Welcome to my Blog on the latest trends in systems management. In this Blog, I will look at systems management from a business process perspective. The initial focus will lie on server virtualization management, cloud systems management and workload automation. Within this context, I will analyze and try to quantify the efficiency gains that the organization can realize by implementing systems management tools and processes. However, as systems management does not exist in a vacuum, it is essential to tie these findings together with the latest developments in neighboring disciplines such as configuration management systems, IT service management, process automation, security, networking, applications management etc.
Some of the initial topics will be:
1. Workload Automation - State of the Discipline
2. Cloud-bursting - How to Use It Right
3. New Trends And Fads in Server Virtualization
4. Storage Virtualization and Automation - The Next Frontier
