It’s All About the App: Application-Centric Systems Management
Issues with storage, virtual machines, networks, and servers can affect application performance. In turn, downtime occurs and business performance is affected. To maintain application performance and availability, system administrators should utilize a holistic approach to managing their IT infrastructure. This whitepaper from Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) provides the methodology an IT admin needs to utilize an application-focused approach.
This whitepaper highlights the following:
- An application-centric approach to systems management for the entire stack – including applications, databases, virtual machines, physical hosts, datastores, LUNS, and storage arrays – and how they must be managed.
- When selecting application-centric systems management solutions, what are the major requirements you should consider?
- An example of a well-integrated and application-centric systems management tool and how it solves challenges faced by IT pros every day.
A traditional approach to systems management is no longer viable. Technical issues must be evaluated and qualified based on their relevance to application performance. Download this whitepaper to learn more about this modern approach to effective systems management.
"For IT operations to ensure application SLAs, it is essential for systems management solutions to ‘know’ and monitor every systems component…that affects application health."
