization demonstrates substantial benefits — in agility, availability and cost reduction — but it is not all clear sailing. Most organizations struggle, sooner or later, with added complexity, staffing requirements, SLA management, departmental politics and more.
In fact, most organizations face one (or more) clear ‘tipping points’, where virtualization deployment stalls as they stop to deal with these new challenges. This ‘VM stall’ tends to coincide with different stages in the virtualization maturity lifecycle — such as the transition from tier 2/3 server consolidation to mission-critical tier 1 applications; or from basic provisioning automation to a private/hybrid cloud approach.
Working with industry analysts and other experts, CA Technologies has devised a simple 4-step model to describe the progression from an entry-level virtualization project to a mature dynamic data center and private cloud strategy.
This video describes that maturity lifecycle and the key management activities you will need to get past these tipping points, drive virtualization maturity and deliver virtualization success, at every stage of your virtualization lifecycle.
