IBM Systems Director VMControl: Cloud-ready management of Physical and Virtual Infrastructures

IBM® Systems Director VMControl™ helps you gain more from infrastructure wide virtualization, with cloud-ready management. The combination of IBM Systems Director and VMControl allows you to reduce the total cost of ownership of your virtualized environment – servers, storage and networks – by decreasing management costs, increasing asset utilization, and linking infrastructure performance to business goals.

VMControl simplifies the management of virtual environments across multiple virtualization technologies and hardware platforms, freeing you from ‘silos of virtualization’ and delivering enterprise-wide visibility and control. VMControl is a leading multi-platform virtualization management solution that is included with IBM Systems Director Editions, or available separately as a plug-in option for IBM Systems Director. This diversity of deployment options allows you to select the optimal level of VMControl functionality (Express, Standard or Enterprise) for your virtualized infrastructure and to seamlessly scale up as it evolves.
