Manage VMware using System Center Ops Manager
Virtualization is a key technology for minimizing the overall cost of infrastructure ownership by lowering the number of physical machines required by maximizing the overall utilization of the hardware. By maximizing the load on each ESX Server Host it is possible to reduce the power and cooling requirements, rack space usage as well as storage and network components.
