Is a single management tool enough for heterogeneous hypervisor environments?
January 31, 2015 – 2:01 am | Comments Off

Virtualized organizations are increasingly heterogeneous, using multiple hypervisors to mitigate vendor-dependence. As more hypervisors enter the data center, using a single management tool is starting to become a viable option. But multi-hypervisor management tools are still relatively new, and it’s important for organizations to evaluate and verify prospective tools before committing to a particular product.

Multi-Hypervisor

It’s important to point out that the functionality between major hypervisors may be similar, but the ways in which that functionality is implemented can vary dramatically between hypervisor vendors. These differences can have a profound impact on the way management tools recognize and interact with different hypervisors. Updates and patches to a particular hypervisor may not be properly accommodated by the management tool, leading to lost management control, reporting errors and other potential problems. It is always important to test upcoming changes in a lab environment to determine possible problems (and find workarounds) before rolling out changes to production.
