  • Answer: Can use View – this will limit storage. Usually used for desktop environment. Lifecycle Manager – think provisioning. Can consolidated storage – they think they need 40 gig but will get 10 gig.
  • Vision Corp – Lab Manager. V Control handles this – templates – requested by developers, creation is in the background.
Question 3:
  • Has anyone upgrade from 3.5 To V Center 4.0. Migration – any issues. How do licenses work? Only run in test environment.
  • Answer: Vision Core – V Fog Light captures performance information.
  • Did resource pools have to be recreated?
  • Capacity Monitoring Software: Also V Kernel?
  • Does it provide information on bottlenecks. Software seems to be more of a modeling software.
  • Comparisons: Setup and running – VKernel acts like an appliance. Foglight allows monitoring for physical and virtual.
