Address Performance Challenges

Performance issues have existed since hard drives were first introduced, and only grew worse as data moved from megabytes to terabytes and beyond. For a long time, performance management was limited to snapshots of device-level activity and assorted infrastructure outputs. The team then did an averaging of results, which couldn’t capture the highs and lows of the snapshot period. This hid intermittent issues and “ghosts in the machine” that weren’t easy to see in these snapshot intervals. Software-defined strategies have the potential to put the snapshot model in the closet for good.  Modern infrastructure performance management (IPM) is a combination of workload, network, compute and storage monitoring tools.

IT infrastructures are growing increasingly complex; this idea is nothing new. There are well-known reasons behind this, including more end users, expanding data volume across more devices, and a multitude of customer-facing applications and systems. Businesses are trying to leverage a combination of virtualization and cloud environments to gain the right level of flexibility, efficiency and speed, but the roadmap is also creating IT management headaches.

As organizations attempt to strike the proper balance between new and developing technologies, they come across fresh obstacles at every turn. Which application workloads belong in which environments? What kind of experience will this change result in for my customers? How can I ensure my IT performance teams are reaching maximum productivity with minimum troubleshooting? These are questions that only become more difficult to answer as heterogeneous application infrastructures take shape. John Gentry, vice president of marketing and alliances, Virtual Instruments, has identified five challenges and tips that are crucial for organizations to consider as they work to guarantee optimal output.
