Workload Routing & Reservation:
5 Reasons Why It Is Critical To Virtual & Cloud Operation
When observing the current generation virtual and internal cloud environments, it appears that the primary planning and management tasks have also made the transition to purpose-built software solutions. But when you dig in a little deeper, there is one area that is still shamefully behind: the mechanism to determine what infrastructure to host workloads on is still in the stone ages. The ability to understand the complete set of deployed infrastructure, quantify and qualify the hosting capabilities of each environment, and to make informed decisions regarding where to host new applications and workloads, is still the realm of spreadsheets and best guesses.
This paper identifies five reasons why the entire process of workload routing and capacity reservation must make the transition to become a core, automated component of IT planning and management.
