Virtualization reduced the infrastructure cost by utilizing the hardware more efficiently and offers lot of other benefits.But Managing the virtual infrastructure is one of the difficult task since thousands of virtual objects are involved. Since the virtual machines are sharing the hardwares, we have to identify the critical virtual machines and needs to configure the service level priorities.Monitoring the hypervisor performance also matter to balance the load between the physical servers. Another important factor is capacity management. We need to closely monitor the resource to avoid the VM crash due to insufficient resources.
