Is a “single pane of glass” possible? To manage VMware and Hyper-V alone you need a whole array of tools:
  • Hyper-V Manager
  • System Center Virtual Machine Manager
  • System Center Operations Manager
  • System Center Configuration Manager
  • Network Management Utilities
  • Storage Management Utilities
  • VMware vCenter
  • VMware vCenter Hypervisor Manager
  • Performance Management Tools

And the list goes on! Although a lot of tools profess to allow you to manage multiple vendors with their “single pane of glass” solution, all evidence points to the contrary.

As much as we could review every technology and way to streamline platforms and network fabrics, there’s an easier way: hire someone to manage it for you. Outsourcing your security management, your storage management, your infrastructure, etc. will save manpower, time, money and offload the responsibility of keeping abreast of each new technology.
