So, what is important about this release and why should you care? Well, a number of things.
- It demonstrates that PERFMAN is used in very large data centers.
- It shows the usage of PERFMAN to manage both the physical and virtual infrastructure, as well as the transition from physical to virtual.
- It reiterates the PERFMAN claim of ease-of-use and deployment.
The second bullet brings up an interesting topic. Who can do this well? Well, the answer is not necessarily easy, but in a future blog post, I will attempt to define the different players and their strengths in this lifecycle.
