In a virtual infrastructure, resources such as CPU, memory, and storage may be reserved by a virtual machine, but unutilized. This results in inefficient use of the resources and increases the cost of operations. Identifying waste in an infrastructure usually requires time-consuming manual analysis from a user as well as setting of thresholds and rules if using traditional tools.
To help reduce the waste, SIOS iQ continuously analysis VMware environments and automatically identifies Idle VMs and Snapshots as well as the associated potential monthly cost savings a user can get from reclaiming the associated waste. All the insight is delivered without requiring the user to set any rules or thresholds in the product.
