What’s Next After Server Virtualization? Orchestration


There are a number of steps an organization could take after successfully executing a server consolidation strategy. One of them is to orchestrate workloads to make maximum use of physical server capacity, reduce power consumption, reduce administrative and operational expenses and create an environment which can assure that each and every workload can meet service level objectives. This usually requires tools to do the following things:

  • Discover available resources such as physical systems, virtual systems, network virtualization resources and storage resources
  • Catalog these resources allowing management of these resource by workload, business unit, location of physical systems and other useful categories
  • Evaluate current usage of resources
  • Model or calculate best possible use of datacenter resources based upon policies, service level objectives or other metrics
  • Dynamically reassign or re-purpose  resources as required to comply with policies, meet service level objectives and the like
  • Continue to scan the environment to manage events based upon time, occurrence of specific events, capacity considerations and ongoing workload demands
