What is Virtualization Management?

Virtualization management is the overseeing and administration of the tasks and processes involved in a virtualization environment. It involves the collective methods, technologies, and tools that are needed to ensure authority and management over an organization's virtualized infrastructure.

Virtualization management is usually performed from a virtual machine manager utility or application. The purpose of virtualization management is to make sure that virtual machines provide services and computing operations as they should. This may include processes like:

  • Creating, deleting, and modifying virtual machines, networks, or the whole infrastructure.
  • Ensuring that virtual machine software stays updated.
  • Establishing and maintaining the connectivity across virtualization environments.
  • Monitoring and managing the performances of virtual machines and the virtualization environment.
