Server virtualization deployments have outgrown physical server installations, yet the ability to manage these resources can still be a challenge. Automated server resource management is critical to growing the use and value of data center virtualization. The automation and dynamic provisioning of server resources helps reduce costs and increase datacenter flexibility.
CDvLB provides financial benefits by maximizing server resources, and thus, reducing the amount of servers needed to respond to user requests. Beyond reducing capital costs, it also lowers power, cooling and management to achieve lower operational costs. These cost benefits, when combined with greater server and application availability and improved response times, help to ensure thriving and efficient application delivery.
To eliminate critical problems in advance, CDvLB proactively monitors server responses and availability, and automatically corrects performance and availability problems. The ability to both obtain information on the state of virtual machine instances and issue commands to virtual infrastructure, allows administrators to take full advantage of their virtual environment and the performance of server resources.
